Sailings to island Monday to Saturday, 9:00am to 2:00pm (FINAL OUTWARD TRIP)
Handa Island has over 200,000 seabirds on its towering cliffs, including internationally
important numbers of guillemot, razorbill and great skua. Plus more than 250 pairs
of puffin breed here. Also Otters, dolphins, minke whales, pilot whales, porpoises,
basking sharks and the amazing orca (killer whales) also occasionally go by.
Handa island is a short ferry ride from Tarbet turnoff 3 miles North of Scourie on
the A 894, the magnificent Ullapool to Durness west coast road (then from the junction
3 miles to the jetty).
North Coast 500
The Highlands own route 66 - the North Coast 500 marketing often uses a stunning
photo of several sports cars crossing the impressive Kylesku Bridge just a few miles
south of us. Handa is right in the middle of some of the most stunning coastline
on this memorable route. An ideal stopping off point for your trip!
