Taigh a’ Rudha, the Eventide Home in Scarinish, was opened in November 1968. It consists of the former manse for the United Free Church at Kirkapol and purpose-built accommodation for twelve residents.

This photograph shows the staff of Taigh a’ Ruadh in the kitchen in the mid-1980s. They are, from left to right, Cathy MacNeill, Elspeth Gilles, cook Rosie MacIntyre, Rena Goldie, Ishbel MacArthur, Officer in Charge Barbara MacDonald, Vickie MacLean and Flora MacArthur.

Today the kitchen provides Meals on Wheels to elderly people in the community and also lunches three days a week for the Day Centre in Crossapol.
