    The most amazing white sandy beach, and brilliant for dog walks. Very quiet and wonderful views over to Rhum and Eigg and Skye in the distance

    We came across the Land Sea and Islands Centre on our way from a walk we'd taken nearby. Our family of three thought we might just stay for a few minutes to take a quick look but we ended up staying for about 45 minutes, there was so much to learn ranging from local history to information about local wildlife. There was also a great view of the harbor just behind the building, with more information about local wildlife and a set of benches where you could sit to take in the view. There was a playground across the street as well, but we didn't end up going because we were having a good time exploring the Centre and walking along the harbor area.

    Fabulous
    White sand from coral drawn in from the Gulf Stream
    When the tide is out we have a site of special scientific interest which should cover the geographical area as a UNESCO site

    Played it on a Sunday afternoon thinking we might go round twice (9*2) for the £28 day pass rate. Ended up playing twelve holes as the weather turned a bit.

    Except for the second par five it pays to have a true aim rather than massive distance of the tee.

    There's a number of blind tee shots. With the friendly lady at the clubhouse explaining hole 2 blind tee shot as well as your approach (unless you drive it like Rory). At the clubhouse you can get some refreshments to take out onto the course as well as some balls, tees, hats and a course guide I'd recommend.

    Well worth playing twice as you'll have a better understanding of how to play the course. There is quite a bit of elevation change so we carried our bags. Obviously the wind plays a major part in how you play the course.

    Will definitely go back time and weather permitting.

    I enjoyed wandering around the churchyard with graves to local dignitaries and local folk alike and a small Commonwealth Graves section. Unfortunately the church itself was locked

    I dont spend much time going round graveyards so I haven't much to compare it to. However this is Arisaig - small highland town/village with not much to do. Enjoy!

    The Larichmore Viaduct was built c 1897, for the West Highland Railway Line. A nice viaduct, well worth a look.

    Take time to read the names of the Czech & Slovak soldiers who trained in Arisaig during World War 2 for operations in Europe, very poignant. Classed as a war grave as many of those named were never found. Made by internationally renowned Czech sculptor Josef Vajce and produced in Czech granite by stonemasons near Prague.

    Mike was fabulous with my 3 children, his laid back attitude appealed to my 8, 11 & 13 year old. They made progress with their aim, they didn't want it to stop and had a great time. Thank you, Mike

    Arisaig Station on the line from Fort William to Mallaig is worth the short detour just outside the village to take in the stunning scenery and views. It would be fantastic to be able to time a visit to see the old steam Jacobite Express passing through

    We had a fantastic full day trip with Mike from the team. Really good local knowledge of about routes, topography, and geology if you're into that thing (we are!). He did a really good job of assessing the ability of the group and our route was well planned, just challenging enough for the beginner paddlers and with some optional, more challenging water that was easily avoidable unless you wanted to go through it :) They also did a great job with the photos and videos, which were all made available online I think same or definitely next day. Super fun, we've been out with them before, and we'll go out again next time we're near Skye.

    The boat trip itself is still great! If you're lucky you will experience wildlife at its best. Various seabirds, dolphins, wales. However, we missed the experienced and charismatic former skipper- Ronnie. The Cafe at the Marina is not as nice as it used to be. They serve every food and drink in plastic containers and take away cups where they used to have normal cups and plates. Just wondering why. These days we know so much about environmental friendly consumption. The staff was very friendly and helpful, though!
