Soft white sand and clear seas

Assynt Beaches

Assynt has some glorious beaches which rival the Caribbean with their soft white sand, azure seas and gentle slope underfoot for safe swimming. It is not unusual to see dolphins frolicking in the bay, and with the main ocean current coming from the Gulf of Mexico, the water is a wee bit warmer than you might imagine.

During the quiet months, a walk along the beach on a fresh, windy day is guaranteed to soothe the soul and make you feel alive. On the very edge of Scotland, with hardly another soul around, modern civilisation and all the stresses that come with it, are soon forgotten.

We particularly love the narrow coast road from Lochinver to Kylesku, that twists and winds along the varied coastline of cliffs and clean sandy beaches.
