About

The famous Poll a Charra (Polachar Standing Stone) is situated on the shore here.
There are good views here looking south over the Sound of Barra. Early morning in spring or autumn provides the best lighting.

Photographers Tip

Nice rounded stones on this beach lit by side lighting add greatly to the composition of images taken here.
