An Aird Peninsula. Ardvasar, Royaume-Uni

Pack a picnic and spend the day at the An Aird peninsula. There are two beaches (either side of the isthmus) and the peninsula, where you'll find the remains of an ancient fort, Dunan an Aisilidh, as well as cliffs, natural bridges, caves, a sea stack and even a blow hole. Take the left-hand turn for Balmeanach off the Braes road and look out for the parking spot. The path down to the shore starts near the post box. It crosses a flat boggy area and then descends steeply to the shore where you will find a pebbly beach; the far end is sandy. Enjoy spectacular views towards Ben Tianavaig and across the Sound of Raasay and keep an eye out for seals, shags nesting on the cliffs and other wildlife as you explore.
