A little way north of the village of New Aberdour, a narrow road drops down from Aberdeenshire farmland to reach Aberdour Bay. But this is no sandy tourist hotpot: instead there's just raw, beautiful coastline with dramatic sandstone arches and caves at the eastern end of the long, shingle beach. All of this is best explored when the tide's out, as well as the rock pools exposed by the receding water level.
