Reluctant to write this review as I don't want this beach to become too popular! The amazing thing about going to Harris is that there is an element of lottery. We have now had too holidays here and the pattern is the same. 7 days, 1 or 2 will be awful, 3 will be average and 2 will be amazing.... More

A truly magical beach, long beach of white sand and crystal blue seas - perfect for a walk even on a stormy day!

Luskentyre (Losgaintir in the Gaelic) is a long, lovey beach. We went on a rather windy day and needed sunglasses that we didn't have, oh the views... it's a longish walk from the parking to the beach, and not easily accessible. But for a natural, unspoilt and untouched place, what else can be said?

Luskentyre [Losgaintir] lies at the end of a narrow and winding 3 mile sideroad, off the main A859 Tarbert to Leverburgh. Ample carparking space, and even a toiletblock. But when you walk onto the beach itself, be prepared to be blown away. The North Harris mountains to the north, Taransay looming out at sea, and, if you walk some way... More

Visited in November and had unseasonably warm and sunny weather. Had the whole beach to ourselves while we sat and had our picnic. Explored the vast area of dunes behind the beach also. The views are amazing and there was not a single piece of litter for miles which really made this beach unique.

The beach at Luskentyre is one of the best ever. The sand is white and glorious and the sea is a stunning colour. You'll virtually have the beach to yourselves and even if there are others on it, you can be as far away from them as you wish. It's fair to say that it's a special place.

The first time I saw this beach I could not believe it had not already been turned into a major tourist attraction. Wide expanse of white sand. Turquoise water. Gorgeous scenery all around. Mostly empty of people. We have visited in March and in June and had similar weather both times--windy, chilly, partly sunny. Nonetheless, it was well worth the... More
