Scalpay has two natural harbours - the North and South harbours - which provided safe anchorage to the island's once substantial fishing fleet and continue to do so today for local boats and the many visiting yachts. Bannatyne House overlooks the South Harbour. The island also has many small lochans. The largest of these is Loch an Duin (Loch of the Fort). The island also enjoys an abundance of wildlife: birds, otters, seals and much more, try sea kayaking around the island with the Scaladale centre!
The island was also known to generations of sailors as the Glass Isle, hence the name of the island's lighthouse - Eilean Glas - the first to be built in the Outer Hebrides. It is still accessible via a glorious walk over the moors, to the peninsula on the eastern shore. Enjoy further walk...

There are however bus services including a bus stop a short walk from Bannatyne House with buses to Tarbert (stopping at a few places along the way) with onward buses to Leverburgh and Stornoway, respectively, with various stops on the way.
