Walk quite long and samey to get there and not as spectacular as other beaches we visited in the area but still worth going for remoteness and lovely dunes etc. Our favourite beach was in the Kyle of Durness - stunning turquoise sea.

Park your car at the Sandwood Bay car park and use facilities, as it's the last you'll see. Then start your 4.5 miles walk through what can only be described as tranquil and incredible moorland. The path is very well built and fantastic that it...More

Visited this bay already having been to both Polin and Oldshoremore Beaches. The four half mile journey via foot after parking in the small car park combines track, moorland, boggy grass and marshland before arriving at the sand dunes and then the bay. Whilst it...More

An iconic West Coast beach that is well worth the walk. The work of the John Muir Trust and the local community in upgrading the access path is to be hugely appreciated. Even on a windy November day it was an amazing space.

A good hike out. 7 km? Each way but good path. We sat on the dunes for picnic and enjoyed the view. Sheep, deer, swans!

This is a lovely beach, but the walk in is fairly long. We did it on a cloudy day in October, I imagine it would be fantastic on a dive sunny day earlier in the year.

We walked along the track to Sandwood Bay to reach the beach, which is well worth the visit as it's glorious, with miles of unspoilt sands, although to traverse the whole of it, you have to go inland quite a bit to get across the...More

Sorry, but I don't think it would be suitable. It is a 4 mile walk from the nearest car park / toilets (and then 4 back!). There are rough parts, a fairly steep climb at one point and I think coming back up through the... More

I assume you would catch a train as far north as you can, Ullapool maybe, and then take buses to kinlochbervie. Following that you'd either find a good soul to give you a lift to the start point, approx 3 miles or add that... More
