From parking up there is a lovely walk to the white coral beach. The sea is clear with lots of wildlife to see. This is definitely worth a visit if you are visiting Skye.

This was our second stop of the day after Neist Point and we're very happy we made the effort. The stroll to the end of the beach is practically flat and the views are stunning. There were lots of cars in the parking area, but...More

You have to walk about a mile from the car park to get to the beaches, but this helps to preserve the quiet, remote nature of the place. I visited very early in the morning, so there was no one else around - I suspect...More

I'd seen the reviews on tripadvisor so decided to visit after going to Dunvegan Castle. You just keep driving after the castle until you get to a car park. The road between the castle and the car park is single track but it's only for...More

Good 30 minute trek each way along sometimes muddy path but worth it for the views, can be difficult to get parked.
