where we are ....

"The Coast road north is absolutely eyes on stalks beautiful. This is - and I will take no argument on the matter - by far the most beautiful place on earth."  Jeremy Clarkson while filming the Grand Tour in Assynt, Spring 2018 

Find us in the tiny highland village of Drumbeg, half way along the B869 coastal road, part of the 'famous' NC500 route. We are a perfect ‘stopping off’ point along the 23 mile single track road. Situated in the North West Highlands, you can find us on the part of the map where the land breathes magic and the sea starts to flow over the edge of the world. Surrounded by remote unspoiled white sand beaches, breathtakingly beautiful mountain scenery and magnificent coastal views.


Where do I Park?

There is free roadside parking available just across the main rd from us for cars, motorbikes and small camper vans, just follow our signs. Its a very short stroll from us.
