the heart of

the north coast



For rest, relaxation and a sanctuary by the sea, look no further than the Melvich Hotel.


Although we've made the hotel our home since 2007, the Melvich Hotel has been a favourite with water sportsmen since Victorian times. Overlooking the headland and a stone’s throw from the excellent salmon fishing on the Halladale River, discerning fishermen, colonial visitors and minor royalty alike have been enjoying its warm hospitality since the 1800's - as you will read in the original guest books you can find in our resident's lounge. Today, however, the beautiful north coast is even more attractive (and accessible!) with world class surf breaks, fantastic climbing and walking nearby, salmon and trout fishing in the local lochs and rivers, not to mention the wide open beaches just waiting for exploration.

With one grand refurb under our belts during 2007-2010, we are taking some time this winter to rethink, rework, repaint and refurb the public areas of the hotel. A new look for our coastal home, but especially important, we are hugely excited to be launching our very own Melvich Hotel wood-fired Pizzeria just in time for the 2017 season - delicious wood fired pizzas made with the best of local ingredients.

Nestled in the centre of the coast, Melvich is ideal for those discovering the North Coast 500 route or just looking for a few days of rest and relaxation in Sutherland & Caithness. So get the map out, plot your itinerary (feel free to contact us for any tips or advice - we know the road quite well) and find your way north to Melvich. We're looking forward to welcoming all to the hotel and plan to ensure those visiting in 2017 will find the same warm hospitality enjoyed by those intrepid guests in 1850.

// Open daily from 3pm // 

Food served 6pm til 9pm (Sundays: takeaway only 6.30pm til 7.30pm)
