Tolsta - Dog Friendly Beach in Tolsta Head, Western Isles


Tolsta is a relatively large Hebridean village and is quite remote, located 14 miles north of Stornoway.

Facing east across The Minch towards the Scottish mainland, the main beach is reasonably sheltered and popular with surfers.

It is the largest beach on Lewis, truly spectacular.

There are invigorating coastal walks here too and the neighbouring Garry beach, where I also filmed, is exquisite, a real jewel.

You can head south from Tolsta Head, down to Traigh Mhor (big beach) car park, or north, all the way up to Port Ness.

Highly recommended.
