Scarp Settings

The slipway at Huisinish is quite a drive from the Tarbert - Stornoway road, but it provides an entry to sheltered waters, with Scarp beyond and, in the distance the hills of West Lewis.

The beach above is opposite Scarp and the one below is on the island itself. Home-owners are permitted to stay there until the Autumn when the place becomes depopulated as happened in December 1971 when its last permanent residents left.
