What You Need To Bring When Visiting Achmelvich Beach


What You Need To Bring When Visiting Achmelvich Beach

Achmelvich Beach is situated in the north of Scotland in the Highlands region, along the North Coast 500 route. It is a stunning beach with a lot to do, and a lot to get involved in. Despite the typically dreary weather of Scotland, this beach will give you the belief that you are in the Caribbean.

It is close to the NC500 Pods glamping retreat which is the perfect place to stay when visiting Achmelvich Beach. It has everything you need when travelling with WiFi and a TV included but is close enough to nature to give you a sense of freedom and relaxation. 

Achmelvich Beach is definitely worth visiting as it is a special place in one of the most beautiful regions in the country. However, it is not like the typical beach in the UK, it is a lot less busy and a lot more calm. This leaves the question: what should I bring?

Let’s take a look at all the essentials that should be brought to Achmelvich Beach and a few tips on how to enjoy yourself!

What Should I Bring When Visiting Achmelvich Beach?

There are a few things that you should certainly bring when visiting Achmelvich Beach, the beautiful coast. Some of them are the following:

A Camera

With it being such a stunning beach with scenery that is unmatched across the country, it would be dumb not to bring a camera to take a few pictures to show everyone else back home. 

Although we all carry cameras in our pockets (with our phones having very high quality cameras nowadays), there is nothing like getting the camera out and hearing that snap. The feeling of waiting to get your photos developed is one that we all treasure in our hearts. Considering the beauty that the beach offers also, a good camera pic is much more meaningful than a typical photo from your phone. A camera is essential when visiting Achmelvich Beach.

Fishing Rod

The North Atlantic Ocean is picturesque by any definition, but there is more than the eye-candy that makes it special. It is one of the most diverse regions in the United Kingdom for sea life and nature, with many different types of fish being in this ocean. 

This makes it a great spot to go fishing. There are many who flock to Achmelvich Beach every year to participate in the annual fishing competition, and people frequently go on boat trips to see if they can catch a couple. We recommend bringing a fishing rod, especially if you already have an interest in fishing. Fishing is one of the many things that you can do when visiting Achmelvich Beach for a day.


This one is something that we bring to every beach, but matters more with Achmelvich. The aquamarine, captivating sea will have you desperate for a swim in no time. It will have you believing that you are in the Mediterranean with the beautiful colour that is typically unheard of in the UK.

You will thank us for reminding you after you turn up and instantly feel the urge to dive in the ocean and let out all your worries.
