Comfortable, elegant small hotel in a remote location overlooking one of the most beautiful beaches on the south west coast of Harris.

Restaurant open to non residents.

Scarista House is one of the most beautiful and remote places to stay in Britain, with lovely views of the Atlantic Ocean, heather-covered mountains, and a three-mile long sandy beach. There has been a tradition of hospitality at Scarista House for a couple of hundred years. In former times the minister who lived in this Georgian manse, now a Grade B listed building, would have played host to visitors to his church; now it is a comfortable small hotel where guests can enjoy traditional comfort in well-furnished guest rooms, open fires in the sitting rooms and natural, skilled cooking and good wines in the dining room.

Self catering cottage also available.

Scarista House is owned by Neil King, Patricia Martin and Tim Martin and is run by the proprietors, Tim and Patricia Martin.
