The flat tidal island of Baleshare is connected to the the rest of North Uist by a causeway. A handy picnic signpost points drivers to a small car park behind a fantastic beach that stretches for miles, looking out to the wild Atlantic with only the tiny Monarch Islands between the beach and the coast of Canada. I loved this beach and enjoyed a walk for a few miles along the shore as the evening sun went down. Apart from a family paddling in the sea and a lone dog-walker, there was no-one else around.
