One of the first places we visited on our recent holiday to the far north west of Scotland, was Scourie Bay. A beautiful inlet of turquoise water, surrounded by a rocky coastline. A stunning sandy beach lines the head of the inlet, and there is also a hide filled with useful information on the area and its wildlife.

A lovely walk out to the headland gave good views of the distant Assynt hills including Suilven, and nearby Handa Island, with scores of sea birds swirling around the cliffs.
