Clashnessie Bay has a very fine sandy beach, one of few in Assynt to face north. Its name comes from the Gaelic Clais an Easaidh - the Channel of the Waterfall - and the falls which give the name make for a short if boggy hike. The Clashnessie Falls are 15m high and are most impressive when in spate.


Minor road, track, stepping stones and boggy path.
