Ardtoe

Ardtoe Beach is a lovely sandy beach on the north-east edge of the Ardnamurchan peninsula on the northern side of Kentra Bay. There are four bays in the area, two which are readily accessible from the road. The best area is adjacent to the Marine Research Station which is particularly lovely at low tide. This golden sandy beach also affords some fine views of The Small Isles.

You can also walk along the peninsula towards Farquhar's Point looking out for divers, otters and white-tailed eagles along the rocky coastline. However please note that the ground can be uneven and boggy underfoot and should only be undertaken with appropriate footwear.

The single track road to Ardtoe, from the A861 near Acharacle, passes over Kentra Moss and skirts around Kentra Bay providing a scenic drive to these lovely beaches. There is a small car park at the end of the road with a small parking charge.
