Bostadh Beach

Bostadh Beach lies at the north west corner of Great Bernera. Great Bernera is accessed nowadays across a bridge and the route is down the B8059.

An added attraction to the beach is a replica Iron age house which lies at the head of the beach. There is a guide available to show people round on some days in the summer.

An iron age village was discovered beneath the dunes at the head of the beach so the replica house was built whilst the archaeologists let the sand re-cover the real jelly baby houses (iron age houses to protect them).

There is an old restored Mill on Great Bernera but it is not at Bostadh but near the village of Breaclete.
