Also nearby is Smoo Cave, a giant hole in the limestone cliffs which is very much worth visiting. But be warned, according to some this is a hiding place of the devil! If beaches are more your thing than you will probably enjoy Sango Bay which has a beautiful sandy beach. More beaches can be found further to the east along the A838 towards Tongue, the next bigger village on the north coast. Also hillwalkers and mountain climbers find this place a real haven as it offers towering cliffs, rugged mountains and expansive moorlands which all provide fantastic but sometimes challenging walking trails.For those arriving by motorhome, and there are many who make this journey, Sango Sands Oasis will be their port of call. This excellent campsite has plenty of space for motorhomes with commanding views towards the rugged north coast of Scotland. A view you don’t easily forget. Although very remote, and especially in winter very lonely, visitors will find a petrol station, a few shops and a cash machine as well as accommodation and a pub. For those looking for information there’s a good Tourist Info Centre.
