Beautiful Beaches
Scribe on the shore
by Jan Sutch Pickard

The waves roll
toward the shore –
line by line

a flock of small birds
wheels dark above,
changes direction

with a shimmer of white
and lands
in a different
on each page

There are a number of beautiful, quiet beaches within easy reach of Staffa House. Whether you like to stroll across empty expanses of clean, white sand, to explore in rock pools, to watch for wading birds and seals, or to venture for a swim, you’ll be rewarded with a sense of peace and remoteness, a real ‘away-from-it all’ experience. If the weather forecast is good, ask us for a Staffa House packed lunch to take with you and the day’s your own to spend however you like, on a beach, somewhere, with the sound of the waves and the call of the birds as your companions….
