Scarista Beach on the west coast of the Isle of Harris is where the land meets the sea in spectacular fashion.
Lovely golden sand stretches for over 3 miles in this quiet, secluded bay. Amble across the dunes and moorland, marvel at the carpets of wildflowers to reach the sparkling blue sea. From here you can see the deserted island of Taransay, made famous for the TV series ‘Castaway’.
Public toilets with disabled facilities.
