The word "way" means "so far" in this case. It is an intensifier of "out".

In my opinion, your sentence should be "It's scary to be way out here by myself."

This could have a literal or a figurative meaning.

literal: I am afraid because I am physically located in an area far from other people.

figurative: I am afraid because I have no supporters for my position.
