Red Point Sands, Isles of Rona and Skye, Port Henderson

This postcard shows Red Point Sands, Isles of Rona and Skye, Port Henderson.

Red Point is a low promontory where the coastline turns from Loch Gairloch in to Loch Torridon. The beach is of fine reddish sand backed by dunes. From the point there are magnificent panoramic views of the Isle of Skye and the island of Rona.

A single track road runs along the southern shore of Loch Gairloch ending at the small scattered settlement of Redpoint which overlooks the beach. Port Henderson is another small settlement on this remote road.
