Corran Sands

[Corran Beach]

Corran Sands is a candidate for Jura's best beach and a good reason to explore the narrow main road beyond Craighouse. The white sand extends for a couple of miles east from the main road, split in two by the fast-flowing Corran River. Meanwhile, the machair behind the bay doubles as the island's emergency landing strip, backed by the scree-ridden domes of the Paps of Jura (on a clear day).

Name: Corran Sands ☆☆☆
Location: G.R.: NR 540710 / stall repeating walks
Anything else? Parking either just off the main road at the west end of the beach, or on the minor road to Knockrome. Best at low tide.
