Walking towards a white beach

I'm walking towards a snow white beach on a sunny day in warm weather on the Isle of Skye. It doesn't get better for a city dweller than that. Worth every step.

The beach has barely any coral and is kind of plain. It's over a mile to walk there through cow paddocks. If you are keen to drive on windy narrow roads at night then apparently the sunset is amazing. the best bit about the beach though is the drive there. Pull over in the bays to have a great view...

Just a lovely spot. The sea looks like you are abroad its so clear around the white coral. Good views and just a really pleasant walk especially in May when the light is so wonderful and less likely for a midgey attack.

Not much parking here, if you get parked it's a half hour walk along a reasonable path to the coral beaches. They are small and very pretty in the sunshine as they are very white. Dogs must be kept on a lead as there are sheep everywhere. Good for an hour or too, maybe longer if the weather is good.... More

Car park easy to find as it's at the end of the road. Track to follow well laid out . If you have a dog be aware there are cows in the the vicinity. Quite a windy little track , but worthwhile doing . You will be glad you went. On the way to car park you should see quite... More

The walk from the car park has to be longer than is stated on the board but it is quite a nice walk and its fairly flat. We were rewarded with an impromptu seal show as a whole group of them frolicked in the wayer im front of us! The beach itself is beautiful.

We parked in the designated car park, put on our walking boots and were on our way!. The walk is very pretty with views of the loch, the surrounding hills and mountains and the Outer Hebrides further out to sea. As we walked we watched seven or eight seals who just bobbed around looking back at us. We came to... More

There is free parking but the beach is very popular, so you may have trouble squeezing in. The beach is then half an hours walk away but well worth it. The backdrop is a small climbable hill.

The drive to coral beach is down a single track road, with a somewhat undersized parking area at the entrance to the attraction. Which leads to another point, the entrance to the attraction is about a mile or so away from the beach, and with many attractions in Scotland you will pass through a cattle gate to keep the cows...

Visited this beach after Dunvegan. Turquoise water; wonderful light; and white coral sand were amazing. Our dog enjoyed the walk and sea.
