This beach clean is with BBC Scotland so please only come if you are happy to potentially be filmed and on the news to help promote the Great British Beach Clean.

Catherine will be on the beach doing an interview at 12pm and the beach clean and survey will start at 12.30pm.

If you have them please bring your own gardening type gloves and litter pickers if you have them but don't worry if not as there will be kit will be available to use.

Also worth knowing…

What to bring: We’d recommend you pack a rucksack with a few essentials like sunscreen, waterproofs, hand sanitiser, and perhaps some snacks and a drink (in a reusable bottle, of course).

What to wear: If you're picking up litter with your hands it's worth wearing a strong pair of gloves - like gardening gloves - just to make sure you're protected. Sturdy shoes are a must for protection too.

Under 16s: To comply with our insurance, volunteers under 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult who will be asked to sign a parental / guardian consent form on the day by the beach clean organiser.
