Beautiful views and the children loved being on the beach.
Public toilets were not very pleasant and in fact the 2nd time we went they had been locked up and out of order.

“Lovely walk from Oban”
Reviewed 20 September 2011

Lovely walk from Oban passing the war memorial, Dunollie Castle and a small bay before you reach Ganavan Sands. The bay isn't very large but has nice sand and wonderful views. Spoilt a bit by the new apartments which have been built at one end. There's a cycle path to Dunbeg and a footpath to Dunstaffange from there. Its possible to get the bus to/from the beach. There are also toilets at the beach.
