One of my favourite spots we visited on our trip to Scotland! Lovely, peaceful beach, only a short walk from the car park. Would definitely recommend!

A short walk from the car park through the dunes brings you to a good size beach with lots of sand when the tide goes out which also provides easy access to some of the rocky areas. Views of Skye, Rhum and Eigg. It's possible to work your way along the coast to other connecting beaches.

There is now a small car-park off the old Arisaig-Morar road. Not too many people in evidence on a weekday in September. We were glad to glad to... More

We had a lovely party on the beach. Even although the weather was overcast it was not cold. The beach was clean and offered a sheltered spot to celebrate our friends special birthday.

This was somewhere I had always wanted to see since the film Local Hero used it as a location. I wasn't disappointed despite the fact it was raining steadily it was still breathtaking. wonderful place to visit.

Stayed locally and this stunning golden sand beach was a few minutes walk away. I never thought Scotland has so many beaches like this. A lovely sunny day, down to my shorts paddling in the sea and sitting on the golden sands....we are in Scotland..not the Caribbean....I kept telling myself!!

If you need to sit on a beach, watch the sea and sand and remember there is God in heaven and he loves you, you might to spend an hour or so here. It's simply beautiful and on a sunny day, you could believe you were in the West Indies. ( Admittedy, that's a rare occurrence in the West Highlands,... More

Sand dune beach. Worth a visit to view or enjoy a swim as the sand is fine and the water is clear. Has a gentle slope, thus kids have a great time playing in the shallows.
