Luskentyre has come on amongst the top in a list of Europe’s best beaches.


The stretching white sands in Harris ranks above beaches in holiday locations including Sardinia, the Turkish Aegean coast and Brittany.


It takes the number one spot for Scottish beaches and is also is named the second best-rated across the UK in the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards for beaches.


Luskentyre - which boasts miles of sand and stunning green-blue water and beautiful scenery, looking out to the island of Taransay - is 16th across European seaside destinations.


Alan MacKenzie, island manager at VisitScotland said, “This is another wonderful accolade for Luskentyre Beach, but its inclusion on the list of best UK beaches is not surprising.


“The spectacular scenery surrounding the beach’s pristine white sands, make it hugely popular among visitors and locals alike.


“The Outer Hebrides is a beautiful part of the world and making second place in the UK’s best beaches in the Travellers’ Choice Beaches Awards will help to further raise the profile of Luskentyre and of Harris, encouraging even more people to visit.”
