From Aignish to Langaisgeir Mor

Point, or the Eye Peninsula, is connected to the island of Lewis by a narrow isthmus known as Am Bràighe. It is a mile long and only about 100m wide. At the eastern end of the isthmus lie Eye Church and the burial place of nineteen of the Chiefs of the Macleods of Lewis. There is also a memorial to the men who took part in the Aignish Riots of 1888.

This beach lies on the north side of the isthmus.
