Arrival on Scoraig

The easy way is by boat from Badluarach Jetty IV23 2RA

You might get a lift across the water from somebody.  You will not find so much ferrying activity at low tides, so check the timing here.  Boats are small and the weather is a big factor.

  1. Dear People of Scoraig,

    I’m from Kernow (Cornwall) I live on an old oak gaff rigged sailing vessel, and would very much like to visit on my circumnavigation of Britain next year, I would like to buy fresh vegetables etc… and perhaps some other useful items, and to make some connections and socialise.
    my vessel is 65ft long and requires 2m of water to the seabed at the lowest tide.
    Could you please let me know the best place to anchor and the best and worst times of year, and what wind speed and direction makes anchoring difficult in certain places.

  2. Scoraig is a wonderful place for children to grow up because there is so much freedom to runaround in and is all-ways great no matter the weather

  3. Have made frequent visits to Scoraig – always walking. Note that computer users will be very confused if they look for Scoraig on “Bing” Maps. Bing is the default mapping program within the latest version of Microsoft Windows.
    Bing have Scoraig positioned at Badluarach – which for drivers is the closest point but hardly accurate!
    I have notified Bing (via feeback option on web) – maybe some local folk should too!

  4. Hi Scoraig!

    I live in Letters with my girlfriend and we would like to come and visit your community. We are green-minded and would love to see how you live with the land over there. Is there someone we can connect with in particular? And is it OK to come and camp for a couple of days?

    Thanks,

    Kester

  5. I am a mature student training to be a professional photographer following redundancy from my job as an education advisor for Barnsley Council.
    For my next project I will be doing a photo essay on the potential for renewing communities in the Scottish Highlands through renewable energy. I would like to come to Scoraig for 4 or 5 days to photograph. I also hope to go to Eigg, Skye and other places. The outcome will be an old fashioned photo essay, rather like Picture Post or a Sunday newspaper magazine. If the pictures are of good enough quality I may seek publication as I also have some journalistic experience.
    For my part I think I am likely to be more successful if I enter this project with the goodwill of your community association behind me so that people knew I was coming and I had some idea of where my presence as a photographer may be welcome. I would provide you with all the images I take electronically at very high resolution and you would be free to use them as you wished, for publicity, your website etc. Also, if you had any specific needs photographically I would be happy to oblige whilst I was in Scoraig.
    I am flexible about when I come; at the moment I am thinking of around April 27th or May 18th.
    If you would like to see my developing work please let me know and I will send you a link.
    I look forward to hearing from you
    Best wishes
    Jeremy Abrahams

  6. Hi – do you have a waiting list of people who would be interested in moving to your area should plots or houses come up for sale?

    If so I would be very interested in joining.

    Many thanks.

    • Hi Aubrey,
      Nobody can really speak for the community as a whole. The community association operate this web site to provide information. You should contact the sellers directly

      You can find details of the properties that are for sale under the “Property” heading in the black menu bar above. Scoraig is an unusual location, so I’d advise a long visit before buying anything. You can find options for accommodation and woofing under the “Accommodation” heading.

      I hope this helps!
      Hugh

  7. Hi Hugh

    Thanks for the response. Will have a look at the property – just wasn’t sure if they were up to date or not.

    It is the unusual location that is the attraction!

    Thanks again.

  9. Hello, I was wondering what the plumbing situation is? I see that there is electricity, but being from Montana I have seen some very small towns with minimal electricity and no running water.

    • hi
      Yes this is a very modern house with all the plumbing and wiring you would get in any other modern home. It was built quite recently to high standards.
      cheers

  10. I have a catamaran, is there a sheltered beach or slip I can rest on?
    Or a good place to anchor?
    She only draws 1m..
    I am arriving June- July this year….I have no time restraints.
    And wish to go and look for Orcas if anyone wants to join me ?

  11. Hi over the past year i`ve been doing the coastline of Britain on my motorcycle. The way i have done it is staring At great Yarmouth i just keep right and along all dead end roads etc i go as far as i can get or am legally allowed and then turn round and keep right! Its taken me 24 days so far so its vital i don`t miss any bit out. I`m stating again f this Saturday once i reach Ullapool so my question is when i reach your unsuitable for motors sign am i allowed to ride on past it untill the track gets too bad and i need to turn back.
    Thanks Darren

    • hi Darren,

      This may already be history but if you have not yet set out I suggest you first walk the route as you might end up dead. It can be done but I doubt if you want to try it! Very steep and dangerous.

      cheers, Hugh
