Sandwood Bay Beach, Kinlochbervie

Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Shrouded in legends of mermaids and ghost sailors, Sandwood Bay Beach sits against the backdrop of large sand dunes and gently rolling moorland, with nearly 2.4 km (1.5 mi) of wide pink sand flanked by rocky cliffs and a giant sea stack. Prepare to trek a bleak but well-trodden path through a freshwater loch to get to this remote bay. Spend time exploring dunes, searching for shipwrecks buried in the sand, or simply sitting on a rock and watching the sea.

  • A truly wonderful place. Beautiful beach and crystal clear waters, with the setting sun warming your face; can't beat it. Easy enough 4 mile walk in...take a midge net.

Walked to the cliff the next morning, could see the rock from the top. A bit difficult to get to the bottom as there is no way, we scramble down but had to come back because the the tide came in so fast😊
