Tarskavaig Bay has a pebble beach, set in a characterful location on the Sleat Peninsula, in the south west of Skye. With a westerly aspect, the beach has the meagre remains of an abandoned castle behind it and distant views up to the Black Cuillins in the north. There’s an elemental feel here, facing the prevailing winds and exposed to the natural conditions. It’s an invigorating and rejuvenating spot on a beautiful island.
An eloquent eulogy to the beach, from Donald, at The Blue Studio.

It will take you a while to get to Tarskavaig Bay on the Sleat of Skye, but I wager that it will be worth it. As I closed the car door on arrival, a sense of peace and tranquility prevailed under blue skies. It’s a rocky bay and beach, with evidence of crofting strips leading back from the beach to the hilly backdrop. when here, you feel that time has stood still and you can imagine the peoples that have passed this way over thousands of years. Highly recommended.
