Achmelvich Beach, Lochinver
(4.8/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. With our online itinerary creator, Lochinver attractions like Achmelvich Beach can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • We visited Achmelvich on our honeymoon in 1971. It is still as beautiful but does not have the remote feel it had then. Chalets have been built overlooking the beach and large caravan park nearby - so...  more »
  • We walked from Achmelvich to the ruined mill and back - great walk. Beach is gorgeous white sand backed by cliffs - people were looking out to sea in the hope of seeing a dolphin, whale or two. Really...  more »
