Drumbeg hotel is situated in the tranquil village of Drumbeg, surrounded by the magnificent scenery of the Assynt District in the North West Highlands of Scotland
Run by owners Dawn and Robin Dalton, this six bedroom hotel enjoys a privileged position in the village and offers guests stunning views over Loch Drumbeg.
Drumbeg, to use the title of Hardy’s famous novel, is, “Far from the Madding Crowd,” and offers visitors a complete escape from all the pressures of modern living.
Located midway between Kylesku and Lochinver, along one of the most scenic stretches of road in Scotland, you are as likely to meet red deer as other roadusers. This quiet, single track road, (with ample passing places), overlooks the sea where the North Minch meets the mighty Atlantic Ocean. The traveller enjoys excellent views of Eddrachilles Bay and the beautiful beaches of Clachnessie, Clachtoll and Achmelvich, with the mountain bulk of Quinag and Suilven, providing a dramatic backdrop.
Drumbeg is surrounded by numerous long, deserted, sandy beaches to explore, dramatic cliff top vistas to marvel at and countless hill walks to discover and enjoy
You are quite likely to have whichever delights you take in, all to yourselves
Drumbeg is home to myriad species of birds and wildlife for visitors to discover. Just remember to bring your cameras and binoculars. A short trip north from Drumbeg lies the island of Handa, a bird sanctuary and nature reserve, famous for its sea-bird colonies.
For those guests looking something more structured, the many lochs round Drumbeg are an excellent choice for Trout Fishing. We can arrange fishing permits in advance, or you can buy them from us when you arrive here.
Deer stalking & Boat Hire can also be arranged through the
Assynt Crofters Trust
who now have their own office in Stoer (next to the village hall).
For the more adventurous guests, there are many climbing routes in the area to suit both experienced and novice climbers.
Anyone with an interest in Geology will find that the rock structure of Assynt is one of the oldest and most interesting in Europe and Drumbeg is situated within what is the first Geological Park in Scotland.
