Leave your heart in the Highlands

Experience a warm Highland welcome

Family-owned, our Bed & Breakfast is set amidst stunning scenery in the far North West Highlands on the NC500. All our rooms are en-suite and have been stylishly and individually furnished. Guests have the use of a smart, spacious and comfortable guest lounge with fantastic loch views and our fabulous Highland Bar – No. 4. which is also open to non-residents.


Explore the majestic scenery

Venture out and explore. Rugged mountains. A stunning coastline. Golden beaches and crystal-clear water. Prepare to be amazed by this idyllic scenery and its savage beauty. The open spaces of Sutherland are a tonic for the senses. Have a holiday to remember in this true Highland wilderness. Kylesku, a couple of miles away, offers boat trips to the seal colony and the highest waterfall in Britain and a great restaurant overlooking Loch Glendhu.


The West Coast of Scotland

Renowned for its outdoor activities. Walk. Hill climb. Kayak. Fish. Cycle. Drive. You can do it all here. Want a challenging climb? There are two Munros in the area and several Corbetts, including neighbouring Quinag. Prefer something more easy-going? Take a leisurely stroll along one of the many golden sandy beaches. Enjoy a scenic drive around the routes hugging the coastline and witness some of the wildest and most dramatic scenery found anywhere in the UK.


A paradise for wildlife

The birdlife and animals roaming wild are a great attraction. Otters. Eagles. Stags. There’s even a common seal colony and breeding grounds right on our doorstep, in the loch below Newton Lodge. Watch them via binoculars from the lounge or take a pair out with you and wait and see what happens. We would love to know what you have spotted.


UNESCO Global Geopark

One of more than 150 worldwide, this protected area tells the story of a unique landscape and geological heritage. 3 billion years of rock formations – the oldest to be found anywhere in Europe and containing the earliest evidence of life. Visit The Rock Stop Café for more information on this fascinating subject and marvel at the view.

Frequently Asked Questions

We hope you have all the information you need, but just in case, please see our full Terms and Conditions.

How to Find Us

Please note that although our address comes under the post town of Lairg, we are not in Lairg which is on the East Coast, but near Kylesku on the West Coast. It takes approximately 2 hours to drive from Inverness and the quickest way is via Ullapool.

From Ullapool, go north on the A835 until you reach Elphin. On the other side of Elphin, you will come to the Ledmore Junction. Turn left towards Kylesku on the A837. The next turning will be a junction on the right, just past Ardvreck Castle (a ruin). This is the A894. Take this road and continue. Once you see the turning to Drumbeg on your left, we are a few hundred metres further along on the right-hand side, where you will see the sign for Newton Lodge at the end of the drive – This is a stag head on a white background.

Mainline train services operate to Inverness. There is a bus service running from Inverness to Durness once a day during the main season and stops at the top of the road to the Kylesku Hotel. The nearest airport is Inverness.

We understand how important it is to stay connected, but whilst we have an Internet Service/WIFI at Newton Lodge, please be aware that access here can be challenging due to our location as we do not yet have the benefit of a fibre connection. We have been on a satellite, but with the advent of EE in the area, we are currently trialling a new 4G router.
Whilst this new system should provide a better connection, it is not an unlimited provision as you may be used to at home and can run out if overused. As such, we kindly request that you do not download content (music, movies, photographs, TV, etc) as we may reach our capacity too early and run out of data.
As a community, we are trying to find a solution, but in the meantime, we thank you very much for your understanding. It is one of the 21st Century challenges of this beautiful and remote location.
What else is in the area

We have plenty of information about things to do in the area, including maps, so we will do everything we can to help you to get the most out of your stay. If you have any requests that will make your stay more enjoyable, such as pre-booking local boat trips, that we can organise ahead of time, please let us know.

Payment Policy

A deposit equivalent to one night’s stay is required to secure your reservation. We accept payments by credit, debit card, or electronic bank transfer. The balance of your booking is payable on the evening before your departure by cash, debit or credit card. For group bookings of 3 rooms or more, we will require full payment for the accommodation 3 months prior to arrival.
