To the north of the magnificent Tràigh Thorosdail (The Maze) is a jutting headland called Rubha Chraiginis. Beyond that, heading north is Hough Bay, another mile-long westerly-facing beach but less sandy than its neighbour and much more rocky. A long rough track leads to the beach from the village of Hough, where I was surprised to find a small car behind the dunes (having hardly seen anyone so far on any of the day’s six previous beaches!).  The couple walking their dog soon left, so I trudged along the shore for a while and past a rusty digger that had been abandoned many years ago.
