If you'd rather be by the seaside then take a look at these top properties, all of which have access to their own beach
Mill Farm House and New Aberdour Beach
Aberdour Beach, Galbraith
The 36-acre New Aberdour Beach in Aberdeenshire includes dramatic rocks caves, sandy and shingle beaches.
And it is highly renowned for being one of the north-east’s most beautiful beaches.
On sale for £90,000 on its own or for offers over £275,000 as part of a sale with a nearby farm house, New Aberdour Beach was the setting for the re-make of Whisky Galore! which hit cinemas in 2016.
Mill Farm Farmhouse is a traditional detached Grade B Listed Farmhouse, which enjoys a quiet peaceful location.
The property is in need of refurbishment internally yet offers excellent potential to allow any buyer the opportunity to create their own home.
New Aberdour Beach is just 400 metres away, meaning it is just a short stroll for the new owners if they fancy a dip.
If your property dreams are bigger than just owning your own beach then the plots that are for sale as part of Dalkeith Farm may be an ideal buy.
The site, located in Tarbert in Argyll and Bute, originally housed a dairy farm, and has been upgraded to retain the original farmhouse and part of the steading, but also to accommodate nine substantial plots, which boast spectacular views, fine nature walks, and the beach within 100 metres.
Seven of these plots, which have detailed planning consent, are now available for sale with Galbraith for a guide price of £60,000
As well as the stunning scenery, the plots have direct access to the beach, making this a perfect opportunity for anyone looking for a substantial property project.
Sea Breeze is a delightful, single storey, south facing property enjoying a superb and tranquil position on the edge of Loch Sunart on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula.
It is currently on the market with Galbraith for offers over £280,000
As described by the seller: "the spacious property, which is currently operated as a very successful 5* holiday let, has been recently modernised and updated by the current owners to create a stunning and very comfortable family home ideal for permanent or holiday use.
"To the front of Sea Breeze and included with the sale, is a privately owned stretch of shore frontage from where it is possible to launch small boats and enjoy other water sports on the loch. A deep water mooring is also included."
