Sandwood Bay

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

A walk in along a bleak moorland track is amply rewarded when the fabulous views of Sandwood Bay come into view, perhaps the most beautiful beach in Britain. Spend time exploring the mile of golden sand and dunes, with rocky cliffs and a giant sea stack to complete the scene. Despite its popularity, Sandwood Bay never seems busy as the beach is big enough to absorb the visitors.

Terrain

Level track with a couple of streams which are usually very easy to cross unless very wet.

Public Transport

None to start, nearest bus stop Kinlochbervie
