You have to feel sorry for British naturists like myself. Personally I blame Sid James. In fact, all nude bathers really want to do is swim and soak up the sun without the encumbrance of a pair of shorts.
And, somewhat unlike over here ask naked rambler Stephen Goughthe activity is totally legal. Those bare-bottomed backpackers were on a 13,ft 4,m mountain top.
There are swingers clubs for those so inclined. No one bats an eyelid. And it saves hours in front of a washing machine.
How to protect yourself from peeping Toms. Besides, perverts will have an easier ride Googling naked women from the comfort of their bedroom. The signpost in the sand says it all: As their website reasonably states: Carry On Emmannuelle starring Kenneth Williams had just opened at the pictures.
The yard stretch of no-swimsuit shingle was the brainchild of local councillor Eileen Jakes. A landlady herself, Jakes thought it would pull in liberal-minded tourists.
She showed her fellow councillors topless photos of herself in Ibiza to prove the point. Reckon Scottish weather and naturism are chalk and cheese? Britain's best hidden beaches.
What would Nigel Farage say? Paddle through streams, tread over tree trunks and duck over dunes to find this mile of near-deserted tidal sand. Its isolated nature means that privacy is guaranteed.
