We stopped off here both ways on our way to the ferry. It's a lovely location, with a beautiful beach about 300m from the main A road. Saw horses walking along the beach, and dogs are allowed.

Hi This is very short notice! We go today We are going on Jacobite train to mallaig and wandered if we could get a taxi to silver sands beach during to stop over. Having lunch in mallaig which would leave us just over an hour to see the beach. Don't know if there are any taxis in mallaig? Thanks

Yes, I'm sure that you could get a taxi from Mallaig it is only or six miles to Moray. Best to contact th Tourist information service for details.
