Bettyhill



Bettyhill is a small Scottish Highland town lying on the Northern coastline.

Is is a quiet town open to the sea and has a wildness all of its own. Historically Bettyhill gets its name from the infamous Elizabeth 1st Duchess of Sutherland who with her husband was responsible for the “clearances” of 1814 and 1819.

During these “clearances” tenant crofters were evicted from the land forcing many to emigrate. Thus Bettyhill and the surrounding area are of historical significance to those tracing their ancestors.

Today Bettyhill is a peaceful seaside town where many holidaymakers come to fish, relax and take in the beauty of the wild wide open spaces.
