The Scotland District: Barbados’ Rugged East Coast
When you imagine Barbados, you probably see white sand beaches first. From the front 9 of the golf course, that’s what you’ll see: the west coast’s perfect stretch of beach and sparkling Caribbean Sea.
The rugged east coast however, or what locals call the Scotland District, is incredible to look at (especially from our elevated vantage point!) This area is a total contrast to the west, but equally spectacular. The Scotland District is home to Cattlewash and Bathsheba beaches, the “sleeping giant” (a clay and stone hillside under a sheet of grass and shrubs), swirling white caps of an unforgiving Atlantic ocean, coastal reef that exposes rock pools with fish and marine life at low tide, world class surfing, and impressive boulders that appear to have been chucked onto the beach like marbles being pitched.
