A BORDERS beach has been deemed the second best in Scotland in a new travel survey.

A list of the 11 most beautiful beaches has been shared by Time Out, and the travel magazine has chosen a Berwickshire location as the runner-up in the poll.

Coldingham Bay is only kept off the top spot by Luskentyre Sands on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides.

The beach is described as a “perfectly formed crescent of golden sand wrapped in steep hills”.

The report adds: “Tucked away on the Berwickshire coast between Eyemouth and St Abbs, Coldingham Bay is one of the most 'Instagrammable' shore-fronts in Britain”.

“Not least thanks to a braid of brightly coloured beach huts popping in pinks, yellows, turquoises,s and blues among the dunes.

“Its sheltered location makes Coldingham hugely popular with water sports enthusiasts of all different kinds, from body boarders and kayakers to wild swimmers and not least, surfers. Buy or hire gear from St Vedas Surf Shop just up the road.”

Coming in sixth of the list is Portobello Beach in Edinburgh.
