village of Scourie, once a Clan Mackay stronghold, lies at the centre
of the parish of Eddrachilles in North West Sutherland, and provides
an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding countryside.
An area famous for its remote rugged beauty, unspoilt by modern
development, but with good road connections to Inverness and the
East Coast, Scourie offers a wide range of services for visitors
to the area.
The village also claims to be the only one in the world where,
depending on the season of the year, you can see Palm Trees, Red
and Black Throated Divers and Highland Cattle, from the foreshore
of the bay.
Situated at the heart of Scotland's only Geopark and with a
landscape formed by glacial erosion and the passage of time, the
area presents a unique mixture of mountains, glens and moorland,
dotted with countless lochs and lochans, famous for the immense
diversity of brown trout fishing they provide for many visitors.
Escaping to the spectacular tranquillity of the North West Highlands,
dominated by the peaks of Foinaven, Arkle, Ben Stack, Quinag,
Suilven, Canisp & Ben More Assynt, is the perfect respite
from the stresses of modern living.
