Achmelvich lies just three miles north west of Lochinver. The single track road that takes you there, and especially the latter portion of the track are typical of highland B roads. One in one out and hope and pray you don’t meet a caravan on route.
Once you have made it you reach a stunning beach of white sand, a collection of nooks and crannies that make up the headland and little beaches tucked within. Take lunch with you or visit the Lochinver Pie shop before you leave as there are no facilities here.
