Nicola Sturgeon has moved to stem a flood of people travelling to the Highlands trying to "outrun" the coronavirus by barring them taking ferries to the islands and telling all accommodation providers to stop accepting visitors.

The First Minister said all hotels, bed-and-breakfasts and self-catering providers should only be housing staff and essential workers, amid fears local rural hospitals could collapse under the pressure.


​Ach Da Thearnaidh (Gaelic for, ‘the place between two descents’) B&B is set in two acres of mixed woodland and tendered gardens, reached from a single track road just over five miles from Poolewe and the North Coast 500. 


We are a friendly family-run B&B proud of our stunning views of Loch Ewe and surrounding mountain ranges. Our tranquil and well-kept grounds provide guests with the opportunity to relax.


The house is the former home of Kay Mathieson one of four students who broke into Westminster Abbey on Christmas Eve 1950 to remove the famous Stone of Destiny returning it to its native Scotland. You can read more about the history of the Stone of Destiny in our About page.


There is a lot to keep every type of visitor busy with the many attractions in the area, from ornate beautiful botanical gardens to marine wildlife tours and stunning mountain wilderness to the coastal town of Gairloch.
