If Lewis and Harris in the Outer Hebrides have been named as the top island in Europe, and in the top five in the world - then this is my nomination for the best beach in Europe.
Uig Beach is best known as the site where the Lewis Chessmen were found. In 1831, a local crofter discovered a buried hoard of chess pieces, uncovered following a storm. The chessmen are now in the Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh with an overseas exhibit in the British Museum in London, England, and replicas in the Uig Heritage Centre in Tuimisgearraidh. They are mostly carved from walrus tusks and probably originated in Norway sometime in the 12th century, although when and how they came to be in Uig is unknown.
