This is a walk in one of the remotest areas of Scotland and the most westerly part of mainland Britain. The route is easy to follow and offers stunning views of the islands of Rhum, Eigg, Muck and in clear weather, Skye, before descending to the white sandy bay of Camas an Lighe. The name 'Singing Sands' comes from the squeaky sound that the fine white sand makes as it is walked on. The beaches here are only accessible on foot or by bike, therefore are usually very quiet. If the tide is out then it's possible to explore the bays and inlets along the coast before returning by the same route. In order to take advantage of the spectacular coastal views the walk is best done on a clear day. The middle section of the walk can be a bit boggy in wet weather.
