Possibly, the best beach in the whole of the UK and virtually yours alone!
Sutherland's, and possibly Scotland's very best beach is Sandwood Bay. The beach is a glorious, mile of sparkling sand that is frequently pounded by massive North Atlantic rollers. Behind, the beach is fringed by undulating dunes.
The beach is owned and managed by the John Muir Trust and so its future beauty is assured. Furthermore, there is no easy access so getting to it puts all but the most hardy.
