Achmelvich Bay

Achmelvich (Gaelic: Achadh Mhealbhaich) is a settlement situated in the Highland region of Scotland. The name comes from the Gaelic "Achadh" - a plain or meadow and "mealvaich" - sandy dunes [1]. (An unsurprising name as the beach is dominated by sandy dunes and machair.)

Achmelvich lies three miles north west of Lochinver, and 40 miles north of Ullapool, in the north west of the Scotland, accessed by single track road which leads from the B869 coastal tourist route. Despite the difficult road, the area is popular with tourists.
