At the end of the beautiful drive from Ullapool to Durness is the GORGEOUS white sandy Durness Beach! Well worth the approximately 70 mile drive. We ate lunch at the Oasis Restaurant which was more than disappointing. The location is great, the service fine but terrible food. Enough about that, we ate as fast as we could and headed straight for the beach.

No doubt the visit to Durness Beach was a highlight of our trip. After all, we are “Displaced Beachbums” always on the lookout for a sandy beach where we can dip our toes in. And despite the cold, we dipped away!
