Don’t come here unless you are prepared to clear all your own rubbish, have somewhere where you can defacate without using the beach or woodlands, can park in a designated space and not block the road, respect the environment and the local culture. Do not have beach fires, disposable bbq , cut down trees for wood.
Please leave only footprints and if you want to camp book into a local campsite and contribute to the local economy.

Too many freeloading, disrespectful and general so called wild campers are destroying the natural beauty and delicate enviroment, so please stay away unless you can leave it as you should find it...,...peaceful and natural

To be fair we weren't camping but called to see if it was still a friendly welcoming site we remember from years ago with intentions of camping there again. In short, no. I won't say welcomed, more like begrudgingly met by a "couldn't care less" man who informed us they weren't taking campers due to pandemic (fair enough although site half empty) and was doubtful next year unless we had hook up??? Our autistic granddaughter badly needed the loo but he wouldn't allow her to use one. He said he'd have to clean it after...I'd have cleaned it myself if he'd allowed her to use it. Asked about fees for next year if camping was allowed and we got a shrug and " I dont know, the other half decides the prices not me..I just cut the grass"! No offer to find out or invite to go and see the other half. Never felt so unwelcome and I'm sure Alistair would be mortified if he was still alive. Will not be going back.

Came over Easter weekend, didn't see too many people there even so.

At the higher end of the tide it is a beautiful place, with white sands.

A mark off because the fact the water disappears at low tide leaving a mud flat made things tricky when high tides were early and late in the day (both around 7 o'clock), meaning for most of the day it wasn't so pretty. So the windows when it was were relatively short, and given the weather is very changeable we didn't really see it at its best over even 3 days in Morar as you need to have the tide in and good weather at the same time!

That wouldn't be such a thing if when you visit high tide is in the middle of the day, as then you'll get a good few hours of the water being in the vicinity of the beach.

Some informal rope swings have been put up that the kids enjoyed, and I liked the variety of bays.

Morar beach and others nearby are beautiful and until recently have been unspoilt. Unfotunately there are too many idiots around who seem to think that the signs asking everyone not to have campfires don't apply to them. I counted 6 abandoned firepits, complete with litter. If you're going to go to a place because it's beautiful, take your litter away with you and keep it beautiful.

This was one of the highlights of a recent Scottish Highlands roadtrip. Slightly off the beaten track, there is a small car park with (free) toilets, and a short walk down to the beach. A warm-ish weekday in October, the beach was almost empty. Spotless, bright sand, turquoise water, this was a perfect stop for short stroll and a rest. If there weren't so many other things to see in the area, we could easily have stayed all day. If you want some refreshments, there are none here, but I'd recommend a short 10 minute drive to Arisaig for a coffee with a view.

I had seen so many great reviews about this beach so I drove 2 hours to get here and I was so disappointed. There were many wild campers there. It didn’t even resemble a beach to me if I’m honest. Hardly any water, water was very dirty, looks like oil in water, sea weed, worms which is obvious nature. Only positive was it’s the whitest sand I’ve seen in Scotland but I much preferred sea cliff beach at north Berwick or St. Andrews beach. I wouldn’t recommend.

The beaches are beautiful with white sand and clear water. Just a bit of a shame that so many tents are allowed to park close together along the whole beach. I don’t begrudge wild camping in the slightest, but surely it could be a good balance I.e. wild tents allowed on some beaches, others free for day trips. A gentle balance.

I was met by the owner of the campsite and explained to her we were looking for a way to the beach. She was very rude and told us we could not pass through her campsite to get to the beach. I would encourage the rude lady to look up the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003. THE RIGHT TO ROAM! Crossing land is a reference to going into it, passing over it and leaving it for the purpose of getting to another such place. As a younger girl my family and I litter picked your campsite and I was shocked to be met with such unkindness years later. We were happy to keep your area safe and clean without being asked. Possibly approach people in a kind manner and it might just encourage people to come to your campsite. It really is a shame as Arisaig is a beautiful place and have been many a time. I would recommend everyone of the other campsites before this one and you'll have a brilliant stay, in a brilliant location :). Sunnyside and back of Keppoch pods are great and you'll get lovely hosts!

Had 2 great days on beach in July. Safe and clean for family day out. We did have a bbq and took everything away when we were finished. Children, ages 9,7 and 6 swam in sea and had a terrific time.
