Sandwood Bay is a natural bay on the far north-west coast of Scotland and lies about 5 miles south of Cape Wrath. Spend time exploring the mile of golden sand and dunes, with rocky cliffs and the Am Buachaille, a giant sea stack. The large sandstone stack, Gaelic for The Herdsman, was first climbed in 1968 by Tom Patey and Ian Clough.
Behind the bay’s large sand dunes, stretches Sandwood Loch – a freshwater loch full of brown and sea trout.
This beach is remote with no road access, but is easily reached by a 4.5 mile long walk from the hamlet of Blairmore along a bleak fairly flat moorland track.
The beach is a good place to spot dolphins and other marine mammals.
Local legends include a sighting of a reclining mermaid of ravishing beauty on the rocks in the bay in 1900.
No facilities and the car park is at Blairmore and then the beach is a 4.5 mile walk.
Dogs allowed but must be kept on lead as sheep roam free.
