There are numerous golden, sandy beaches within easy reach of your Lochinver accommodation. The nearest one is about three miles away at the picturesque, crofting township of Achmelvich. There is a good car parking area within a few minutes walking distance of the sands. This beach is very popular and attracts lots of visitors, but if you like some solitude on your beach, then walk north over the hill for a short distance and you will come to a small, but beautiful, secluded, strip of golden sand, not yet discovered by many.
Drive about 6 miles north, and you will arrive at the peaceful township of Clachtoll, where another beautiful beach is located. Continue some two miles ahead and the pretty Clashnessie Bay comes into view. One more amazing, golden, sandy, beach, right by the roadside. Choose your parking spot and enjoy the freedom.
Safe swimming is what it's all about at those super, sandy bays, but please exercise proper care and get the best from it.
