Scarabus, its current spelling, is an isolated farm about two miles north of Bridgend, roughly midway between the Lochs Skerrols and Cam. It is close to a burn that feeds into the River Drolsay on its meandering course from Glen Drolsay to Loch Skerrols and from there on into the north end of Lochindaal near Islay House.
