Around the Area

Staying at Hill Cottage you will enjoy some of Scotland's finest scenery untouched by time.

Situated 3 miles off the A894, 3 miles north of Scourie, Hill Cottage enjoys a feeling of isolation. However it is only one mile from Tarbet. Here the seasonal boat to Handa Island departs and there is a Seafood restaurant and public phone box. The nearest Shop, Hotel and Petrol station are in Scourie. Larger shopping and Tourist information are available in Lairg and Ullapool while Kinlochbervie, Durness, and Cape Wrath are all within easy driving. Hill Cottage is approximately 2 and a half hours drive north of Inverness through some of Scotland's most stunning scenery. Be alert as sheep and deer may well stray onto the road as you pass.

Hill Cottage is the ideal base for bird watching, Handa Island being a world renowned nature reserve and seabird colony managed by the Scottish Wildlife Trust. Walkers and Cyclists can explore the local area and Beach lovers are spoilt for choice. It is ideally situated for Sea Kayaking and Fishing. Permits are available locally in Scourie and there are numerous lochans to choose from. Anyone wanting a sense of isolation and getting away from it all will relish the cottage's location.
