"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Singing Sands Beach

Facing across the bay to Port Ellen on the Isle of Islay. Undeveloped, quiet and characterised by clean white sands and spectacular black volcanic rocks. If you want to get a bit more active, a short drive away across the Oa peninsula finds the great sweep of Laggan Sands, ideal for windsurfing, walking and jogging.
