The Overscaig is an ideal base to explore all the attractions of the Northern Highlands – Caithness, Sutherland and Ross-shire. It is a wonderful area, rich in wildlife, birds, history & archaeology as well as being superb for outdoor pursuits such as walking and climbing.

Overlooking Loch Shin, The Overscaig House Hotel has gained an excellent reputation over many years as a traditional Sutherland fisherman’s haven with fishing rights on Loch Shin, Loch Ghriama and Loch Merkland all within a short distance from the hotel. With 6 boats available there are plenty of good drifts where you could find that record breaking trout and many believe that the British record will be broken by a trout from Loch Shin.
