Eddrachilles Hotel in North West Sutherland is the perfect setting for winter getaways, spring breaks or summer holidays.
Eddrachilles Hotel is 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 Badcall and Eddrachillis Bays, this former 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 gradually putting their own stamp on this hotel and restaurant, with the emphasis on a warm welcome, Highland hospitality and good service throughout your visit.
The hotel is open for its summer season April to end October and then re-opens mid in November for the winter season which ends in mid March.
The hotel has beautiful sea views and is set in several acres of gardens. lt appeals particulalry 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 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 and the majority can be configured as either twin or superking double beds. A few can also accommodate a cot or small toddler bed but none are suitable for an additional adult bed. Children are therefore very welcome but we are unable to offer family rooms.
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. Free WiFi is provided in our public areas but as the internet provider is satellite based, the service is slow and basic. There is also no 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 include a cold buffet of cereals, fruit salad, compote, yoghurts plus an assortment of breads 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, venison charcuterie from the prize winning Great Glen Charcuterie, our full grill, and poached smoked haddock or a kipper. Our vegan menu includes freshly prepared smoothies, nut butters, nut curd cheeses, cereals and speciality porridge.
For dinner in the summer season 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 also welcome to book a table in our restaurant. In our winter season, with longer nights and fewer alternatives open, we offer an inclusive Dinner, Bed and Breakfast rate with a comforting, hearty 3 course dinner prepared from fresh ingredients by the chef-proprietor. In both seasons children are very 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 always happy to cater for allergies, dietary constraints and choices but we do ask for notification in advance. In our remote locaiton, supplies can be impossible to arrange at short notice.
Eddrachiles is place to stay and relax and we offer our guests significant progressive 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.
Fiona and Richard Trevor look forward to welcoming you to the Eddrachilles Hotel.
