A small uninhabited island in the Western Isles, Scaravay (Gael: Sgarabhaigh) lies in the Sound of Harris, 4 miles (6 km) off the northeast coast of North Uist. The island rises to 23m (75 feet). Privately owned, associated ownership packages were offered to the public on a commercial basis in 2004. Silver sixpences are also produced, based on the design of a King James VI coin. One of these Sgarabhaigh Sixpences was deposited with the national coin collection at the British Museum in London in 2012.
