I discovered the beach at Camusdarach via a friend who was an extra in the film, Local Hero. I'm not sure if it was the magical film or the coverage of the beach that did it for me, but around the mid 80s I set about finding the place. I've been coming back ever since.

I've been visiting this beach since I was child and it never fails to delight and it doesn't matter what the weather is like. Beautiful soft white sand and if the tide is out you can venture over the abundance of little islands to explore.

Quiet, secluded and amazing. Reaffirmed my belief in natures ability to calm the spirit. A short walk from a hidden car park so ask a local where the beach is.

We found this walk in the pocket walks series published by Hallewell. It is, of course, famous for being the beach in "local Hero'. the views out to Skye and the "Small Isles" of Rum and Eigg are spectacular, and the white sands and rocky outcrops make a for a lovely and interesting walk.

Well worth a visit with crystal clear seas and beautiful sand. Fantastic views over the Small Isles and plenty of wee nooks and crannies to explore.
