I can never get enough of the fantastic white sand beaches of north and west Scotland. This is a short drive from Durness but is well worth it as it rates with the best in terms of scale and beauty - wild and wonderful

Near white sand, turquoise waters, grassy dunes, almost empty a handful of reasons to see it and bathe in its waters!

Should be in Tounge; about 15 miles away, there are B&B's in Durness and there are also caravans; I dont have any details though; I would do a search though; its a truly beautiful part of the country
