Bettyhill is a charming little village with a couple of shops, a hotel restaurant and a café set on the coast amidst the unspoilt beauty of the rural Northern Highlands. In the heart of the village is the Strathnaver Museum (open from Apr to October) that has interesting exhibits explaining the history of the area and, in particular, the Mackay clan for those with family connections.

Unspoilt Scenery At Its Best
The village is on the North Coast 500 driving route that starts in Inverness and loops all the way around the beautiful coastline so it is ideally placed for touring on parts of the famous route that has become known by some as Scotland’s answer to Route 66.
A superb walk leads from nearby Invernaver along the wonderful stretch of sandy beach at Torrisdale Bay that is a popular spot for surfers who make the most of the powerful waves. The bay is very sheltered and secluded so visitors can often have the whole thing to themselves.
Nature enthusiasts will enjoy visiting the cliffs by the beach that have been designated as a SSSI (site of special scientific interest) due to the unusual woodland flora that can be found there.
