Achmelvich Beach Colours

Uploader's Comments

Recently I did a trip to the far north west of Scotland and entered into the Highland Geopark. This beach has a facinating colour palette and I just had to capture it. The beach is located at Achmelvich (I will try to geotag it) and it is one of the most stunning beaches you will ever find anywhere in the world. The sands are silvery white and the water is a beautiful turquoise colour, it is not to be missed. Many people who drive through the Highlands of Scotland completely miss this location, when you come here, make sure that you are not one of them.
