  • 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 ...  more »
  • Easy access to the beach over rough grass and sand dunes,. White powdery sand, there are sheltered spots to sit and reflect.  more »
  • 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’l...  more »

  • Just gorgeous! After a week with family in Scotland back in may 2016, me and my husband decided to make the trip up and see this beautiful place, we walked from the small car park with all of our backpacking gear, it’s quite a hike but so worth it! We spent one night here and it was bliss, not another soul in sight. Will definitely be back.
  • If you like walking, you’ll like this beach. It’s about 1.5hrs walk from the nearest road. The beach is fine, but no more special than a lot of other beaches in the north west.
  • The tops. A jewel in the glittery crown of the often beautiful Highlands and islands. Takes a while to get to start of the path up there in Sutherland and you'll then need to hoof it for four miles across a moor and past little lochs. But so worth it when you eventually, improbably, stumble on a lovely long stretch of beach. One of those good to be alive discoveries.
  • One of the highlights on my trek trough the Scottish Highlands. I camped there overnight with two fellow hikers. Great views and great memories.
  • We cycled out on our mountain bikes with our 12 year old daughter and 10 year old son. It was a fairly easy cycle with some trickier parts on the second half but the views and beach are well worth the effort. The John Muir trust volunteers were out doing a fantastic job tidying up any stray rubbish that had either been washed in or left by visitors / wild campers so we took three bags of rubbish back out for them.
