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.
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.
