Almost white fine sandy beach. Clean and clear water, with occasional seal spotted. Typical Hebridian sandy beach, not perhaps as long as some, but excellent nevertheless.

Very typical of many,many beaches in the outer Hebrides and it is hard to rank them. We did a circular walk starting and finishing at the ferry terminal, the first leg of which is along the beach. Very enjoyable!

This is the beach where Bonnie Prince Charlie set foot in 1745. It is the most beautiful bay setting with the clearest of blue water. Nearby is the Ferry landing to Barra. The beach is part of the walk of this part of the island...More

Eriskay 5* Must visit. Many people must be tempted to drive straight through Eriskay on their way to the Barra ferry. Well you should make time for Eriskay and walk this lovely beach where Bonnie Prince Charlie landed with a few followers, see the place...More

The beach has white sand and the clearest sea we have seen in a very long time. Such a beautiful colour. I would not want to go on the beach barefoot though as there was some broken glass.

Stunning beach with beautiful sand and turquoise water! We even braved a paddle in early April after a lovely walk up the hill!

Breathtakingly beautiful beaches carpetted in sea shells and white sands in every cove. Stunningly tranquil destination with welcoming residents. A must see for anyone looking for that special place.

There are too many beautiful beaches on Eriskay to single out one in particular. A beautiful island.

This is a good sized beach for a walk and then return to the village at the other end via the road over the hill behind. It's clean and the sea is clear and gannets were diving. Not as big as Luskentyre but well worth...More

Excellent B&B and owners couldn't have been more helpful. Great location, superb breakfast, lovely room with lots of little treats, home made scones, rocky road nibbles, wine chilled, glasses supplied and made to feel very welcome. Well worth a visit.
