Tolsta Head and Traigh Mhor
Tolsta Head - Rubha Tholastaidh in Gaelic - is a cliff-girt headland projecting from the east coast of Lewis. This walk gives some fine coastal cliff scenery as well as bird and sea-mammal watching opportunities. A short but very steep descent then leads down to Traigh Mhor, one of Lewis' finest beaches.
No path, very boggy and unprotected clifftops. Extremely steep grass descent, then sandy beach and minor road.
North Tolsta is well served by bus from Stornoway.
