Where and Tips

Sutherland (Scotland)
United Kingdom
After a small walk of about 4 and a half mile on a path leading from the gravel car park at the hamlet of Blairmore on to the Beach,we were met by the sound of the Sea and Bird life before we actually saw the Sands. Then you meet the beautiful Dunes and the stretch of Beach that seems to go on for ever,as you look over to the left of the beach then you will see a Sea stack called Am Buachaille (The Herdsman).It's hard to describe how i felt when i first saw it,it was overwhelming and breathtaking,i just thought this part of unspoiled Scotland is a true beauty to set your eyes upon,it's an image i will never forget and i will be going back again next year for more of the same.




I've got one or two ;-) .....

Martin, I've been there several times over the years, the last time was May 2015 doing the Cape Wrath trail, a 200+ miles backpacking walk from Fort William to Cape Wrath.

Prescilla, Yes just about the best baybeach in the UK in my opinion.
