Scraggy Bay

Tides and tools
Overview





Scraggy Bay is a small open bay on the Fanad Peninsula located more than six miles within and on the western shore of Northern Ireland's Lough Swilly. The bay provides an anchorage with the opportunity of landing by dinghy at a pier or on its beach at the head of the bay.

Protected by high ground the bay affords good shelter from winds from a westerly quarter, but is somewhat exposed to easterly winds and swell across the Lough. Access to the bay is straightforward in all reasonable weather and tide conditions.
