I'd missed the information on this website about the stunning white sand beach at Port Stoth along this walk. We whiled away some time as the only ones sat on the beach and we spotted plenty of cormorants diving into the sea hunting for fish - a few of which were caught on camera.

This walk far surpassed my expectations and its one I'd highly recommend - not much effort but big rewards!



I hope you enjoy the video walk report
