Hi Harry, I remember riding our bikes out to Nigg, early 50s I would say.

Hi Bob, yes I remember that bike ride. Those were the days. I think the bus passed us on the way, as there was a bus trip that day. Used to be a nice beach at Nigg. Happy birthday on the 31st, Bob.

My friend Margaret Ross and I also cycled to Nigg on a bank holiday in 1970, it must be a rite of passage! When you think how many families enjoyed the sand dunes at Nigg and bought an ice cream in the shop at Dunskeath. The hotel was popular for weddings too. If they aren't going to have rigs there it’s a shame that tourism cannot take over and redevelop the land.

Nigg beach was such a great place to go to. Liz and Harry, it should be developed as a tourist area.

I haven’t seen this before and it brings back many happy memories. It was quite a bike ride to get there but always worth it. Despite having been around the world I still think Nigg is the best beach I have ever seen. The sand was wonderful and the pebbles were all flat and round, nothing nasty to stand on when you stepped into the water.
I hope the hotel is still there. They weren’t too fussy about serving booze to youngsters and it was here I bought my first beer - it was Sweetheart Stout, I was 14 years old and Marty Wilde was top of the charts (Endless Sleep) Happy days!
