This beach is a regular candidate in the “Best beaches…” polls, a point to consider during your four mile walk to get there, on a path maintained by The John Muir Trust. The walk is nevertheless scenic and an enjoyable part of any visit to Sandwood Bay. You approach the beach from above, with a chance to savour the outstanding beauty from a distance. In the bay stands the sea stack Am Buachaille (the shepherd). The sand is powder fine and the sea is invariably azure blue. The area holds protected status, as part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). This is a beach that resonates in your mind long after you’ve returned from your visit. Highly recommended.
