Traigh Iar simply means West Beach.  In the past, Hebrideans named everything: a small outcrop of rock, a gentle pasture, a reef offshore.  Sometimes, the names were magical like Cleite na h-Uamha which means rock of the caves and conjures up all sorts of images and emotions.  Others were more mundane and literal like Geodha Mhor which means big cove or big chasm.  The idea that Traigh Iar was simply the West Beach demonstrated the profusion of beaches on the west side of Harris –  despite being very beautiful, it was gifted a truly unimaginative name.
