Hushinish slipway with view of Scarp
|Post town:||Isle of Harris|
|Na h-Eileanan an Iar|
Hushinish is a remote place on the west coast of Harris in Inverness-shire. It lies at the end of a 12-mile-long single-track B road. The settlement is of only four houses overlooking a white sandy beach with views to the Atlantic. Nearby, and to the north, lies the uninhabited island of Scarp, the location of an experimental rocket postal service in the 1930s.
The name Hushinish is derived from Old Norse and means "house headland".
