Beaches keep places on top Seaside Awards list
Banff's showpiece Links beach and Sandend beach near Portsoy have retained their standing among Scotland's top 59 bathing beaches.
Both picturesque and highly popular beaches have again been listed in the 2013 Scottish Seaside Awards by the environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful.
Banff Links and Sandend were among almost 30 beaches in the North and North East of Scotland which were commended for excellent litter management, bathing safety procedures and water quality.
