Beautiful clear water and white sand...what more could you want!? The road to get there takes you past some lovely views too if you take the scenic route through Arisaig village.

Perfect for kids, Great beach for ball games, paddling in the sea. We were fortunate it was a beautiful sunny day. Top tip - it's not the turn off for Arisaig! Take the next turn off heading towards Mallaig.

Lovely walk from the car park through the dunes to a fabulous beach. Swimming was good, the water very clear but cold. A great day out.
