All reviews sand dunes stepping stones car park beautiful beach john muir remote beach walking boots worth every step soft sand miles walk ocean view long beach jaw dropping toilet block every inch worth the effort wild camping
careful leaving car park to get right path. The beach is very nice but not unique. The walk there is bleak and no views- beware of boggy bits and midges. There are better views for less effort unless you like long walks.
I only came across Sandwood Bay whilst I was looking into a visit to Cape Wrath, so I thought why not? The weather wasn’t great that day but the beauty of the Bay wasn’t dulled at all by it. Maybe I’ll return next year and...More
We visited Sandwood Bay during a week’s stay in the North West of Scotland and will definitely be coming back!
The nearest car park is located at Blairmore and has a box for donations to the John Muir trust. The start of the walk to...More
We visited here at the end of September. It was a long walk to get here but definatley worth it. A beautiful beach which is unspoilt. I would recommend going, however the walk to and from the bay is tough so make sure you are...More

We first visited Sandwood Bay many years ago. It was a lovely day, no car park, and poorly equipped for an easy but longish walk. On he way back the North Atlantic threw its worst at us and we were drenched and cold...but worth it....More
This is a 9 mile walk there and back.The only way to reach this mile long bay is on foot, but it is well worth the effort. On arrival you can see it through the dunes and it is pristine.The walk is fairly easy and...More
Please don't be put of by the 4 mile walk, there is a path most of the way and the only part that you might struggle with (if you're not the fittest) is coming back up from the beach, as you're walking up hill for...More
The most beautiful beach I have ever seen. The rock pools were amazing, clear sea, white sandy beach, rolling sand dunes. All untouched by humanity, unspoiled and natural still. It was really worth the wait.
We, however, were not prepared for the walk. We had...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
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 sand dunes would be very difficult. Oldshoremore Beach would be a possibility. It is a couple of hundred yards from the car park/ toilets.

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
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 to the walk, or a local taxi. You might get more info on the walk highlands or visit Scotland website.
