Locality
“Luskentyre is perhaps the most famous of the beaches on Lewis and Harris, and for good reason. This spectacular expanse of white sands is easily one of the best beaches in northern Europe, and is well worth a visit (whatever the weather!). As is typical with the beaches of Lewis and Harris, it's not unusual to find yourself as one of only a handful of visitors.”
