Kinlochbervie Caribbean

A few kilometres to the north of Kinlochbervie (which is itself north of pretty much everywhere in the British Isles) is the stunning beach of Oldshoremore.

A short walk from a small car-park leads over the dunes to reveal this view. The beach is about a kilometre long, and there's another, smaller beach just visible around the headland. Here there are no ice cream vans, hotels or beach "facilities"; only a small toilet block at the car park.

This photograph was taken on a sunny June weekend. We shared this beautiful beach with just four other people during the afternoon. The white sand sets off the aquamarine of the water to perfection, water which is absolutely crystal clear.

Just like the Caribbean?

No - this is much, much better
