Kentra Bay and The Singing Sands

  • Kentra Bay and The Singing Sands

The Singing Sands at Gortenfern on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula are famous for making a whistling sound as the wind blows or as you shuffle your feet through the dunes.  This flat walk follows a gravelled track for most of the way as it skirts around Kentra bay (an SSSI) and then through plantation to some remote and beautiful beaches at Gortenfern.  Take time at low tide to explore the isolated bays to the  North East of the main beach and marvel at the views to The Small Isles.  This is a lovely walk to a stunning beach and beyond.
