A lovely straight forward hike to a stunning beach. plenty of parking near the start with public toilets available. the path was excellent with ice in places due to the time of year but nothing too arduous. stunning views of the surrounding white peaked mountains. once the beach is in view it's a case of losing the trail a bit but it's clear where you're going. spent time on the beach which is about a mile wide which has a view of an impressive sea stack. we then decided to head back the way we came rather than continue on the circular as shown on the map. overall a great addition to the many hikes we've undertaken in Scotland.
