Travel guide to Scourie
Scourie is probably a great little place. However its significance is in its situation. In Scourie Bay lies the small island of Handa, which is reached from the tiny settlement of Tarbet. This is a reserve of the Scottish Wildlife Trust and is a magnet for bird lovers, particularly in the nesting season. The Trust’s website claims that in 1999 rats were exterminated on the island and that since then puffins have started to nest there, joining the other auks and both types of skua which feature among the massive bird population. Prior to that they kept to a magical stack just off and observable from Handa, which is literally covered in birds.
The return ferry crossing will cost you nearly £8 and remember to have some headgear because you may well be subjected to skua attack – seriously!
Before leaving Tarbet, enjoy a snack at the cafe.
