Our family of four risked the 6 mile round trip, which ended up with the 3yr old on dads shoulders most of the time. But we got there and had a lovely play on the beach. NB there is nothing there, so.... more »
Beautiful white sands, clear Atlantic waters. If you get there as the tide comes in over sun warmed sand it is a real wild swimming treat. Be warned there is a long trek over rugged ground to get there, its worth it for the views of Eigg and Rhum and sand so clean it squeaks. Parking can be an issue, there's room for just a dozen or so cars and the folk living there aren't that accommodating with signs saying more or less "get off my land". I can see their frustration in having tourists blocking a very narrow road and them needing to rely on cars to get around.
Beautiful, beautiful place. However, a couple of things took the edge off. Midges - probably the worst we've experienced in the whole of ardnamurchan, seriously bad. The locals - at midnight, at least 4x quad bikes appeared to drive up and down the beach shouting "let's wake everyone up". That lasted for about 20 mins. It really is lovely, and there were a lot of people wild camping. My advice would be to go in May before midge season.
