Sandwood Bay Beach, Kinlochbervie

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.

  • The walk there isn’t remarkable and it was pretty windy and wet on our way there. However, the sun broke through at the beach and everything was worth it.  more »

  • 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.
  • Such a pristine beach, turquoise sea, I just loved it. We camped there for one night right on the beach, away from the midges. 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😊
  • Beautiful, hidden away beach (9 mile round trip). Very good stony trail leading up to it, with very few people on the beach itself. Well worth the walk, felt like you stumbled upon a Scottish secret :)
  • Spectacular remote beach not accessible by car. It took 3h to walk from the car park with heavy backpacks. Beautiful shallow lake close to the beach and amazing views from the cliffs.
  • The scenery was magnificent but the midges were unbearable. Was hoping to stay 2 nights but could only handle 1 due to midges. We took too much stuff which made the 2 way walk quite difficult for our family of 3. Would go again but much better prepared. Shame there is no driftwood for a fire as that mat have kept the midges at bay. The midges were horrendous.
