Scottish Highlands Seaside Accommodation

The Scottish Highlands have miles and miles of beautiful, unspoilt coastline.  Seaside accommodation is abundant in the Highlands, and you can choose whether you would like to stay along the Moray Firth, the North Sea, the Pentland Firth, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Irish Sea!  As well, you can book accommodation all throughout the Western Isles, Lewis and Harris, the Orkney Islands, and Shetland—all providing you with exceptional seaside locations.  Whether you enjoy a rugged and rocky coastline or a sandy beach, you can find it in the Scottish Highlands.  And you can find virtually every type of accommodation along the sea, including hotels and inns, bed and breakfasts and guesthouses, self-catering cottages and lodges, campsites and caravan parks, and hostels.  Whatever you prefer, to whatever degree of service, you can find a lovely seaside accommodation here in the spectacular Scottish Highlands.

Hotel Hebrides on the Isle of Harris is a contemporary boutique-style hotel offering incredible seaside views in a luxury setting.  As well, the hotel has four self-catering cottages which overlook the village of Tarbert on Harris.  A great place for exploring Lewis and Harris, the Hotel Hebrides is one of the best seaside accommodations in the Scottish Highlands.  The Bunchrew House Hotel in Inverness-shire is located on the banks of the Beauly Firth.  A wonderful 17th century mansion built by the 8th Lord Lovat, this hotel is steeped in history and tradition.  Enjoy amazing architecture, service, and luxury all while taking in the seaside scenery.  Torvaig House Hotel is located on the beautiful Isle of Skye, and it provides daily yachting excursions for its guests.  For a one-of-a-kind experience, enjoy a stay at Torvaig House Hotel. 

If you prefer something a little smaller, then consider a seaside bed and breakfast or guesthouse.  There is no shortage of either one here in the Scottish Highlands.  Known for excellent hospitality and service, a bed and breakfast or guesthouse along the Highland coast may be the ideal accommodation for your Highland holiday.  Alt Na Craig House in Oban is situated in a lovely turreted Victorian house with views across Oban Bay to the islands.  There are six deluxe bedrooms, all en suite, furnished to the highest standards, with all the luxury amenities provided.  The Old Mill Guesthouse on Mull has stunning views, as well, and has three en suite bedrooms.  It used to be a millers’ croft house and has been refurbished to excellent standards.  It is an ideal base for touring Mull.  Glebe End is a small but spacious Victorian villa in Nairn with views over the Moray Firth.  Enjoy a round of golf on the nearby links while you are there.  The Love Croft Guest House in Wester Ross has incredible views over to the Summer Isles and also offers fabulous evening meals.  Vayetie bed and breakfast near Lochinver sports spectacular views over Lochinver Bay and Suilven Mountain—the best of both worlds!  On the east coast of Sutherland and up into Caithness there are many seaside guesthouses and bed and breakfasts, as well. 

Not only can you find excellent hotels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses along the Highland coast, but you can even find castle accommodation.  Stay in grand style, surrounded by history, and with views out over the sea as well.  Glengorm Castle on Mull, and Barcaldine Castle in Oban are just two such places.  Enjoy magnificent views and superb accommodation all in one.

For something a bit more primitive, why not stay in a seaside campsite or caravan park.  Dornoch offers a very popular park, Grannie’s Heilan’ Hame, right along the Dornoch Firth coast.  You can choose from campsite or static caravan accommodation, and the park boasts impressive views of both the sea and the mountains.  Nairn Lochloy is a caravan park nestled right amongst the sand dunes along the Moray Firth coastline, and it has a marina, a golf course, and an indoor pool.  The great thing with caravan parks and campsites all along the Highland coast is that you can choose the degree of amenities.  At Craickaig Farm in Sutherland, there is a campsite which folks return to again and again.  The only amenities available are a small toilet block.  Otherwise, it’s just you and the beach!

Of course, there is no end to the self-catering seaside accommodation in the Scottish Highlands.  Whether you wish a view of the Hebrides, the Orkney Islands across the Pentland Firth, or the wide open North Sea, you can find a cottage, chalet, lodge, or holiday house to suit your needs.  The Highlands are absolutely filled with holiday homes.  Stay on a working farm or atop a remote seaside cliff.  Choose to lodge in a quaint seaboard village or a refurbished croft house.  Whatever you are looking for in self-catering accommodation, it is guaranteed to be available somewhere in the stunning Scottish Highlands
