Not the biggest, not the nicest.... when it comes to beaches the Western Isle is a sure fire winner. Particularly the west coast. Eriskay Beach is fine but I wouldn’t go out my way to pay it a visit.

Almost white fine sandy beach. Clean and clear water, with occasional seal spotted. Typical Hebridian sandy beach, not perhaps as long as some, but excellent nevertheless.

Eriskay 5* Must visit. Many people must be tempted to drive straight through Eriskay on their way to the Barra ferry. Well you should make time for Eriskay and walk this lovely beach where Bonnie Prince Charlie landed with a few followers, see the place...More
