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 bay dunes 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
The beach around Ardtoe is great for rockpooling, swimming, canoeing and bird watching. The beach is a popular spot for locals and tourists alike in Ardnamurchan and is well worth visiting at low tide.
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.
Ardtoe beach is one of the many lovely sandy beaches on The West Coast of Scotland
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. There is a small beach opposite the car park, and a larger sandy bay to the north-west by the Marine Research Station which can be accessed by walking to the end of road. Just one of the many lovely sandy beaches on The West Coast of Scotland
