Holiday at Losgaintir/Luskentyre Beach, Harris

Luskentyre Beach Losgaintir

TripAdvisor has named Luskentyre Beach as one of UK's best beaches. Visitors remark that it feels like a Caribbean beach with its golden sands, clear as crystal water.  

This beach is located on the Isle of Harris, Outer Hebrides and therefore the waters will feel cool to your toes.

The Hebrides is an archipelago in the north west of the UK and west of Scotland. These are divided into the inner Hebrides, closer to the mainland and the outer Hebrides which are further away.

The Hebrides as a whole are remote and sparsely populated, mostly be fishing communities. Today, places like Skye (Inner Hebrides) are primarily a tourist destination.

The isle of Harris is known for its spectacular yet desolate landscape providing a peaceful retreat. There's amazing amount of wildlife to watch - wild ponies, dolphins, otters, seals, eagles and more are all part of this beautiful landscape.

    Handy Tips

    With a small local population, the Hebridean islands have few convenience stores and no fast food chains. So if you are from the cities, this can be quite a change! Plan to enjoy local restaurants or buy groceries from local convenience stores.  

    The price of the remoteness of these islands is that you may find that meals, accommodation ​are expensive particularly in the peak tourist season.
