Sandwood Bay Beach ***

In this region: <<<<<  >>>>>


Sandwood Bay is a remote sandy bay north of Kinlochbervie, reached by what has been called 'one of the best walks in Scotland'. The main attraction at Sandwood itself is a glorious beach, perhaps the finest and most unspoiled beach in Britain, backed by large dunes and freshwater Sandwood Loch with views out to the high cliffs, the famous tall sea stack Am Buachaille (The Herdsman), and towards the Isle of Lewis.

One of the reasons it is unspoiled, of course, is that it is so remote. The beach is part of Sandwood Estate, managed by the John Muir Trust.
