The Sheep Station on Isle of Harris Receives 5-Stars from VisitScotland

A Hebridean self-catering hideaway with views of the golden shores of Scarista beach and the Atlantic Ocean has received VisitScotland’s highest rating for quality.

The Sheep Station, located in Scaristavore on the south of the Isle of Harris, has been awarded 5 Stars in the national tourism organisation’s Quality Assurance (QA) scheme.

“The Sheep Station truly has the ‘wow’ factor and is only matched by its stunning location on the beautiful Outer Hebrides. The five-star grading reflects the investment and commitment of owners Catherine and Richard Sinclair-Scott in creating a high-quality experience for visitors and it is a fine example of the luxury accommodation market on the Isle of Harris,” said Chris Taylor, VisitScotland Regional Leadership Director. “Tourism is the heartbeat of the Scottish economy and touches every community, generating income, jobs and social change and the Quality Assurance award scheme helps businesses to reach their full potential and truly shine.”

Designed by Dualchas, specialists in the renaissance of Highland architecture, the houses feature luxury interiors and outstanding views that guests are unlikely to ever forget.

The self-catering accommodation was praised for its “wow factor” and a welcome pack provided on arrival which includes Bollinger champagne and Scottish produce was described as “second to none” in the QA assessment.

Catherine and Richard Sinclair-Scott, owners of The Sheep Station, said, “The concept of The Sheep Station is to offer a luxury home away from home amidst the natural beauty of Harris' west coast. What drew us to Scaristavore was the stunning landscape and we've worked to create homes that complement that unique island environment. We're delighted to receive five stars from VisitScotland so early in our journey. We look forward to welcoming visitors from across the globe to The Sheep Station and the stunning Isle of Harris.”
