Machair at Sanna Bay, Ardnamurchan Peninsula

The machair, a fragile fertile pasture with high shell content, is found on the west coast of the Highlands and Islands, especially in the Outer Hebrides. Often subject to local cultivation or grazing, the machair is vulnerable to rising sea levels and the North Atlantic storms. This photograph shows the eroding edge of the machair at Sanna Bay, on the northwest coast of the Ardnamurchan Peninsula.
