Scott’s Landing, Deer Isle

The Island Heritage Trust says this is one of the island’s best places for birding, and was once a productive spot for Native Americans to fish. The preserve includes fields, woods, and a beach where you can see a midden where native people discarded shells. There are many places to duck out onto the beach from the trail system. The land trust has created a self-guided tour of this interesting spot.

Directions: Turn into the preserve driveway off Route 15, soon after the causeway. The entrance is across from Causeway Bay.
