Ashaig Beach

Just a few minutes’ walk from Oystercatchers is Ashaig Beach (Gaelic Aiseag), a beautiful expanse of sand and shallow water on the edge of Breakish, where the tidal inlet joins the sea.

It can be reached from the Commitee Road by crossing the cattle bridge into Ashaig and climbing over the stile at the bottom of the track leading down to the shore. You can also reach Ashaig by walking along Breakish shore to the East of the cottage.

Please note: Ashaig beach is very wide and flat, and some parts are cut off when the tide comes in, so if you’re not careful you might need to wade back to dry land.
