This truly stunning part of North Uist in the Outer Hebrides is the northern most section of the island. The walk offers outstanding views in a short space of time and is best enjoyed on a fine day when the tide is out or receding as the sands here are vast. This is also a walk that should not be rushed. Enjoy the solitude and views.

Please maintain social distancing - keep at least 2 metres away from other walkers. This applies in England. Wales & Scotland have different and stricter rules which do not allow walking away from home.
