Where to Eat
There are several places to eat nearby and we've listed a few of them below. We do our best to keep the opening dates and times up to date but to be sure, we have included links to their websites to make it easy to make your own enquiries.
Most of them are on TripAdvisor so you can check them out there too.
The restaurants get very busy in the high season, so we recommend booking before you arrive if you can.
Likewise, many places operate shorter opening hours (or close completely) between October and the end of April,
so it's always a good idea to enquire ahead.
The Scourie Hotel is just a few minutes walk away and is open to non-residents from around Easter to the first week in October.
There are two options when eating here;
Option 1 is a 4 course dinner in a single sitting at 7.30pm so we recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment.
Option 2 is their Eagle Bar where they serve food in the evenings from 6.00pm until 8.30pm. They do not take bookings in the bar so you are able to walk in.
The Anchorage Cafe and Bar
The Anchorage cafe is also just a short walk away at the campsite and is open to all during the summer. They serve hot and cold food until 8.00pm and have a licensed bar.
The award winning Kylesku Hotel is 9 miles south of Scourie (IV27 4HW) and is open from Mid February to the end of November.
They specialise in seafood with the menu changing depending on what has been caught that day. They also have a good selection of other dishes with much of their meat and vegetables coming from local crofters. Booking ahead is recommended.
