For my last day on Islay, my plan was to visit the beaches along the Atlantic west coast of the island, starting at the bottom of the Rhinns of Islay peninsula and working my way up the single track road to the far north. First stop was lovely Currie Sands. I parked in the small port village of Portnahaven and walked the mile or so to this quaint sandy beach, framed at each end by high rocky slopes to create a lovely, homely bay. The sound of the water breaking on the sands on this quiet Monday morning was so peaceful. A wonderful spot.
