Seilebost is a magical beach in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Located at the south of the Isle of Harris, it’s surrounded by dramatic scenery, including incredible mountain views.
On a sunny day, it can feel like being on a tropical island, and you’ll probably have the place to yourself too, but any visitor to the Outer Hebrides knows to expect the weather to be changeable. I found this to add to the charm of being there, though, making a walk along the beach a fantastic experience, as I watched the weather systems travel up the coast.
There is a fantastic walk that I really like near here. It starts from Borve, another beach that's a little further down the coast, and climbs the hill behind the sands and leads you to one of the island’s many standing stones, which affords magnificent views of the mountains.
