When it’s washed by turquoise waves coming in from the Atlantic, many people would rank the silver beach of Tràigh Huisinish as one of the most enchanting places there is anywhere in the world. The other beaches that can also be visited on this walk would also score fairly highly so if it’s a pleasant day you will undoubtedly want to wander along the shore and search among the rock pools. Because of this natural urge, the walk has been kept deliberately short.

[A longer version of this walk that includes an ascent of Hushinish Mhor is described in detail and illustrated with Ordnance Survey map extracts in 'Walking on Harris and Lewis' by Richard Barrett, published by Cicerone Press 2010.
