Sitting proudly at either end of the mile-long Traigh Mhor at Tolsta, and separated by headlands, are the fine beaches of Traigh Ghearadha (Garry Beach) and Tràigh Ghioradail. Parking at the end of a small road from North Tolsta village, it’s a steep walk down an access track to this amazing sheltered beach notable for its lush green, folded grassy cliffs. A small pier sits at one end of the beach, built in 1894 for fishermen to launch their boats from (but apparently built in the wrong place and hardly used!).  After a walk along the atmospheric beach, I climbed up onto the cliffs to look in awe at the vibrant colours, sparkling even on this dreary day.
