We look forward to welcoming you to Pondside, where our aim is to create a peaceful relaxed atmosphere where you can truly unwind.  Situated in the heart of Sutherland and surrounded by unspoilt, natural stunning landscapes, it is the perfect base camp to retreat to after an unforgettable days exploring.  We are also ideally located for the famous North Coast 500 and if you are lucky enough you may even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.

We offer a self contained flat as well as our camping field where you really are at one with the nature of the land.  


Sutherland makes up a significant portion of the North Coast 500 and is often broken in to two sections; North West Sutherland and East Sutherland. Both beautiful areas, but each offers something completely different!

North West Sutherland covers a large portion of unspoilt, natural landscapes with the world famous beaches of Sandwood Bay and Achmelvich being two of the most notable features.

The mountain ranges are quite spectacular, bringing together the peculiar 'Policeman's Helmet' shaped Suilven and the mountainous tops of Ben More, Foinaven and Arkle. Walk Highlands provides a great resource for anyone looking to explore these.  
The North-west side is also home to Cape Wrath, the North West Highlands Geopark and many many more delights that you must consider for your NC500 itinerary.

The east coast of Sutherland offers a treat when it comes to golfing. The home of the famous Royal Dornoch Golf Course and quality courses nearby in both Golspie and Brora, the east of Sutherland certainly is a worth-while stop for any golf fan.

Sutherland is also home to the fairly-tale castle of Dunrobin. The seat of the Earl and Clan of Sutherland, Dunrobin Castle is perched on the coast of Golspie and is surrounded by the stunning gardens and falconry which is worth a visit on their own!

With so much to see and do - where will you start?  One thing is for sure Pondside is the ideal base!
