The sand is so white and has to be one of the most stunning Scottish beaches, home to Local Hero it is well worth a visit. Just breathtaking.

Even though it was high season we had the beach to ourselves. Just be careful not to get cut off by the incoming tide. Travelled in summer 2015 but the website doesn't allow us to choose this date.

Stayed here in August 2016 and absolutely loved it. The beaches were amazing and the place was very dog friendly

One of my favourite spots we visited on our trip to Scotland! Lovely, peaceful beach, only a short walk from the car park. Would definitely recommend!

A short walk from the car park through the dunes brings you to a good size beach with lots of sand when the tide goes out which also provides easy access to some of the rocky areas. Views of Skye, Rhum and Eigg. It's possible to work your way along the coast to other connecting beaches.

Fine white sand, shallow water, dunes behind. And a fabulous view towards Skye etc. This is an iconic beach (since Local Hero), and righty so. We hadn't been here for 20 years. There is now a small car-park off the old Arisaig-Morar road. Not too many people in evidence on a weekday in September. We were glad to glad to... More

We had a lovely party on the beach. Even although the weather was overcast it was not cold. The beach was clean and offered a sheltered spot to celebrate our friends special birthday.

This was somewhere I had always wanted to see since the film Local Hero used it as a location. I wasn't disappointed despite the fact it was raining steadily it was still breathtaking. wonderful place to visit.

Stayed locally and this stunning golden sand beach was a few minutes walk away. I never thought Scotland has so many beaches like this. A lovely sunny day, down to my shorts paddling in the sea and sitting on the golden sands....we are in Scotland..not the Caribbean....I kept telling myself!!
