- The Ross
Scoor Beach (Traigh Bhan Na Sgurra) has a dramatic setting in a stunning hidden inlet in a coastline of sandy beaches and rocky coves. Scoor Beach is fairly difficult to reach via a bumpy road which is more like a track and a short hike across moorland with no path. It is worth also visiting the deserted township of Shiaba, formerly home to 350 people before the Clearances saw them all picked up on the local beaches and transported as emigrants. To reach Scoor, take the A849 just east of Bunessan and follow the road along the side of Loch Assapol. The last part of the road is a very rough track to the car park at Kilvickeon. After visiting the Beach, don’t miss Scoor Cave with a fascinating history and a superb view from the mouth of the cave. The rock carvings are said to date from 2,000 - 3,000 bc. We are happy to provide maps and information for Scoor Beach, Scoor Cave and Shiaba.
