Scotland's top walks: Sandwood Bay, Sutherland This amazing beach in the middle of nowhere. It's right next to Cape Wrath. To think the Vikings, even the Spanish Armada sailed past here -historical landscape.
A walk in along a bleak moorland track is amply rewarded when the fabulous views of Sandwood Bay come into view, perhaps the most beautiful beach in Britain. Spend time exploring the mile of golden sand and dunes, with rocky cliffs and a giant sea stack to complete the scene. Despite its popularity, Sandwood Bay never seems busy as the beach is big enough to absorb the visitors.
