There is a large are of machair and sand dunes to the east of the beach providing plenty of walking. The views across to Luskentyre and Taransay are breathtaking.
A shot from the edge of the dunes towards Taransay early in the day in winter provides good lighting. Alternatively taking a shot early evening in spring or autumn towards Luskentyre, produces superb results.

Photographers Tip

Look for sand bars and ripples in the sand.
