Discover Something for Everyone
There is far more to Sutherland than its terrific Game Fishing alone. Easily accessible from Scourie Hotel is Handa Island, an ornithological delight. The area is also a mecca for Geologists and visitors, with waterfalls four times higher than Niagara.
You will discover gentle walks for the young or less energetic. There are strenuous hikes for the more adventurous. For many, the magnificent scenery and chance to walk in the deserted, rugged landscape is too much to resist and sees them returning year after year.
Couples can enjoy a romantic break staying in one of our lovely rooms. Add in the experience of great dining and an extensive selection of wines. During the day you can do as much or as little as you wish. Scourie has become the ‘get away from it all’ secret for many couples.
Fishing trips, walking weeks, a photography group (for our wildlife and scenery – bring your camera) and an art and drawing course. With the Campbell’s arrival we are re-innovating our programme of special courses to include art, photography and crafts based on objects found whilst beach-combing. Specifics on all of this can be supplied. Please contact us for further details.
Our mountains and dramatic landscapes have drawn people to stalk in this part of Scotland for centuries. This skilful tradition is as old as the peaks themselves and attracts guests back year after year. For more information please contact us.

The island is only accessible by ferry from Tarbet.

The Scourie area is world famous for its very special rocks and geology, when you are here you are in the cradle of Geology and the essential rock features can be seen from the paths. Much of the area you are walking over has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
