Sandwood Bay (Scottish Gaelic: Bàgh Seannabhad) is a natural bay in Sutherland, on the far north-west coast of mainland Scotland. It is best known for its remote 1-mile-long (1.6 km) beach and Am Buachaille, a sea stack, and lies about 5 miles (8 kilometres) south of Cape Wrath. Behind the bay's large dunes, stretches the freshwater Sandwood Loch.
Bàgh Shanabhait (Scottish Gaelic)
Though remote, and with no road access, the bay can be reached by a 4-mile (6-kilometre) path leading from the gravel car park at the hamlet of Blairmore. Sandwood Bay is part of the Sandwood Estate which is run by the John Muir Trust. The beach is considered to be one of the cleanest and most unspoilt beaches in the whole of mainland Britain.
