Traigh Mhor beach translates in English to ‘Big Beach’ Gaelic is quite a straightforward language when it comes to naming things.
Some exampes are:
Conic Hill: Cnoc Còinnich – ‘mossy hill’
Creachan Mòr: An Creachann Mòr – ‘the great bare rocky hilltop’
Meall Reamhar: – ‘hill of large circumference’
I wasn’t sure how long a length of the beach would be but but I fancied trying to do as many lengths of it as possible until I got bored. Although if I got bored of a beach with amazing views then that means I am bored with life itself.
I manged 4 laps which was about 15 miles. I started off slow as I was tired from a long run the previous day. Thankfully, I felt better as the run progressed. Lap one was awful but lap four was great.
The tide was in when I started but out on the last lap which meant I could visit the caves at the end of the beach. They are only accessible at low tide.
It is a beutiful beach. if you are tired of beaches then you are tired of life!
There is a car park next to the beach. It is normally quiet but occasionally camper vans use it as a camping spot. The road down to the car park is very steep.
There are male and female toilets
There is nothing close by. Bring your own snacks.
Yes – no sheep or animals spotted on route.
