Oldshoremore Beach

One of the most beautiful beaches in Sutherland, Oldshoremore was formed from eroded sandstone and seashells. Oldshoremore beach has golden sand surrounded by a barren landscape and sand dunes.

Known locally as Am Meallan, Oldshoremore Beach is a spectacular, narrow beach with clean white sand. A rocky peninsula of land known as Eilean na h-Aiteig separates this beach from its neighbour, Polin Beach. There is a small parking area and a narrow footpath along the rocky coastline. With rocky outcrops and vast, clear blue sea, the beach is a stunning and tranquil spot.

A beautiful quiet beach, well off the beaten track, it is linked to two other smaller beaches. The machair here is well known for its special wildflowers. The small car park and campsite is signposted from the minor road beyond Kinlochbervie.

Oldshoremore (Gaelic: Àisir Mòr, 'large pasage') is a scattered crofting hamlet in the Eddrachillis parish of Sutherland, Scotland. It incorporates around twenty houses, though several of these are holiday homes.
