Used to come here as a child and am delighted that apart from the lovely new road, nothing has changed. It's an amazing place. It is however, on the west coast of Scotland so be prepared for some very interesting weather. The day we picked was lovely and we spent the most of the day on the beach. We popped... More

Just spotted this at the last minute driving past, so turned and parked up the single track road beside it... Perfectly clear water and lovely clean white sand! Sat and relaxed with a beer, perfect little spot.

Our first glance of the silver sands were of dogs dirt both in the sand and abandoned in a polythene bag in the sand, not a good start.... As we walked along from our parking place towards the sea on the south side of the river we were confronted by what can only be described as the smell of raw... More

Beautiful silver sands, would have rated excellent if the sun had been shining, but that's Scotland for you!

Heard of the White Sands of Morar years agao and now had the chance to visit and see it. And it's unbelievable. Knew that there are beautiful beaches around Scotland but the white sands are just stunning. Absolutely worth a visit! Think you'll seldom find a beach like this again.

This could be in the Caribbean but the water is too cold. Great sands combined with great views and not too many people.

Drove here after viewing Glenfinnan Viaduct. Read about the coast road through Arisaig and onto Morar before travelling onto Mallaig. Was a beautiful day and the beach could not have been better. White powder sands and crystal clear water. Quiet beaches , do not miss out if you are in the area, it was a lovely drive from Fort William.... More

It was a beautiful day with spectacular views , I have never seen a beach like it . Stunning! We loved the fact that it was very remote and we stayed to see the spectacular sunset. Well worth a visit and if your lucky enough to witness a wedding with a piper on the hill like we did then it... More

Absolutely stunning. A must visit site with stunning views. Visit early in the day and you MAY have the beach to yourself. Very photogenic. I visited it several times in our stay. Highly recommended.
