More Information...

Bosta (Bostadh) Beach is situated on Great Bernera - a small island connected by a short bridge to the north of the Isle of Lewis. Set in a valley, the beach is made up of fine, pale golden sand. Numerous islands in the bay and beyond break up much of the Atlantic swell making this much more sheltered than other north coast beaches. Bosta is also home to an Iron Age village which was only recently discovered after it emerged from the sands following a storm. Along with the well-preserved village is a replica house, complete with thatched roof, overlooking the beach.
