Luskentyre Sands (Losgaintir)

Luskentyre Sands have been voted the finest beach in the UK. There are many other contenders but the setting is undeniably magnificent. This walk heads across the sands and then above the shoreline before returning through the village. Note that the route is impassable at high tide.


Sandy beach (can be tiring underfoot), then grassy coastal path and minor road.
