Sandaig (Camusfearna)

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

A short walk down through the forestry to the beautiful and atmospheric Sandaig bay. This peaceful spot was immortalised as Camusfearna in 'Ring of Bright Water' - the famous book by Gavin Maxwell telling of his life with his pet otters at this lonely spot. NOTE: Recent tree-felling work has affected this route.


The walk is on forestry tracks down to the coast with the option (as described) of returning on a steep woodland path or back via the forestry track.
