Season: summer

The Silver Sands of Morar make up the most northerly of a string of beautiful beaches that stretch south from below Mallaig to Arisaig, the other two being Camusdarach and Arisaig itself. Testimony to the wild, natural beauty here is the fact that Morar beach was used in the films “Local Hero” and “Breaking the Waves”.  Morar is a station stop on the magnificent train line between Fort William and Mallaig, featuring the steam train called “The Jacobite” and crossing the spectacular Glenfinnan viaduct, further to the east,  This is a spectacular part of the Highlands, highly recommended.

    You just need to look out onto the Silver Sands of Morar and you instantly feel calm, relaxed and inspired. Sand between your toes, food for the soul, what’s not to love about the beach?

    Being at Morar beach, with its peace and quiet, is to be that bit closer to God. As the song “The Silver Sands of Morar” says, “Where the river meets the sea, that’s the place I will be. Blessed Morar, with its lovely Silver Sands.”
