“Very nice hotel - they welcome non-anglers too!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

A week in this lovely hotel in July - our second visit in fact, the first having been around 10 years ago. This is, first and foremost, a hotel for anglers, but non-fishing people like ourselves are more than welcome too! Patrick and Judy have pitched their welcome exactly right for people who spend their entire days outdoors, dodging the rain and the midges and trying to catch brown trout, which means that the hotel has been pitched exactly right for walkers, birdwatchers and others who spend a lot of time outdoors too. Oceans of hot water available right throughout the day. Good, honest food is served at dinner, and lots of it - you don't get 4 course meals in many other places nowadays. Generous breakfasts too, with very good coffee. Nice pub as well, with Scottish real ales on tap. And what a fantastically dog-friendly place too, with pets welcome to join their owners for coffee in the lounge after dinner. We noticed that there were lots of repeat visitors while we were there, and we can fully understand why. Hope to be back soon.

This was my fourth visit to he Scourie Hotel, I stayed for 5 nights in a single room at the end of June. As on previous visits there were large numbers of guests who visit this hotel regularly, this is no surprise in such a well run hotel.
First impressions are always important, the this hotel looks welcoming by virtue of a high standard of external decoration, and well tended gardens. Inside the extensive lounges are equally welcoming, and well furnished with comfortable armchairs and settees. There are two very pleasant bars, one at the rear used mainly by locals, and the residents bar adjacent to the lounge area. A very good selection of high quality beers and cider are on offer.
Most visitors seem to book dinner bed and breakfast, and this is not surprising as the 4 course table d'hote menu is excellent in quality and choice, and remarkably good value. The wine list is extensive and moderately priced.
So it is predictable that so many customers return, I will certainly be back next year.

We stayed for a weekend recently and had a fantastic break.

Staff were friendly, warm and could not do enough for us. Thanks to Patrick for lending us his fly box too.

The food and wine just hit the spot following a day on the lochs

This hotel is in Scourie village a great base for any fishing and walking holiday. The hotel is traditionally appointed and the rooms are simple but have everything you need. The owners and all staff are very helpful polite and are responsive to requests. Breakfasts in the dining room are excellent as is the four course evening meal. You can request pack lunches for day trips which is a very nice touch. You will be greatful for the great food at night as options for miles are limited. The hotel has a very snug lounge and there is an attached public bar. Many people come here for the excellent brown trout and salmon fishing and the hotel is geared for this, if you are not a fisher person and just like the out doors its great too. There are no tvs here and this is great too as it forces you to slow down and entertain yourself. Reading, conversation, board games etc. This hotel knows what it wants to be and it achieves it in spades. Love it.

This is the sixth time we have stayed at Scourie Hotel in recent years but our experience of it goes back over 40 years. If you are a fly fisherman and you want a really helpful, friendly and good accommodation look no further. Food is very good, lots of choice and perfect quantities after a day strolling the hills or drifting the Sutherland Lochs. A homely place for people and pets!

Room Tip: We like the annex with its own outside door, our friends liked the chalet but we don't really mi...

Scourie is the place to go for those looking to fish and walk in beautiful Highland scenery. Nowhere else will you find the after dinner conversations held at this hotel - no tvs, radio or "gadgets" ensures a warm, comfortable and very sociable evening by the fire with a dram or two and sharing stories of the day's events. Would recommend calling ahead to book the lobster platter which for a small supplement can be provided (depending on season) and is well worth the wait. Generally the food is very tasty and sufficient portions after a day's walking. Patrick and Judy your hosts could not be more welcoming and will furnish you will all the information and advice you will need to make the most of your stay.

I suspect like myself most people use this hotel as a one night stop over in the highlands. Scourie itself has nothing going for it but the hotel was a nice surprise. The staff were welcoming and the service very good. As there are no tvs in the rooms,guests mingle in the lounges and play games etc, it was a nice change. The food was surprisingly good too with a nice menu. All in all a stop over that was a pleasant surprise.
