Luskentyre Beach In Top 10

Date published: 23 February 2015

Isle of Harris' Luskentyre named in UK's top ten beaches in Travellers' Choice Awards

The most notable winner for Scotland this year is the Isle of Harris’ Luskentyre, which was revealed as the eighth best rated beach in the UK.

One TripAdvisor reviewer who recently visited said, “The beach at Luskentyre is one of the best ever. The sand is white and glorious and the sea is a stunning colour. You'll virtually have the beach to yourselves and even if there are others on it, you can be as far away from them as you wish. It's fair to say that it's a special place.”

Nairn Beach took thirteenth place while Durness Beach and Calgary Bay off the Isle of Mull came in at 19th and 20th respectively. Arisaig’s Camusdarach Beach and Kiloran Beach off the Isle of Colonsay placed 24th and 25threspectively.


Daniel Steel, Chief Executive of Sail Scotland commented: 

“This is great recognition for Luskenstyre Beach and deservedly so as our country truly has an incredible coastline and so many beautiful beaches to offer. Seeing Luskentyre awarded another accolade comes as no real surprise though. It has stunning white sands, crystal clear waters, and spectacular surrounding scenery. The Outer Hebrides is a beautiful part of the world and one that always features prominently in Sail Scotland’s marketing campaigns. This Travellers’ Choice Award will help to further raise the profile of Harris, encouraging even more sailors to visit this year.”
