Your perfect setting on the coast of NW Sutherland for spring breaks, summer holidays or an autumn get away in 2021. Life affirming landscapes, cosy and comfortable accommodation and food that celebrates local Scottish produce. A small owner-operated hotel with 10 bedrooms, accredited 3 Star from Visit Scotland, Eddrachilles has a flair for thoughtful and generous Highland hospitality. Good food, a quality wine list, and a well stocked bar featuring many local whiskies, gins and craft beers - who wouldn't want to settle by the fireside and relax.
Please note that Eddrachilles Hotel will not be opening in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We will re-open on 2 April 2020 and look forward to welcoming our guests.
The hotel is located approximately 2 miles south of the village of Scourie or 40 miles north of Ullapool with a driveway leading from the A894 - part of the NC500.
Standing proudly overlooking an island studded bay, this former Church of Scotland manse and later genteel private home, was completely reconfigured in the later part of the 20th century as a small Highland House hotel with 10 bedrooms. Owners Richard and Fiona Trevor have owned Eddrachilles since March 2016 and are steadily putting their own stamp on this hotel and restaurant while still retaining its authentic charm.
The hotel has beautiful sea views and is set in several acres of tranquil grounds with an informal garden leading directly to the shore lt appeals equally to outdoor enthusiasts, North Coast 500 adventurers, and those simply seeking tranquility in Nature. Handa Island is nearby for bird watchers (April to early September), while some of the finest hillwalking and sailing are on our doorstep. The hotel is both close to the half way mark of the NC500 and also at the heart of the North West Highlands Geopark, a perfect point from which to explore the Pebble Routes, a collection of short trips which explore the region and the local communities. It's also lovely country for dogs and Eddrachilles welcomes well-behaved dogs (a small charge is made per visit for each dog).
With centuries of history, Eddrachilles provides traditional comfortable and cosy accommodation rather than a spacious and opulently furnished rooms. All bedrooms have ensuite bath or shower rooms. Four ground floor rooms can be configured as either twin or superking double beds. The first floor rooms have King sized double beds. A few rooms can accommodate an infant cot but although children are very welcome, we are unable to offer family rooms and there are no rooms suitalble for an additonal bed.
The lounge and sun lounge have wood burning stoves making them snug places in which to relax, play board games, read books, or sample our well stocked Taste of the North bar. Standard teas and coffee are served free of charge on request in the lounges to resident guests throughout the day and complimentary cakes and scones are also served from 4pm each day. Free WiFi is provided in our public areas, reasonable quality but not as fast as you will find in city centres. There is also very little mobile phone connection in the hotel. As a goodwill gesture to assist guests, we do not charge for UK calls to standard landlines or mobile numbers made from the hotel's bedroom phones and international calls are only charged at cost.
Breakfasts at the Eddrachilles typically offer a choice of cereals, fresh fruit salad, berru compote, yoghurts plus toast and muffins. The main feature is, however, our freshly cooked to order hot menu which includes smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, porridge with cream and Drambuie, the Laird's grill, and poached smoked haddock or French toast. Our vegan menu may include freshly prepared smoothies, nut butters, nut curd cheeses, cereals and speciality porridge. A takeaway breakfast option is available for those keen to make the very most of our long summer days.
Our chefs cook from fresh, and where possible, local ingredients and use both classic and modern techniques to produce a refined, modern Scottish Table d'Hôte menu which changes each day. However, recognising that many guests will use the long summer days of the North to explore far and wide, we offer a B&B rate with priority for dinner reservations in our restaurant. Non-residents are usually welcome to book a table in our restaurant although this is subject to covid-19 guidance. Children are welcome and those under 12 will be invited to discuss their preferences with the chef and agree a personal menu.
As we cook from fresh we are able to cater for allergies, medical, religious and life choice diets but we do ask for notification in advance. In our remote locaiton, supplies can be impossible to arrange at short notice.
Eddrachiles is perfect setting for a relaxed vacation and we offer our guests significant discounts on multiple nights. We also provide a small discount for each return visit over a 10 year period and there are special offers advertised on our website and Facebook page. Single occupancy, group and exclusive use rates are also available. Please contact the hotel to discuss.
Fiona and Richard Trevor look forward to welcoming you to the Eddrachilles Hotel
