Mellon Udrigle is a stunning white sandy beach offering unparallel views of some of the spectacular Highland mountains.Backed by dunes and framed by rocky promontories, Mellon Udrigle is one of the most attractive pieces of coastline in Wester Ross. With clear, turquoise water and clean white sand, the beach is spectacular in itself without its stunning location. However what makes the beach really special is a distant mountain vista possibly unequalled from any low level viewpoint in Scotland. To the north east the views include the distinctive profile of Suilven, near Lochinver, taking in the mountains of Coigach, including a glimpse of the top of Stac Pollaidh. To the south east the views conclude with a glimpse of An Teallach before becoming lost in the more local humps and bumps of the peninsula you are standing on between Gruinard Bay and Loch Ewe.At Mellon Udrigle the beach and bay is popular for sailing, canoeing and wind surfing in Gruinard Bay and further away around the Summer Isles near Ullapool. Other recreational activities including sea angling from small boats, usually powered with outboard engines and launched from the beach.
