"Sunny Nairn (Well Sometimes)" Nairn by stevezero

Nairn Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 17 photos

Nairn lays claim to being one of the driest and sunniest places in the country. It became popular as a resort in Victorian times with the coming of the railway. Formerly a community of fishermen and farmers, Nairn has developed into a traditional seaside town, with its sandy East Beach and range of tourist facilities.

The first time we visited it was blowing a gale. fortunately on our recent visit it was a lovely sunny morning.

    Steve, your picture of the beach is so like what we have on the other side of the firth. Just looking at the white sand and grass [bent], actually made me smell the old familiar damp smell of the sand. A wee bit homesick.
