- The Ross
The Bay at the Back of the Ocean (Camas Cuil an t-Saimh) is a west facing, beautiful curve of sandy beach, fringed with wild-flower machair. Across the dark blue sea is Canada. Around the edge of the bay are piles of multi-coloured pebbles, rounded by the pounding of the waves. At low tide, the rocky part of the beach is ideal for rock pooling but take care as birds may be nesting here on the beach. Watch out for the spout of water from the Spouting Cave on the far side of the headland, when there are high winds and a big sea swell. It is a mile or so the reach the bay from the ferry, take a left turn from the pier and follow the road as it turns right up the hill. The first view of the beach can be seen from the gate at the golf course; which is also common grazing for sheep and cows.
