The spectacular approach to Huisinis beach whets the appetite for the pleasure to come. You drive along a scenic, twisting fourteen miles long lane. Spectacular Amhuinnsuidhe Castle guards the approach, with canons pointing seaward. The beach itself is no disappointment, featuring white sand and backed by cropped grass. If you stroll over the back of the hill, more visual splendours await, which on this re-visit included a view to St Kilda on the horizon.

If you want stunning beauty in an isolated setting, this could be the place for you. Huisinis beach can be found at the end of a long single track road in the southwest of North Harris. It’s an area of outstanding natural beauty, with excellent sea trout and salmon fishing. On the way to the beach, you pass Amhuinnsuidhe Castle and there are just a few houses by the beach itself. Across the isthmus is the island of Scarp, the site of an experimental rocket postal service. Highly recommended.
