Dùn Ban and Halaman Bay, Tangasdale

This superb walk passes the shores of Loch Tangasdale before heading across a bare, rocky landscape to reach the spectacularly situated iron-age fort of Dùn Ban. The return takes in Halaman beach, one of the finest and most popular on Barra.


Machair paths, then rougher ground with both grass and rocky sections; finally sandy beach. The walk is mostly waymarked with posts.
