After the thrills of Traigh Gheal, it was nice to have just a gentle stroll past Knockvologan Farm, where I had parked earlier that morning, down to the acres of spotless sand known collectively as Knockvologan Beach. In truth, it’s a series of incredible open beaches littered with hidden coves, rock pools and giant rock stacks. Opposite is the tidal island of Erraid, with its own famous beach known as David Balfour’s Bay, but although the tide was out I decided to keep this little treat for another time and instead explore the expansive Knockvologan Beach itself, as well as its surrounding hills. The views, from all angles, were just ridiculously amazing.
