The machairs or dune grasslands of the bays of Oldshoremore, Oldshorebeg and Sheigra are among the richest dune areas in Britain, with over 200 different species of flowering plant growing here. These plant communities co-exist with the traditional low intensity farming methods of the local crofters. The machairs are especially colourful in early summer.
