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. Much of the forestry plantations on the approach walk has been felled; the native woodland is now able to expand.


The walk is on tracks down to the coast. Return walk described involves crossing rope bridge and steep path; you can retrace steps to avoid this if necessary.
