Very peaceful and with an interesting burial ground adjacent. Probably good walking but we ran out of time.

Stayed at the campsite it's wonderful and an ideal base to tour the area. Canoe the bay, or walk the beach. Beyond the graveyard is a fissure containing the oldest rocks on earth the Lewisian Gneiss. Lovely place to visit, great local shop to stock...More
