“Exceeded our expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2008

We booked this hotel based only on the information on its website. What we found on arrival was everything we'd hoped for and more.

The location is superb, with beautiful views over the bay which can be enjoyed from either the comfort of the delightful conservatory or from the walks in the hotel's extensive gardens.

The bedrooms have recently been refurbished and our room (No 1) was very tastefully decorated and furnished. The king sized bed was very comfortable indeed and the room was well equipped for the traveller. The bathroom was bright and modern with bath, powerful shower and ample soft towels.

The bar is cosy and relaxing, with a comprehensive selection of drinks on offer including draught beers and, being a Highland hotel, a huge range of malt whiskies.

The restaurant is a charming conversion of the original kitchen and scullery, retaining the original stone walls and flagstones, and provides the perfect ambience to enjoy the excellent quality of the cooking. The dinner menu is based on fresh local produce, expertly cooked and attractively presented. The food is complemented by an extensive list of very reasonably priced wines. The breakfast menu offered a range of choices from a full Scottish to local kippers, freshly cooked to order.

We regularly stay in a wide variety of hotels, for business or leisure, and rarely do we feel such pleasure and enthusiasm as we did on staying at the Eddrachilles. It exceeded our expectations in so many ways and we look forward to being able to make a return visit.

We certainly have no hesitation in recommending the Eddrachilles; we don't think you'll be disappointed.

I stayed here many years ago. I was not impressed this time. The bedroom was musty, the bed uncomfortable. Dinner was very disappointing but the wine ok. I didn't feel that the atmosphere was very hospitable.

On the plus side the views remain wonderful, there was a kind waitress, shame about everything else. Maybe I was just an unlucky customer?

We have just returned from a weekend in the Eddrachilles Hotel and enjoyed it enormously. The gorgeous situation of the hotel along with the friendly and helpful staff made it a weekend to remember. The quiet bar and conservatory were a pleasure to sit in and the selection of whiskeys second to none.
The room was extremely comfortable and after a couple of days walking in the rain and wind, the drying room came in very useful for our waterproofs and boots.
I have to also mention the delicious food served which went down a treat.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A small, seasonal Highlands hotel with a quality restaurant, and magnificent sea views overlooking Badcall Bay, in NW Sutherland. A place to escape to, a chance to experience the far North. Originally a church manse dating to the eighteenth century, the property was remodelled and sympathetically extended in the later twentieth century. It now provides a 10 bedroom (all ensuite) small hotel and restaurant. Owners since March 2016 Richard and Fiona are gradually putting their own stamp on Eddrachilles, while being careful not to change the simple, honest character of this charming but remote property. The main restaurant with original flagstone floors and stone walls, overlooks a courtyard garden. Here are served both table d'hôte and tasting menus prepared by our chefs from local fresh ingredients, including seafood bought directly from the boats in the bay, lamb from local crofts and venison from local estates. Our room-rates include a cooked to order delicious Highland breakfast and complimentary teas & coffees and munchies throughout your stay while lunches (seated or packed) and a more formal afternoon tea can be arranged for residents on request. Special diets, constraints, allergies and choices can be catered for with prior notice. The lounge and sun lounge look seaward and have an open fire and cosy wood burning stoves for those days and nights when the Highland weather is less inviting. The bar has a respectable malt whisky collection while local craft gins, beers and even vodkas offer an intriguing journey through the Tastes of the North. Eddrachilles is in one of Europe's last remaining wildernesses, at the heart of the NW Highlands Geopark and close to bird watchers' favourite Handa Island. There are opportunities for independent or expert guided hillwalking, fishing, mountaineering, sea kayaking and open canoeing, although it is best to book guides in advance. Well behaved pets are very welcome, and the hotel grounds provide pleasant walks to the shore for both two and four legged guests. The hotel can be found 2 miles south of village of Scourie, the hotel's driveway leads directly off the A894. Fiona and Richard look forward to welcoming you to Eddrachilles. ... more   less
