House and Rooms

All of our rooms have views of the sea, sand and hills

Scarista House isn't a grand, stately home but it is a warm and comfortable place to stay. There are three bedrooms in the main house and three suites (each with its own private little sitting room) in the adjacent Glebe House. All the rooms have sea views and bathrooms en-suite. We have tried to choose furniture and fabrics which reflect the period, and are sympathetic to, the original use of the house. A library and first floor drawing room, both with open fires, are also available to guests. There are no televisions or radios, but there is free Wi-Fi with (slightly weather dependent) broadband.

Dogs are welcome. We have two dogs and a cat.
DOT, HANNAH and ELSA are the three rooms in the main house.
DOT has a kingsize double bed, a small ensuite bathroom and is the only bedroom in the main house which directly faces the sea.

HANNAH has a kingsize double bed, a large ensuite bathroom and has south facing views over the garden to the church with the beach and the sea beyond.

ELSA is a twin room next to HANNAH with the same lovely views. The bathroom window looks north to Taransay and the hills of North Harris in the distance.

LILY, LUCY and FLORA are the three suites in Glebe House. Each room has lovely views of the beach and the sea.

LILY is at the south end of Glebe House. From the super-kingsize bed you can enjoy uninterrupted views over to the sea. It has a little sitting room with full length windows to take advantage of the lovely views. There is a small double sofa bed in the sitting room.

LUCY, which is next to LILY, has twin beds which can be joined to make a super-kingsize double. It also has its own little sitting room (with sofa bed) with the same lovely views as from LILY.

FLORA is the largest suite, also with lovely views, making it ideally suited for families. The bedroom has a kingsize bed and a single bed. The large sitting room has a double sofa bed. Off the sitting room is a fully-equipped galley kitchen.
The library has an open fire, lots of books, and plenty of CDs. The resident cat, Misty, Maud the pug and Tess the cocker spaniel will occasionally wander into the library to visit guests.
Cats and dogs are excluded from the comfortable 1st floor drawing room, where there is another open fire. The view of the ocean from the writing table in the window of this room is one of the best in the house.
Children are welcome, and an early evening meal is provided.
You are welcome to bring your pets to Scarista House by prior arrangement. The rooms in the Glebe House are especially suitable for guests with dogs as they are so easily accesible from the grounds.
There is no television at Scarista House.
