About

Luskentrye is a small settlement at the end of a minor single track road that skirts the north side of Traigh Luskentyre. There is vast area of sand dunes on the north side of the bay.
Parking at the end of the road and taking a short walk onto Traigh Rosamul presents a wonderful vista of sea, sky and the north Harris mountains.

Photographers Tip

Late spring and late summer are a good time to capture a shot across the bay towards Seilebost. Low tide provides a vast area of sand bars and channels. The light here is good late evening in spring and late summer.
