Scarista (Sgarasta in Gaelic) lies on the south western coast of South Harris.
Facing out onto the Atlantic, the village of Scarista offers miles of golden sands and dramatic views over the Sound of Taransay. The beaches in this area are popular with surfers and golfers also find the Isle of Harris Golf Club, in Scarista, an appealing challenge.
Scarista House is a small hotel with a restaurant serving local dishes and an extensive wine list.
Scarista is a good base for exploring the rest of South Harris and further afield to the Uists via the ferry from nearby Leverburgh.
