Traigh Iar (Sollas)

North Uist | Sollas | Beach | ★★★★

[Tràigh Iar]

Tràigh Iar is probably our pick for the finest beach on North Uist - among pretty stiff competition - and at a mile from the nearest road, it's never busy. The crescent bay forms the west side of the Àird  a' Mhòrain peninsula, with tall dunes and scrubby fields separating Tràigh Ear on the east side. The nearest place to park is next to the vast estuary of the Abhainn Ceann a' Bhaigh which has its own beach - Tràigh Bhàlaigh - but this isn't a patch on Tràigh Iar. Alternatively, park at Tràigh Ear and visit both beaches as part of a circular walk.

📌 Tràigh Iar (Sollas) ★★★★
Off minor road a mile north of Sollas, North Uist, G.R.: NF 812764 ///region.wheat.disco

Anything else? Parking at minor road end half a mile north of Malacleit, G.R.: NF 798750 ///agreed.iceberg.salary. Walk north along the beach (Tràigh Bhàlaigh) from here - Tràigh Iar begins after the coastline turns east, nearly a mile to the north.
