Coast - Sandy Beaches & dramatic Cliffs

The nort-west coastline is a wonderful mix of beaches and rocky cliffs. The Stoer Peninuslar in north Assynt includes the unspoilt sands of Achmelvich, Clachtoll & Clashnessie beaches. Beyond Stoer lighthouse there is a lovely walk out to Stoer Point and the spectacular Old Man of Stoer sea stack.

Further south, the coast from Lochinver towards Achiltibuie includes many tiny inlets, bays and islands. A huge sandy beach at Achnahaird enjoys the Assynt mountains as a wonderful backdrop. The nearby cliffs at Reiff point are very popular with rock climbers

To the north, Sandwood Bay has one of the largest (and most remote) beaches of the west coast. Now owned by the John Muir Trust a walk to the bay is rewarded with great views of the beach, sea stacks and surrounding cliffs. The beach is often nearly deserted!
