The Area and Attractions

 

Stonechats Croft is a working croft and ideally situated in the Scottish Highlands for outdoor pursuits.. We are situated in Badcall, a small crofting village in the parish of Eddrachilles in North West Sutherland. Famous for its remoteness and unsurpassed rugged beauty and solitude. Sutherland is a mixture of majestic mountains, jagged coastline, glens and moorland, ideal for the walkers in the family. There are also many Lochs for the fisherman within walking distance. The Croft's land extends to the edge of the Atlantic which is ideal for the Sea Angler and Kayaker. A big plus if you are a kayaker is the fact that you can leave your kayak on your own foreshore ready for your next trip.

Nearby
The village of Scourie is a mile and half away and has a supermarket which is also an Off-Licence. At the Garage you can buy your fishing permits and camping equipment. 10 minutes away is Tarbet where you will find the Shorehouse Seafood Restaurant run by Jackie and Julian Pearce where prawns, crab and lobster caught by Julian and his son Adam on their own boat the Fulmar provide the shellfish for the restaurant.

Fishing
Fish for wild brown trout in some of the finest lochs, amidst the stunning scenery of Assynt.
Sutherland is also renowned for its excellent wild brown trout fishing and you will find endless fly fishing opportunities in the hundreds of small spate rivers, streams, lochs and lochans. Some of the waters are easily accessible and others take a fair bit of effort to reach on foot, but they all hold hard fighting wild Scottish brown trout. There is a local angling club for brown trout in Scourie with access to over 30 lochs.

Game Angling
Badcall, Scourie is an ideal getaway for all game anglers to go fishing for these wild brown trout and every year wild monsters in the 4lb to 7lb range are caught, providing a challenge for anglers of all abilities! The lochs and rivers of Scourie formed the setting for the recent television programme. 'Nick Hancock's Fishing School' which followed the progress of six fishing novices as they learned the art of fly fishing for trout.
Salmon fishing is also available in the area and permits can be obtained locally, as can Permits to fish the lochs.

Sea Fishing is also fantastic in this area, with some monster skate caught from the shore and great mackerel fishing spinning off the rocks. Evening Sea Fishing trips are also available limited to 4 rods at a cost of £15 per person.

Biking in Scotland is very popular and the west coast of Scotland is a favourite with bikers. With its beautiful scenery and twisted roads Sutherland is ideal for the biker.

Atlantic Sea Kayaking
The west coast of Scotland is a stunning place to visit and has some of the best natural locations for canoeing and kayaking in the world and Sutherland is one of the most amazing sea kayaking areas on the west coast of Scotland.
Our accommodation at Badcall Bay is only 100 metres away from our own beach on the Atlantic. This is ideal for the kayakers as they can leave their kayaks on their own foreshore ready for their next kayaking trip.
This really is the perfect place to sample sea kayaking for the first time or for the more experienced to develop your skills further.

Daily Cruises from Scourie starting mid April running through mid September are operated by Mr Ken Nash, Scourie Boats, Scourie, Sutherland. Tel. 01971 502011.

Walking, Hiking and Climbing
For the walker and climber there is a wide variety of options. The higher mountains and munro's are within easy reach, while from our croft one can walk and enjoy the deserted beaches and wild rugged scenery of the hills, rocks and thousands of small lochs set in a landscape which has remained unaltered for thousands of years.

Handa Island - ideal for Birdwatchers
