A brief glance over the fence at the beach it looked amazing but shouted at and told to go to the carpark (for £2 /hr). Also shouted at to put dog in vehicle (dog was on lead) so left and didn't explore further. Shame as it looked amazing but seems to have been monetised to within an inch of its space (which is understandable post nc 500 surge of visitors I guess..). Owner / employee maybe not enjoying life as a tourist destination judging by our interaction - Im sure it's an amazing place if you're a fully paid up visitor.

We travelled the NC500 recently and included a tour of the outer Hebrides also. We cam across numerous beautiful beaches along the way...but this beach by far was the most stunning! Even on a grey day, the water was a stunning blue and a group of people were enjoying a cold but beautiful swim. Single track road and be careful of the many large pot holes in the car park. Stay all day...you won't want to leave...

Achmelvich beach is a fantastic beach, where it seems you are in the Caribbean. The sand is extremely white and the ocean is as blue and clear as on the Bahamas. The only thing is that the water is a lot colder. This is a fantastic stop for a relaxed evening.

Single track road leads to this fabulous beach where you could easily spend the day the camp site next to it has a small shop and also a chip shop operating from 5pm to 8pm take the opportunity to climb the surrounding hills for some fantastic views you won't be disappointed.

Was so excited to arrive here for one night in our MH. ON arrival the young girl was friendly enough and shop looked good. Was told to park anywhere and just take any of the 5 electric hook ups. Not everyone is considerate so have to try and few spaces before we could get the one free hook up that was available. Organised pitches would be better and not a free for all. Had a few dishes from lunch so went to dish wash place and there was no hot water with the hot water tap virtually hanging off. Big signs saying "do not do dishes in the sink" in the ladies and gents as that was the only place with hot water. Avoided the shower area as it needed a good clean. No signal and no wifi so a quite night. In the morning headed again to try and do the dishes and by 9am again still not hot water for dishes. Went to reception and was told by older lady that it usually runs out about now. At 9am!! How odd. We swiftly packed and left and will not return. Beach was ok - seen nicer around NC500. Out of all the campsites we chose this was a 1 star for facilities and welcome. ps was busy enough with people who obviously dont need hot water for their dishes.

A must-visit, not far from Lochinver, perhaps one of the most beautiful beaches along the nc500. Do climb atop the dune at the end of the beach for the iconic view you see in the photo.

Stunning views, worth driving down the single track road.
Beach was clean and there is a toilet.
Limited parking though so may struggle during peak times.

Stunning!! Woweeeeee we had the best morning on this beach. We paddle boarded in the crystal clear water, the sand is whiter than white, it’s such a beauty you won’t want to leave. Definitely spend a bit of time here it’s worth it.

There are so many beautiful beaches in Scotland but some of them stood out - this is one of them. The sand is white, the sea is an amazing shade of blue, the rocks are interesting. We had a great time here, the children loved discovering the beach! Worth the stop if you are in the area.
