Information on the village of Lochinver in Scotland.
Name comes from "Clach" - a rock or stone and "toll" - a hole. Probably refers to the Split Rock. (Gaelic)
This expanse of sand dunes, (NC 040272), much of which is used as a caravan and camping site, is the place where you will find the Memorial to Rev Norman McLeod.
Nearby is the Salmon Netting Station which is now a mini-museum to that occupation - The Bothy.
There is a clean and sheltered bay, with clear turquoise water, which is excellent for picnicking and beach fun.
Public toilets are open during the summer months, and the local Ranger Service have an Information Hut on site, from which many of their activities take place.
Scrambling along the coast, going South, will bring you to the Split Rock.
