This walk explores the Silver Sands of Morar, a chain of beautiful sandy beaches in the Highlands that feel like Scotland’s answer to the Caribbean.
Tucked away in a wild and rugged part of western Scotland on a dead-end road to Mallaig, Morar is a small village with a collection of beaches that rival any coastal destination in the world.
This stunning string of white sand beaches offer wonderful views across the islands of Muck, Eigg, Rum and Canna.
The Silver Sands of Morar are easy to access thanks to their close proximity to the A830 road, and this short circular route explores the quieter northern section around Morar Bay.
There are some wet and boggy sections but mostly this is a very simple walk – and one that’s so secretive and secluded you may well have it all to yourself.
This route was voted 65th in a 2017 ITV poll to find Britain’s Favourite Walk.
TOG VERDICT: A chain of Scottish beaches that wouldn’t look out of place in the Caribbean – visit in good weather and you’ll feel like you’ve walked into a dream.
