Ceann a' Mhara and Traigh Bhi, Balephuil

Whilst Tiree is largely flat and fertile, the Ceann a'Mhara headland is the exception, with rugged and dramatic coastal scenery. With the contrasting approach across the sands of Traigh Bhi, this walk is a Tiree classic.


Sandy beach, then rough, rocky and pathless walking before return across grassy machair.
