Tolsta Beach - Hebrides

This south east facing beach on the eastern coast of the Isle of Lewis is generally quite sheltered. Tolsta Beach is one of three beaches on this fairly remote section of the coast. There is the much larger Traigh Mhòr and Garry beach, both of which sit around the headland.

Of the three this beach, with its small stone pier, is probably the least visited.
