White Sands, as the name suggests, overlooks the white sands of the Morar Estuary and the hills beyond. Our 2016 property is approximately a 1 minute walk from beach. It is located in the small hamlet of Tougal, which is 4 miles from Arisaig and 3 miles from Mallaig. Designed and furnished to take all comforts into consideration, the glass-fronted patio doors lead to the decking and makes the most of the outstanding views. You can enjoy the changing skies, tides coming and going and an abundance of birdlife from the comfort of the lounge/dining room.
The area has so much to offer for the outdoor enthusiast; The Sound of Arisaig is one of the world’s top destinations for sea-kayaking. Its countless islands and skerries offer a wealth of hidden places to explore and are also home to an abundance of marine wildlife including seals, otters, dolphins, porpoises and occasionally minke whales and basking sharks. Traigh Golf Course is close by, a 9-hole golf course which is the most westerly golf course on the UK mainland, and it enjoys the most dramatic scenery.
Boat trips from Arisaig and Mallaig take you out to Rum, Muck, Canna and Eigg, great places for wildlife and whale spotting. The property is an excellent base for days out down to Glenfinnan, Ardnamurchan Pennisula, Isle of Skye, Knoydart and Fort Willam, home to the Jacobite Steam Train, which was made famous in the Harry Potter films. There is so much more to see, so come, explore and enjoy, as White Sands offers a truly memorable holiday experience.
