Correct in most cases: up to the high water mark is HM Queen property and it is very difficult, although not impossible that someone owns a beach.

Different rules in Scotland though: a lot of people have "feif" (sp?) to the shore, a very old ruling which allows them to "own" the area below high water mark to a distance that a horse could be ridden out to at dead low water. Classic example of this is Largs Marina, Ayrshire: formerly Lord Glasgow owned "feif" to the shore and he sold it to the developers.

Yes, I know some great bays and inlets to anchor in but if I told you I'd have to .....etc etc etc
