This outstanding shell beach runs for miles around a headland in the west of South Harris, with views across to Taransay.  It’s a regular candidate in the “best beaches…” polls and time seems to stand still here.  The bay is unspoilt and the turquoise water is inviting.  The natural beauty stops you in your tracks, creating a visual memory that you can draw on, whenever you need to in your future.  The panorama includes sand dunes and mountains across the bay.
