couple of miles past smoo cave we noticed an island just off the coast, i was really keen to stop and take a picture. we stopped at first conveniece, which happened to be an info point about ceannabeinne clearance :)
and we found this beautiful beach, just accidentally :)
very much worth exploring, i would encourage you all to have a walk and check out the stacks and a cave. nevermind the clearance :) the trail - yeah it's ok but if not for the beach i wouldnt recommend spending time trying to find traces of the past

however the beach is spectacular :)

look at that! a beach! let's check it out!
