SCOTLAND : THE COAST

New title

Scotland's landscape is dramatic, varied and often remote. However, most inhabitants live within only a couple of miles of the coast and wherever you are in Scotland, you are never more than 40 miles from the sea. In the west, sheltered sea lochs provide a stark contrast to the exposed rocky shores of the open coast. In the east, the predominantly low-lying coastline is dominated by dune-fringed sandy beaches.
