Sandaig (Camusfearna)

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

A short walk to visit the beautiful and atmospheric Sandaig bay. This peaceful spot was immortalised as Camusfearna in 'Ring of Bright Water' - the famous book by Gavin Maxwell telling of his life with his pet otters at this lonely spot.


The walk is on tracks down to the coast. The alternative return walk described involves crossing rope bridge or burn and then an overgrown path; it's much easier to retrace your steps.

Public Transport
