Walk: Nosing around Niosaboist

Harris | Horgabost | Short walk | ★★★★

[Tràigh Iar]

This perfect little circuit explores Àird Niosaboist: a minor headland framed by two beautiful beaches and crowned by an impressive standing stone, Clach Mhic Leòid (Macleod's stone). Tràigh Iar and Tràigh Niosaboist are some of the most popular beaches on Harris, but as you can see from the photo above (taken on bank holiday weekend) that doesn't exactly mean crowds...
