This is a delightful white shell beach on the Isle of Lewis, and you can access it on the road that leads to the Butt of Lewis in Ness. Because of it's proximity to the lighthouse and lack of roads, all the materials for the construction (between 1859 and 1862) were brought by ship and landed in here.  The port continued to play an important role in bringing supplies to the lighthouse until the sixties Supplies and fuel were brought in small cargo vessels and were unloaded in Port Stoth by crane. The concrete base still remains, as does the brick storage building.

a good place to spot seals. The rocks are good fishing spots 

It is relatively sheltered and perfect for sunrise and/or sunset swim, a walk with the dog and spotting seals! The rocks are also good for fishing.
