Not a particularly pleasant approach through a muddy farm track and a pretty rundown, untidy farm at that (which put us off buying the beef which was for sale). A short ten minutes though took us to what felt like a very remote corner of...More

We followed the signs for Knockvolgan/Fidden when in Fionnphort. We passed the camping site at Fidden & kept going until we came to a closed gate that said John & Linda No 1 Knockvolgan. We contemplated turning back but decided to chance opening the gate,...More

Not a better beach in the world. When the sun glistens over the sea and sand this could be the Caribbean. We love this place but don't tell everybody as this is one of the great best kept secrets. Stunning views as well

This is a fantastic place to visit. Parking is in a farmers yard so consideration to him is a must. A bit of a walk down a rough path but worth it. Peace, tranquillity, beautiful sand and clear waters. Dogs are welcome but there are...More

Leave your car on the grass verge and walk the rest of the way down to the beach and you won't be disappointed! The views are spectacular. The beach is clean and the sand almost white. It's the sort of place to take a couple...More

The fishing may be poor. But the waters are very safe for watersports such as coasteering swimming snorkeling diving, kayaking and paddle boarding. Very sheltered because of the outlying islands. very shallow waters

One of the best beaches I have ever been to. Only thing to note if you are going is its a little bit of a walk so pack light. Also some of the stones on the way down are quite slippy.

Beautful sandy beaches, clear water and found a seal who came to check out what was happening. A short trech from the car park but opens up to the stunning beaches. Love it here.

A few miles down a track through a farm gets you to a secluded beach with seals, and views to die for.. Not much parking so go early or late in the day.
