We love Luskentyre, it's no surprise that it's one of the most painted and photographed places in the world as it is simply astounding in both beauty and scale. It will always be one of my most favourite places in the world. There is a carpark and loos at the end of the long windy road, and a handy burn... More

This beach is just beautiful, it has the whitest sand and crystal clear water, it is protected from the weather rolling in of the ocean by the island of Taransay so the waves are perfect for paddling. The vast beach is backed by the highest dunes, a simply stunning place to be.

Beautiful and vast white sands. Plenty of space due to the size so would not feel overcrowded. The only down side was the smell at the toilets in the parking area.

Like in the advert. If Carlsberg done beaches........ Took lots of photos but nothing gives you the experience like being there. White sand, clear blue/green water. Tranquillity. Perfect place to be. Great little gallery on the road going south where we stopped for tea and scones.

This beach is a must to visit - even if the weather is poor this beach still looks fantasic - we stayed on Scalpay and travelled to this beach on our first day. Our dog Millie thought she was in heaven - a beach all to herself but then she found the rabbit holes in the sand dunes and she... More

Probably the most amazing beach I have ever visited. Even in the rain, the white sands and blue sea take your breath away. I will definitely return.....hopefully when the sun comes out!

Beautiful, secluded beach! Lovely for a long stroll.... Takes a bit of time to get to once you've turned off the main road for it but well worth it!

You would never think that these stunning white sand beaches could be right on your doorstep, no souvenir shops, no arcade games, just stunning scenery, if your after a quiet holiday with beautiful scenery this is perfect, we also went fishing with http://www.hebrideanfishingexperience.co.uk/ and had a great time. all in all a great holiday.
