The Isle of Skye is known for it's rugged landscape and stunning mountain range, not so much for its beautiful beaches. The beaches on the Isle of Skye are so diverse, there are rocky beaches, black sand beaches and even golden sand beaches paired with the clearest blue water.
Achmelvich Bay is one of the most beautiful beaches in Scotland and one of the most popular beaches on the NC500.
If there is one reason that the North Coast 500 attracts so many people every year it's to visit the pristine white sandy beaches around the coast. The north and west coast of Scotland especially have some of the best beaches you will find in the whole of Scotland.
