Wow, what a find this was. I read about Slaggan Bay on the excellent Walk Highlands website and I knew this was one for me. A gentle three-mile walk to a hidden sandy bay … just what the Project is all about. There is enough parking on the road beyond the village of Aultbea leading up to Mellon Udrigle for a few cars but I was the only visitor on this quiet Monday morning. The walk along a simple track past a waterlily-filled loch was stunning all the way, but the real prize is the beach beyond the ruins of Slaggan which was once a crofting village with its own school. I could’ve spent all day on this wonderful beach. Truly memorable.
