Sconser (Scottish Gaelic: Sgonnsair) is a small crofting township on the island of Skye, in Scotland, situated on the south shore of Loch Sligachan. The main A87 road of Skye passes through Sconser. The ferry to the isle of Raasay departs from Sconser pier.

Less than a mile to the east is the 9-hole Isle Of Skye golf course. Immediately to the south is the mountain Glamaig which can be climbed via An Coileach (The Cockerel).

Sconser was the birthplace of the professional climber John Mackenzie (1856–1933) after whom Sgurr Mhic Choinnich (Mackenzie's Peak) is named.

The settlement of Peinachorran lies on a northeasterly direction across the loch.
