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 would have played host to visitors to his church; now it is a comfortable small hotel and restaurant. We serve a set menu, but with notice we can provide for most dietary needs and we take particular care to cater for vegetarians. We aim for natural, skilled cooking of the ingredients most immediately available, especially the Hebrides’ fish, shellfish, lamb, beef and game. We use organic, wild or home-produced ingredients as much as possible. Bread, cakes, biscuits and ice-creams are made by us. In recognition of the care that we take in sourcing and preparing our food, we are the only restaurant from the Outer Hebrides to be featured in Alastair Sawday’s Eat Slow Britain. We are also listed in the Michelin Guide; the Good Food Guide; the Good Hotel Guide; Alastair Sawday’s Special Places to Stay; and Scotland the Best. We are one of the The Times top 10 best places to eat by the sea in the UK. We have an interesting list of about 80 wines with prices from £15 to £140.
