Scott's Shore.

Scott’s Shore is the rocky beach off Atlantic Avenue abutting the Sherbrooke property to the west and the causeway to the east. In 1971 Whitney Scott, son of the owner and later a Trustee, arranged for CCT to receive title to the eastern half of the property. Nineteen years late in December 1990, Whitney Scott’s mother, Catherine Scott, generously gave the Trust the remaining western half of the beach.

The deed stipulates the land is for "preserving the natural beauties of the town of Cohasset and protecting the animal life therein…and not for recreational purposes."  The property carries CCT signage to that effect.
