    This dramatic gently sloping beach with its cliffs of pink rock is only a short walk from the car park on the A838. The beach was once known as Traigh Alt Chailgeag, "The beach of the burn of bereavement and death" which tells the story of a lady who died after falling in the burn and was found on the beach. The beach has spectacular views of the island of Eilean Hoan, the burial island, which is now a nature reserve. Sir Walter Scot, the famous novelist visited Ceannabeine in 1814.The historic harbour of Rispond, built in 1788, is a short walk over the hill from the beach.
