About

The beach has white sand, made up from broken shells. The machair runs parallel to the beach and is ideal for walking. It is a haven for wildlife, such as the elusive corncrake and in the summer months the machair is peppered with an assorted variety of wildflowers, including rare orchids. The machair at Askernish is also where the famous 18 hole golf course at Askenish is, so watch out for golfers!!
