Achmelvich in Summer


The beaches of Achmelvich are 3 miles north of Lochinver and are known for their perfect white sands and incredible turquoise waters. The colours are vivid even in dull weather, but on a sunny day the beach rivals any in the Caribbean and the cliffs are full of wild flowers. This was a hot day in July 2010. The large pastel painting shows “Vesties'” or the “hidden” beach and is looking south. Although there is a popular camp site on the main beach at Achmelvich, I have chosen not to show it as I prefer to show the area’s untouched, solitary side.
