o the North West the beautiful Machir Bay can be found, also referred to as Kilchoman Beach or Machrie Beach. This bay is easily accessible and there is parking close by. Visitors find almost two kilometres of beautiful sandy beach, a great bay to watch sunsets and a fabulous place for a walk. Bathing can be dangerous because of the strong currents and is therefore not recommended. On the south end of the bay is a track going up the cliffs to Kilchiaran Bay, passing Dun Chroisprig, an Iron Age fort, and Grannies Rock.
