Sandy unspoilt beaches on the Isle of Mull

Kintra Village

Kintra, Nr Fionnphort (Ross of Mull)

This is one of Mull’s little gems located just off the A849, the main road to Fionnphort. It’s a small inlet with lots of interesting rocky islands and a row of 10 cottages, some of them self-catering holiday accommodation. In front of the cottages is a grassy area with sheep roaming aimlessly and a small beach. Best visited when the tide is in.

Uisken Beach

Uisken Beach, Nr Bunessan (Ross of Mull)

This is one of the most popular beaches on the Ross of Mull, a shimmering expanse of white shell sand with stunning views out to Colonsay and the Paps of Jura. Uisken Beach games are held every August with games and art activities for all ages. This is also a great place for birdwatchers. There's a small car park at the entrance.

Ardalanish Beach

Ardalanish Beach, Nr Bunessan (Ross of Mull)

This is another of Mull’s white sand gems. Absolutely gorgeous and really, on a sunny day, you could be forgiven for thinking you were in the Mediterranean. Great for geologists too, outstanding exposures of folded layers of rock. The beach is famous for the New Years Day shinty match. The notice in the village shop reads \"New Year’s Day, Shinty on Ardalanish Beach. Bring wellies and a stick or broom. 10am until the tide comes in!\"

Traigh Gheal

Traigh Gheal, Nr Fionnphort (Ross of Mull)

On very calm days there is nothing like a trip in a boat around the back of the island for a picnic at Traigh Ghael, the wonderful secluded and remote bay at Tireragan on the south of the Ross of Mull. But for those without a boat it’s a good walk through the Tireregan Nature Reserve to get to the beach.

Kilvickeon Beach

Kilvickeon, Scoor, Nr Bunessan (Ross of Mull)

Garbh Eilean is a tidal island on the stunning beach at Kilvickeon, connected by a sand bar - a geological feature called a tombolo. You would be forgiven for thinking the ferry had taken a wrong turning and you'd landed in the Caribbean instead of on the Isle of Mull. There are fabulous views out to Jura and Islay.

Fidden Beaches, Fionnphort (Ross of Mull)

With its pink granite outcrops and large white sandy bay this beach is just breathtaking and one of Mull’s best kept secrets! Children are in their element here playing on the secluded beaches and rock pools. There are the most fantastic views and camping is available at Fidden Farm. The sunsets over Iona are a sight to behold. The image shows one of several beaches near Fidden, with Iona in the background, and the Iona ferry.

Market Bay

Market Bay, Camus, Nr Bunessan (Ross of Mull)

The Queen's beach. A gorgeous remote stretch of sand where you may see no one all day, Market bay amply repays the two-mile walk each way. There are two beaches, one accessible only at low tide or by a rough scramble. This is where the cattle were landed from Tiree on their way to markets on the mainland.

Langamull Beach

Langamull Beach, Dervaig (North West Mull)

Park at the sign-posted North West Mull Community Woodland Company Ltd car park on the Dervaig to Calgary Road. This is a fabulous secluded beach, not quite as accessible as Calgary as it involves a 20 minute walk but well worth humping that picnic hamper down there. Great place to try and spot the very rare Slender Scotch Burnet moth. The views out to Coll and Rum are just breathtaking.

Calgary Bay

Calgary Bay, Nr Dervaig (North West Mull)

This is one of the Inner Hebridean island’s must-sees, with its sweeping silver sands and craggy headlands - home to a rich variety of birdlife and the haunting ruins of abandoned villages. It is located on the north west of Mull about 5 miles beyond Dervaig. A broad area of machair lies between the land and the beach. There is car parking, public toilets and also a Wild Camping area.

Laggan Sands, Lochbuie (South East Mull)

This beach was voted 9th best beach in the UK for wildlife spotting in The Guardian travel section -July 2006. Sea eagles, golden eagles and seals are all regularly seen here. When the tide is out there is a huge expanse of golden sand. Lochbuie Estate has created and maintained car-parks and walks around the area.
