Achmelvic Beach, West Scotland

ShaunW's picture

If you are traveling up the West Coast of Scotland, you must visit this spot, it's hard to believe that the fine white sand and green waters are here on the West Coast of Scotland. Once you have passed the village and made it down the 3 mile single track road, park in the car park at the end of the track and take the short walk through the dunes to the beach.  You can admire the view or walk up to either the left or right and climb the rocks (fairly easy) to give you a view over the whole bay.

Usually quite, lots of opportunity for seascape photos, sunset, long exposure. You could get lost here.

There is a Youth Hostel and plenty of places to stay in Lochinver, or do what I did and stay in Ullapool (30 miles South 1 hour in the car).
