Ganavan Beach is Oban's white sand paradise
Meaning "white sands" in Gaelic, Ganavan is a picturesque spot to paddle or beach comb, with sweeping views over the isles.
The beach car park is also an easy place to jump on the walking and cycling trail that leads to Dunollie Castle.

The beach is located 2 miles from the North Pier, or catch the bus, which stops at the beach car park.
