An Sithean Back

Self Catering Scarinish

An Sithean is a deceptively spacious house completed in 2015, built to a very high standard in the traditional Tiree 'blacktop' style.

It is located on the edge of Scarinish, set back from the main village and with uninterrupted panoramic views west across the island. The house is within two minutes’ walk of the Co-op, bank, hotel and post office and only a fifteen minute walk from the ferry pier. It is also within easy walking distance of several beaches.

See our own website for detailed availability including short breaks.



Porch and Hallway - An Sìthean is entered through the porch which has pegs for coats and leads into the hallway with access to the main rooms and the staircase to the first floor. There is laminate flooring downstairs and carpeting upstairs.

Lounge - The light and spacious lounge has comfortable seating for six, a wood burning stove, a large flat screen TV with Blu-ray player, and a small table and chairs. French windows open onto the decking which stretches the length of the house. There is a selection of books, DVDs and games available for the occasional wet day!

Kitchen /Dining - The large dining kitchen is fully equipped with electric hob and oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. The large solid wood dining table and chairs sit beside the French windows.

Master Bedroom - The large downstairs master bedroom with French windows and en-suite facilities, has a king sized bed and plenty of wardrobe and drawer storage. The en-suite has a bath with shower over, basin, wc and heated towel rail.

The house has oil fired central heating with radiators in every room. In addition there is a wood burning stove in the lounge. The hot water is supplemented by a solar panel.

There is a good broadband connection with Wi-Fi and a landline phone for incoming calls only.

Bed linen and towels, for house use only, are supplied. Beach towels are not provided. All bedrooms have hair dryers. A cot (without bed linen) is available on request, as is a high chair. The ground floor accommodation is disabled friendly.


When leaving the pier turn right and drive for one mile until you come to a T junction, turn left, drive past the Police Station and then turn immediately right onto the track between the house and the sheep pens. This leads past the end of a row of houses on your left and on towards An Sìthean at the end of the track.


An Sìthean is on a large fenced grassy plot with a shed for storage at the rear. Inside the fence there is parking at the front of the house for two cars. Decking, for which there is outdoor furniture stored in the shed, stretches the length of the house. There is a clothes pole and washing line. There is also a Pod on the site. This is entirely self-contained, not visible from inside the house and only for the use of the owners.


No smoking or pets.

Guests are asked to vacate the house by 10.00am to allow our housekeeper to have access to change beds etc in preparation for our new guests. We request that you leave the house as you would expect to find it.
