Bettyhill is a rural village on the west-coast in the Highlands of Scotland situated at the head of the Strathnaver Valley, in the remote Sutherland County, with the villages of Tongue to the west and Melvich to the east. The area has been inhabited by ancient settlements, in the graveyard stands a Pictish cross dating from c800 and there are archaeological sites with finds of Pictish stones and a Bronze-Age beaker; now housed in the Strathnaver Museum. Bettyhill was originally a fishing and crofting village and from the 11th century the traditional homeland of the dominant historical clan Mackay, the area is still referred to as ‘Mackay Country’. Bettyhill has been a popular tourist destination since Victorian times with the Salmon fishing in the River Naver, the two Munros, Ben Hope and Ben Clebrig and Smoo Cave. The Bettyhill Hotel was built in 1819 with views west over Torrisdale Bay with beautiful remote beaches suitable for surfing. Other activities include cycling, walking, nature-watching, the Borgie Forest Nature Trail, the Torridale Trekking Centre and Reay and Durness Golf Course, day trips to Orkney and John O’Groats operate from Skerry pier and nearby the North Coast Leisure facility has a gym and swimming pool,
