Kinlochbervie is a West Highland crofting community, with a huge fish-processing plant and modern concrete harbour from where trucks from all over Europe pick up cod and shellfish.
The local unspoilt scenery is a major drive of tourists to the area. Along a single-track road north west of the village, passed through the isolated community of Oldshoremore scattered above a stunning white-sand beach, is Blairmore from where visitors can take a 4 mile long walk to a scenic wild beach of Sandwood Bay backed by huge sand dunes and a loch. The beach is reputedly the most beautiful beach in Britain and offers nearly 1.5 miles wide pink sand flanked by cliffs. The bay is part of the Sandwood Estate which is run by the John Muir Trust.
The large fish handling and processing port and the harbour are the dominant features of the town. There are surprisingly good road links given the remote location and rugged terrain makes the town an important fishing port to the outside world.
