One word 'stunning'.The beaches of which really there are two ,one larger than the other are spectacular ,beautiful reddish sands that belong on film sets.A bit of a trail down on a single track but worth it.

This beach is stunning, the red tinge to the sands next to the blue of the water is stunning! There's a bit of a walk from the parking lot, we kept our dog on a leash until we got to the opening of the beach. This is definitely a must see!! Not very busy at all!

The scenery at Red Point is truly superb. The beach itself is glorious with its golden sand and one can walk around the headland from here and enjoy the incredibly views out over the sea and distant mountains. The full walk around the headland follows a faint footpath in places and terrain can be boggy even in summer so strong footwear and care are required. The walk is well documented in local guidebooks. Allow plenty of time even to get to red point car park as the road there is single track with passing places.

No doubt I will stand to be corrected, but by car I think this is one of the remotest beaches one can get to easily. The drive alone is spectacular and one of the highlights going off on a slight tangent from the NC500. The road there is a stunning single track road that many a time edges on the cliffs. All in the middle of nowhere. Red Point beach actually has two separate beaches one on each side of the headland and is literally at the end of the road. Just before getting there, there is a viewpoint on the right allowing you to look down onto the beach. You can get to the second beach by walking across the headland. However, when I went the weather was not favourable so it was not something I felt inclined to do. The first beach is a sandy crescent cove with indeed reddish coloured sand and little by means of rocks on the beach. It’s a very liberating feeling being so secluded and surrounded by such a unique spot. Well worth the drive. Also take note of the functioning Royal Mail letterbox just before Red Point. It’s on the left embedded into the rocks!

Visited here on a recommendation. Fantastic views to various Scottish islands from here (weather permitting - we were lucky!)
