Ardalanish Beach is a beautiful long stretch of white sand with views of Colonsay and the Isle of Jura, peppered with fascinating rocks which are geologically important. In summer the machair at the edge of the beach is a wonderful display of wild flowers and the rock pools are great for entertaining children. Ardalanish Beach is reached via the turnoff for Uisken near Bunessan, then following the signs for Ardalanish Weavers, which is well worth a visit. It is a pleasant short riverside walk from the car park near Ardalanish Farm to the machair and sand junes before reaching the beach. The area is rich in wildlife, all the year round, with dolphins and seals spotted off the coast and a wide variety of birdlife in the fields and overhead, including white-tailed eagles. Nearby Uisken Beach can be found by returning to the turn-off for Ardalanish and turning right.
