Sand, sea and stunning views of Arran are the simple key draws of Scalpsie Bay: a fairly popular beach on Bute's southwestern coastline. On a sunny day at low tide it's hard to beat, with almost a kilometre of beach to explore and the small size of the car park preventing overcrowding. Combine it with a trip up Tarmore Hill, which overlooks the bay on its northwest side.
