Yes there are times that dog's are excluded from this beach. But it is a nice-clean stretch of beach. Sometimes people of the town forget how good it is.

A long and often almost deserted beach with a mixture of sand and pebbles. Looks very inviting on a hot summers day. Parking can be a bit of a challenge.

From the furthest point of Dalkieth road, just under 2 miles by Google maps. About a 10 mins drive.

Hi there I've probably missed your visit so apologies. I have no idea what crabbing is 😱. If it involves rock pools then saltburn is the place to go.
