The machair and beaches along the west coast of Benbecula are a haven for wildlife such as ground nesting waders including the oystercatcher, lapwing, dunlin, ring plover, redshank and the snipe that return here to nest each year. Listen out also for the illusive corncrake whilst taking in the breathtaking horizon as the sun sets on Liniclate Beach.
