Excellent stay at the Overscaig: comfortable room, great meal and drinks in the well stocked bar. The residents lounge was a very cosy place for our night cap. Superb breakfast in dining room overlooking the loch.

The Overscaig House Hotel sits at the heart of Sutherland in the Northern Highlands of Scotland and our guests enjoy the peace and tranquility of its wonderful location overlooking Loch Shin. We have 8 ...More modern en-suite bedrooms, all of which have tea & coffee trays, Freesat TV & DVD and most have loch views. You can enjoy locally sourced cuisine in our loch view dining room, read a book in our comfortable lounge or simply have a drink in the bar. Within easy reach of the coast and the NC500 this is an ideal base from which to explore everything from Inverness to John O'Groats and Cape Wrath. Less
