The Isle of Tiree off the west coast of Scotland has some of the most beautiful beaches that you could ever wish for, and in the month of May, mostly to yourselves. We visited a few on our visit to the island and each beach has a noticeboard which gives you information on the area.
The special feature of this beach is the Machair, the wonderful grassland, which in the summer is covered in wild flowers. We were too early for that spectular display, but the daisies and buttercups were starting to put on a show.
The beaches have white sands and beautiful blue seas, and I think on this beach we saw one other couple walking. Nancy, our little dog, had a quick walk, she was on a mission to see how many she could make us visit and did quite well really, so there are more beaches to come.
