"The tiny village of Bettyhill" Tongue Off The Beaten Path Tip by scottishvisitor
Tongue Off The Beaten Path: 6 reviews and 24 photos
The original village was called Farr but after the clearance of both Rossal and Farr its name changed to Bettyhill. A rather strange name for a village sitting on the most northern coast of Scotland. The village was a replacement village built not to house the Highlanders but at the whim of the Duchess of Sutherland and another extention of the Sutherland Estates which she named after her self. Today it is a pretty little place with crofting and tourism being the main stay of its economy. Its best feature has to be Farr campsite and Farr Beach. The local school here has an indoor swimming pool which is open to the public. The village has a shop and a hotel, both offer eating opportunities for the visitor and the locals alike. A nice quiet place to visit on a sunny day - take some bread with you and feed the ducks, they don't get many visitors and they did get a bit excited when we stopped by.
