The Marloes Sands is another surprisingly beautiful beach. It’s unspoilt and un-commercialized but you can get social amenities, restaurants and suitable pub cuisine at the nearby Marloes village.

THE WEST COAST OF SCOTLAND
The Scotland coast is truly enchanting blessed with abundant natural beauty, spectacular marine and land wildlife and stunning geographical diversity.
It is truly impossible to mention the west coast without talking about the Seafood Capital of Scotland: Oban. There is no better plan than to get some self catering accommodation in Oban and use it as a base to explore this stunning area. Oban is one of the leading coastal resorts of Scotland, it boasts of beautiful coastal scenery and remains of ancient historical ruins. You can enjoy whale watching activities during summer as you cruise down the warm Gulf waters. Explore the inner islands such as Seil, Shuna, Luing and head to the inner isles of Lunga, Scarba and Jura. In the inner isles you will catch glimpses of herons, seals and otters along the shores; however it is in the deeper turbulent waters of the Gulf of Corryvreckan that you will find whales swimming surprisingly near your boat. In summer more animals are attracted by the warm weather and if you are keen enough you may see dolphins, porpoises and basking sharks.
The Scottish Sea life sanctuary is great place to get a closer look at the animals you have been seeing in your cruise, learn about them and probably touch them. There is a massive aquarium with everything from sharks to seahorses.
