Newton Beach – Top in Scotland!

The Newton Beach in Millport revealed as the county’s sole winner in the annual awards scheme run by environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful.

It’s the seventh year in a row Newton Beach has been a winner in the awards which recognise the high standards provided to users – from keeping sand litter-free to providing excellent information and accessible amenities. Scottish Beach Award flags will be flying from the beaches from Thursday, June 1 which mark the traditional start of the Scottish bathing season.

Derek Robertson, Chief Executive of Keep Scotland Beautiful added: “The Scottish Beach Awards set the standard for our stunning coastlines and inland shores – making sure that they are litter free, provide excellent facilities for families and encourage more visitors to our beautiful beaches.”

“Going to the beach is a tradition that we want to continue, whilst protecting this valuable environment. It is vital that we maintain our support for organisations efforts to ensure that North Ayrshire’s coastlines offer a great day out whilst recognising the wider benefits of a good quality environment for people’s health and wellbeing and local economies.”

Make 2017 the year you visit Scotland’s top beach.
