  • Interesting church yard as well. The beach was lovely and worth the walk. Easy to get to and easy to park.

  • Loved this little beach near Cape Wrath. Great views close parking. One of the favourite bits of my trip.
  • It was a tad breezy when we walked over to Balnakeil. It's a very popular place as there was plenty of people around. Definitely worth a visit
