Balnakeil Bay Beach
Balnakeil Bay, white sandy beach is wide and backed by a large area of tall sand dunes covered in marram grass. To the north is Faraid Head, home to military installations connected with the naval gunnery ranges towards Cape Wrath. The walk to the end of Faraid Head and back is a magnificent one.
This is definitely a beach for those looking for unspoilt beauty at a cost of no facilities.
As you return to Durness from Balnakeil Bay you have the old military buildings that have for many years housed the Balnakeil Craft Village. The village is home and workplace for a number of artists and craftspeople and has shops and food outlets.
We have no current information on dog restrictions for Balnakeil Bay Beach.
