About

The beach at Kilpheder is part of around 20 miles of stunning white shell beach which runs along the west coast of South Uist. The South Uist machair (coastal grassland) runs parrallel to the beach. Both the beach and machair are perfect for walking, with open skies and barely a soul in sight! 

The beach and machair are a haven for wildlife. You can often see otters scurring from the sand dunes, waders at the shore and in the summer months a plethora of colourful wild flowers in bloom on the machair.
