Achmelvich bay has a stunning and popular beach; this walk leads from it along a good path north above the coastline to visit a ruined old mill and hidden sandy cove. There is also the option to hunt for a hidden hermit's 'castle'.


Good path to Alltan'abradhan. Optional extension to the hermit's castle is rough and pathless but short.

Public Transport

No public tranpost. Achmelvich Beach can be reached by following a good footpath from Baddidarrach in Lochinver.


Achmelvich Beach car park. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
