“Fine on a nice day”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

As beaches go Talisker Beach is nothing special. Don't expect golden sands. It is very rocky with a mixture off sand and rocks. Bit of a hike from where you have to park your car . Ok if the weather is decent.

“A bit of a let down”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

I was rather disappointed with the beach. The sand and rocks are greyish black and you have to pick your way through the sheep droppings before spreading out your picnic rug. I know I'm a spoilt city-dweller and like everything pristine, but the sky was grey, it was cold and windy and it wasn't an easy walk to get there. Having said that, the place was peacefully deserted and we did enjoy watching the rolling waves. Bet it looks better in the sunshine, like a lot of things.

“Highlight of our Skye Trip!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

The beach visit is not for the faint hearted. You have to leave your car at Talisker House and walk. It is a good 20 minute plus walk to get to the beach then a difficult walk over large stones to get to the beach. The sand is black and white which when mixed makes very unusual patterns. We spent an afternoon with the boys enjoying the cold water. The views leading up to the beach are really breathtaking. When we visited it only had 2 more families which added to the whole experience. If you are looking for something out of the way and memorable....head here and be prepared to be wowed! I will be back. Not for disabled visitors or those not very steady on their feet.

“Breath taking views ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

We decided to take a visit to talisker bay to judge it for ourselves and so glad we did , we spent a whole morning enjoying the views and watching 2 teenagers and 1 dog totally enjoying themselves in the crystal clear water , the sand is the most amazing colour when the tide is turning back out , we were even blessed with glorious sun shine , definatly going to return here X
