  • West Bay or Bagh Siar on the Isle of Vatersay is an unspoilt white sandy bay.

    The Annie Jane, a three-masted immigrant ship out of Liverpool bound for Quebec, struck rocks off West Beach during a storm in September 1853. In spite of the conditions, islanders tried to rescue the passengers and crew, but only a few survived. A small cairn and monument marks the wreck site, an inscription reads:

    “On 28th September 1853 the ship Annie Jane with emigrants from Liverpool to Quebec was totally wrecked in this bay and threefourths of the crew and passengers numbering about 350 men women and children were drowned and their bodies interred here.”

    Facilities include car parking, toilets and campsite.
