The Overscaig House Hotel Information

Description

Situated in one of the last great wilderness areas of Europe, The Overscaig enjoys a magnificent location overlooking Loch Shin and Ben More Assynt. The Overscaig is an ideal base to explore all the attractions of the Northern Highlands, a landscape formed from the world's most ancient rock. An area rich in wildlife, birds, history & archaeology - superb for outdoor pursuits such as walking, cycling and fishing. Travel round the NC500 coastal route in sections using The Overscaig as your base, where you can relax each evening, and save yourself a series of one-night stops around the coast. Food plays an important role at The Overscaig with Highland Venison, Aberdeen Angus Beef and fresh Haddock from Kinlochbervie served in the bar or our quiet dining-room overlooking Loch Shin. A simple selection of fine wines will add to your enjoyment. Finish your meal with our home-made ice-cream, superb bread & butter pudding or delicious local cheeses. After dinner simply relax with coffee or liqueurs in our lounge, whilst preparing yourself for the following day’s Sutherland adventures. Our bar stocks an excellent range of Highland Malts and offers bar meals and snacks. The Overscaig is a small family run hotel with 8 rooms. Each is attractively furnished and has its own coffee/tea making facilities, as well as a TV and a DVD player. This is wonderful region to explore, if you do stay in and around the hotel, we have a comfortable lounge with TV, video and DVD player, as well as a good supply of books and games for quiet relaxation.
