Machir Bay, Islay

Sandy bays are dotted all around the coastline of Islay, but the best beach is found on the isolated north-west coast. Machir Bay is a beautiful two-mile long golden bay, backed by huge white sand dunes. It’s a fabulous place for a sunset walk and is easily accessible with parking close by. The sea here has dangerous undercurrents, so swimming isn’t recommended. On the south end of the bay is a track going up the cliffs to Kilchiaran Bay, passing Dun Chroisprig, an Iron Age fort.
