I know this is a little over processed, but it was a bit bleak otherwise. This is Achmelvich beach, here.
I didn't realise until I got there, but this was the second time I'd been on this beach, the first time being in August a couple of years ago when I drove all around the north west coast. When I was there that time, there were people swimming; this time, in December, there were not. It was freezing. Gorgeous place though. For prettiness, you have to go a long way to beat the beaches up that way.
