Scourie is the next base on your Scotland circuit. On the second day, anyway. Spend your first night in Sandwood Bay after a glorious day on Scotland’s most impressive beaches. Tomorrow you’ll need to slowly make your way to Scourie and spend the night there. That’s if you’re following our Alternative North Coast 500 Route, heading anti-clockwise.
It’s all wilderness and emptiness around Durness; you’ll find much of the same when you head south. Next up are some of Scotland’s most impressive beaches and an absolute cracker in Handa Island. Scourie provides a good base to explore from. If you’re following the traditional route, then check out our Guide to the Tongue Area instead.
