The ocean around here is perfect for surfers. The waves are incredible and many weekends see groups of wet-suited young people having fun in the sea.

Glasgow University surf club often hires the village hall and makes a weekend of it. And you know, you’d never know they were here! I have been surprised at how quiet and respectful they are of the village and they leave the hall – and the beautiful beach – exactly as they find it.

Some weekends I’ve seen surf lessons on the main beach and wished I were younger, fitter (and able to swim) so I could join them. It looks like such fabulous fun!
