The beach is situated on the southern outskirts of the village of Gairloch, with free parking available beside the golf course.
Nestling on a bay overlooking the Minch and surrounded by mountains and moorland, Gairloch Beach is a spectacular and secluded beach. A safe, sheltered sandy beach with a backdrop of dunes, Gairloch is popular with families. Take in stunning views of the nearby islands from the sandy shore, not to mention awe-inspiring Scottish sunsets from its westerly position. This wide stretch of beach is practically untouched by travellers, and the sand’s smoothness is offset by the rugged backdrop of wild heather and jagged rocks.
