“One of Scotland's finest viewpoints”
Review of Gruinard Bay

Gruinard Bay
Ranked #5 of 19 things to do in Gairloch
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 May 2014

In half decent weather, the view across Gruinard Bay to the mountains of Wester Ross is simply stunning.In my opinion, one of Scotland's best.This really sums up the North West Highlands.The Lewisian Gneiss rock, the white sand beaches and turquoise bays.Coming from Gairloch, once you've admired this superb landscape from the road's high point, drop down to the car park beside the beach and enjoy it a bit more. Actually the best beach is the next cove,accessible if you walk up the road from the car park and then drop down along a tiny path to a stunning hidden cove.Or, if the tide's out, you could walk to it from the main beach.It really is worth an hour or so on a fine day - more if you make it a picnic lunch spot.Scotland has many places I'd describe as little slices of paradise and this is one of them.

Thank Scotlandmac
