The Scourie Hotel & Restaurant

The Scourie Hotel is located in Sutherland, north of Ullapool, on Scotlands rugged West Coast on the site of an old fortified house looking towards the sheltered waters and white sands of Scourie bay.

The hotel was originally a coaching inn built by the Duke of Sutherland. The history dates back to the 17th Century. As a hotel we have been attracting fishing enthusiasts from far and wide for over 170 years, earning a much-deserved reputation as a first class sporting destination.

Below the hotel in the shieling (a Scottish word for a summer dwelling or seasonal pasture high in the hills) nestle the gable-stepped houses of Scourie village. Beyond spreads the famed uninhabited area of Western Sutherland, a landscape of lochs and Mountains rising into a wilderness sky. When the hotel was formerly an inn back in the 1800’s, we were home to the great Scottish Naturalist Charles St. John who stayed in the 1840’s.

Now the hotel is slightly larger, we offer superb accommodation to match the scenery and a comfortable place to rest after exploring all the area has to offer or a great day’s fishing. The wonderful new North Coast 500 route tracks right by our front door, too, as it journeys south along the west coast.
