Access notes
A short swim. Check tides carefully - retreat will be problematic at high tide (a tyrolean is not possible).

Contrary to earlier information, this stack is in the county of Sutherland, *not* Ross & Cromarty.

Most direct route is via the nearby village of Kinlochbervie from where a four mile hike brings you Sandwood Bay. The stack is at the southwestern end of the beach.

Note there is no vehicular access to Sandwood or the stack.
