About

Image:Looking along the storm beach, created by debris being thrown up by the big waves that can come in off the Atlantic. The bank on the left is to try to stop these debris blocking the minor road beyond it.© Copyright Hugh Venables and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence.

The beach has white sand, made up from broken shells. The machair runs parallel to the beach and is ideal for walking. It is a haven for wildlife, such as the elusive corncrake and in the summer months the machair is peppered with an assorted variety of wildflowers, including rare orchids.
