Scarista Beach

Reviewed By trippingovertheglobe - London, United Kingdom

This was such an amazing beach, stunning views all around, soft white sands, and hardly anybody around. We had earlier visited Luskentyre beach, and found that to be far too busy and an unpleasant experience due to the hoards of people and human excrement everywhere. You can park just on the road side here, just before you get to Northton, and walk through the field, and into the dunes where the wonders of this beach then reveal themselves. We spent a magical and solitary couple of hours here, just marvelling at the views and solitude. We will be back

Golden Road

Reviewed By cookington - Plymouth, United Kingdom

We took this route by accident (!) but it was one of the highlights of our stay on Harris - absolutely breathtaking views, almost otherworldly in places. Be prepared to take it slow - there are lots of blind corners and more than a few stubborn sheep too!
