Fodor's Expert Review Scarista House

Off A859, Borve, Western Isles, HS3 3HX, Scotland

This lovingly converted Georgian manse (minister's residence) offers large and comfortable bedrooms, a peaceful location with spectacular views over a pristine 3-mile-long sandy beach, and a dining experience that's unmatched anywhere else on Harris. The hotel's communal lounge is as cozy as can be, with comfy sofas positioned around a roaring fire; pluck a book from groaning bookshelf and settle in for the evening. For longer stays, the hotel's self-service Glebe Cottage can be rented by the week.

PROS

  • magnificent setting and views
  • delicious food (try the tarte Tatin)
  • friendly and attentive service

CONS

  • patchy Wi-Fi
  • some oppressively floral wallpaper
