Whilst much of the focus on the north end of Barra is the airport beach (Traigh Mhor), a short walk over the road to the west coast lies Traigh Eais, a spectacular mile-long stretch of beach with surrounding hills and some of the highest sand dunes you’ll ever see. Fully exposed to the Atlantic, this is surf city when the waves are up, but today it was calm and peaceful. This beach was one of the locations for the film Whisky Galore. ┬áThis is definitely one to return to on another day as I’d like to walk the full length of the beach and explore the hills around.
