“Relaxation at its best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

We took a wee drive along to Ganavan Sands and parked at the car park beside the beach. We took the bikes and had a cycle in the area, stopping for a wee walk along the sands.

You look directly across to the Isle of Kerrera and in the far distance is Mull. The sound of the water lapping ashore, the birds and the breeze, not to mention the unseasonal sunny day, made it one of my favourite days and one I'll remember!

“Relax and enjoy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Lovely place to sit and enjoy the view or have a walk along the beach with the dog. Also a tarmac path heads off behind the sands into the hills for walking or cycling.

Clean and tidy, with facilities to grab a Tea or Coffee.
