With views across to the hills of Mull, as well as to Lismore and mainland Morven behind, this is an excellent getaway beach for the townsfolk of Oban. It’s also a beautiful beach in its own right, with a wonderful coast walk to the north, where peace and tranquility can be found on soft grassy knolls. This re-visit showcased a fine palette of greys, whites, blacks and blues, as the sea melded into the land.

Ganavan Sands is located a mile or so north of Oban, looking across the bottom of Loch Linnhe to the Sound of Mull. It’s a picturesque, sandy blue flag beach and is easily accessed from the town. Oban itself, as well as being a gateway to Mull, has reinvented itself as a tourist destination in its own right, featuring the imposing McCaig’s Tower that sits above the town, Dunollie Castle and billing itself as “the Seafood Capital of the Highlands”, well worth a visit.
