Near Tolsta on the East coast on the Isle of Lewis is Garry Beach, or Traigh Ghearadha – another stunning beach, filled with Lewisian Gneiss stacks.
It is only a short walk from the parking area down to the beach and to all of the stacks – it is also the start of the Tolsta Heritage track to Ness, a hike which I still have on my to-do list for next time.
On another pretty empty beach, beside me, there was just a family having fun in the waves.
A small rocky promontory separates Garry beach from Traigh Mhòr – they are so close together but still feel pretty different. Garry beach was much more enclosed and all the stacks and caves made it extra special for me.
Just be careful, a lot of these will be surrounded by water when it is high tide.
