Sutherland - Balnagown Highland Estate Luxury Retreats

Skip main menu


Sutherland is one of the least populated areas of the UK, with a typically rugged landscape of mountain, moorland, forest and, on its westerly and northern sides, an intricate coastline of sea lochs and rocky headlands. It is truly a beautiful county, with much to see and do for the visitor – provided they like the outdoors that is!

The county town of Sutherland is Dornoch, which is also a Royal Burgh, is located on the coast in the south east corner of the county. It is a very picturesque town, and in many ways the architecture and stone colour is more reminiscent of a Cotswold town than one in the Scottish Highlands. Further up the coast there are the villages of Golspie, Brora and Helmsdale, which are certainly all worth a visit.

On the west coast the main villages are Lochinver, Scourie and Kinlochbervie, and on the north coast Tongue and Durness. Inland there are few villages of any size – which is of course part of the appeal of this amazing county – but there is Bonar Bridge, which is on the north side of the Kyle of Sutherland, and Lairg further north of that.

To best enjoy Sutherland, its varied landscape and different villages on the east, west and north coasts, a relatively central location is ideal – and both the Invercassley and Duchally Estates are central to the county. At Invercassley located just outside the small village of Rosehall there is Inveroykel Lodge which sleeps up to 10 people.
