Stunning place to visit. After we climbed up over the sand dunes, the view was stunning. Both the beach and water was beautiful, definitely worth a visit.

Even though it was high season we had the beach to ourselves. Just be careful not to get cut off by the incoming tide. Travelled in summer 2015 but the website doesn't allow us to choose this date.

Yes. Just google Camusdarach self-catering and you should get a number of options. Also try Morar and Arisaig
Hello. The actual Campsite at Camusdarach doesn't have a Tripadvisor entry itself although there is a website. So I am just looking for any info on or experiences of the site at Camusdarach? We would like to go in our touring caravan this year. Thank you 🌻
