I see there a few campsites on or near the beaches south of Mallaig, but they all look like huge caravan sites. 

Can anyone recommend a 'wild' spot to pitch a tent near there?

Ferry to Inverie?  (Only half joking - the Knoydart Foundation campsite is delightful.)

Sunnyside croft and Silversands both take camp tourers, and aren't too dominated by big statics.

While there are 'spots' by the road and beach around the Arsaig to mallaig coast they aren't 'wild', and suffer from huge pressure. Due to irresponsible behavior over a protracted period many locals are right 'royally' fed up. Also you may find you gain neighbors whom aren't that keen on sleep! Think the bottom of Glen Etive by the sea.

I've personally watched a family build a fire burning a hole in a crofters machiar even though there was a sign 10ft away asking them politely not to, despite the fact they could have easily built it on the beach below the high water line, only 30ft away.  This was in the middle of last years heat wave, and it set the roadside verge alight.......and they weren't representative of the delinquent elements.
