The beach at Scourie enjoys an exquisite setting, featuring Scourie Bay, with Handa Island round to the north, a haven for birds, with waterfalls that are four times higher than Niagra Falls.  The beach itself is sandy, shaped in a pleasing arc for a strand line walk.  This pristine environment is protected by the Scourie Coast SSSI and the Handa Special Protection Area.  As a result, the area is largely undeveloped, but access is good, dogs are welcome, parking is not a problem and the North Coast 500 route passes nearby.  This is a location to savour, invigorating and highly recommended.
