"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.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
