Beach Bridge – Ross of Mull
Traigh Nam Beach (Sandy Beach) is located on the north coast of the Ross of Mull between Pennyghael to the east and Bunessan to the west off the A849 Fionnphort road.
The ‘Beach Bridge’ name comes from the original bridge across the Beach River which runs from Gleann Airigh Searsain into Camas nan Cuile (Bay in the Corner) on the north coast of the Ross. A newer bridge now stands across the river north of the original which is still there in very good condition.
The bay can be accessed via a very low barrier to a sheltered open area. The barrier was erected some years ago, presumably to prevent caravans and large vehicles accessing the ground behind the beach.
If you have a roof box or drive a larger four wheel drive vehicle you will probably not be able to get under the barrier.
The bay is overlooked by Eilean Nan Caorach (Island of the Sheep).
This is a very pretty and quiet spot with wild flowers everywhere in the summer and a very good chance of seeing otters and seals.
