Achmelvich Beach, Lochinver

#1 of 11 in Things to do in Lochinver
Achmelvich Beach, a small bay of fine white sand and turqouise water, sits nestled among the characteristic moorland and rocks of the northern highlands. Don't let the beach's Mediterranean appearance fool you, however, as the water stays cold and bracing even with the sun shining. Experience the waves on water skis or a windsurf board, or kayak along the rugged coastline. Fishermen will find the waters teem with fish, and hikers will find plenty of walks and climbs in the surrounding area. Nearby camping and caravan spots make a great base for a holiday in the area and provide basic amenities.

  • Fantastc beach but when we were there it was covered in thousands of jelly fish, justv bad timing I suppose. Definately a must visit if you are anywhere near it.  more »
  • The beach itself is very pretty, with lots of rocks to climb and tidal pools to explore. But even better is to walk around and discover hidden beaches and lochs tucked away from the crowds.  more »
