We’d never heard of Handa Island – not until our pal Neil told us about it this summer. We’re local and we love exploring the Scottish islands. After all, we’ve been to Skye, Rúm, Mull, Arran, Bute and more, but we’d never been to Handa Island. How can you visit somewhere when you’ve never even heard of it?
It’s incredible that we hadn’t – Handa Island is a fascinating place and has a lot to offer every type of visitor. So. Now that you’ve heard of it, you’re already one step ahead of us. In this post, you’re also going to learn how to get there and why even non-birdwatchers should have a visit to Handa on their priority list. Driving our North Coast 500 Alternative Route? Then it’s one of the many worthwhile detours.
