Achmelvich Bay

This is a beautiful, natural, west coast bay with a large expanse of silvery white sands and beautiful clear azure waters. It offers a quiet sheltered retreat, where on a clear day you can see Suilven behind the beach. There is a caravan park close by and free parking is available. This is a good beach for canoeing, sailing and there are wonderful walks in the Assynt.

Getting there

Achmelvich beach is on a minor road sign posted to Achmelvich. Take the B869 about 1/2 a mile from the village of Lochinver on the A83.
