Scourie Beach

The peaceful, sheltered beach at Scourie is the perfect place to spot many seabirds. Set within the shelter of Scourie bay is the long sandy beach of Scourie. The near white sand here is divided by rocky inlets and the sea is a clear blue.

A well signposted beach with plenty of accessible paths, Scourie Beach is a great place to spend the day. Visitors can enjoy the wildlife and bird watching hides, with plenty of information on local animals and the surrounding area. From the car park there is an interesting walk out to the cliff point with spectacular views of the Handa Island. The sea views, particularly from the cairns near the point, are spectacular.
Scourie beach is easily accessed and is a lovely spot to spend some time relaxing, taking in the scenery and watching the abundant wildlife.

Just a short boat trip away is the nature reserve on Handa Island with its magnificent sea cliffs and huge seabird colonies.

This peaceful sheltered beach, next to the cemetery, is signposted off the A894. It can also be reached by a path along the shore from the Scourie campsite and past a birdwatching hide with information on local wildlife.
