Sango Bay, Durness, Scotland

We stopped for lunch at a little remote restaurant near Durness that had great food. Afterward I discovered what would turn out to be one of my favorite places in Scotland--Sango Bay. This is an award winning beach, and it's easy to see why. I love, love, LOVE this beach. It's the most beautiful beach I've seen, ever. The photos don't really do it justice.

I don't know why this little spot grabbed me and wouldn't let go. Hardly anyone else from our tour even saw it, much less walked on it. The rocks jutting up out of the sand and sea here are spectacular. Some are black and some are pink (granite or sandstone?) It was too cold here to swim or lie in the sun or any of the various other beach activities. And of course it was cloudy. This beach faces north, or slightly north east because it's on the north coast of Scotland. The ocean is the Atlantic. If I'd had time, I would've sat out here on one of these rocks all day.

I created a "movie" with music and also uploaded a series of photos so you can see them large if you want. Click below for your preference. In the movie, you'll see a house upon the cliff. That's where I want to move!
