There has been a lot of discussion as to whether this 1 1/4 mile stretch of
beach is called Machir Bay, Kilchomen Beach or Traigh Mhachir.
The road sign calls it Machir Bay but many locals remember their childhood
when this stretch of beach was just called Kilchomen Beach.
Regardless of what its called this must be one of the finest beaches on Islay
One that is never crowded, in fact if you see more than half a dozen
people you are really unlucky!
