- The Ross
Kilvickeon Beach is another outstanding beach with enough of interest to spend a full day there, especially for families. The wide stretch of sand is split by a tidal island, Garbh Eilean, and there are lots of rock pools and hills covered in wild flowers. On the path to the beach is the ancient Kilvickeon Chapel and Cemetery, well worth a visit in itself. Getting to the beach requires a drive from the turnoff from the main road just north of Bunessan, passing pretty Loch Assapol. The last part of the road is very rough so take care; there is a small parking at the end. It is a short walk across farmland, to the beach with the view opening out to see the beautiful coastline and expansive views out to Jura and Islay and an Iron Age Fort, Dun a Gheard, to the west of the beach.
