A nice little spot to stop for coffee. Friendly staff and a good coffee machine that makes very strong coffee! Lovely home made cakes.

Not many eating places in these parts, but this one is worth a visit before you attack the NC500 again. We just had sandwiches and burgers etc., with a humungous pot of tea between four. The seats are a bit tired, but Hay-Ho, it's probably 300 miles to the nearest IKEA !. Lovely views overlooking Scourie Bay.

We ate here twice for lunch. The seafood was great and the service was excellent. It is in a lovely setting on the shore to go to hand a island. They also do great cakes and hot chocolate and coffees.

All I can say about the Anchorage is that the food is good. Fresh Haddock good fries. Very good Sirloin as well. Staff is friendly.

Came across this lovely little place en-route if you are doing the North 500. There was a nice menu of Daily Specials to choose from. We called in for lunch and enjoyed the plentiful food which was served quickly and courteously.

We stopped off here on the way from Ullapool to Durness. Lovely little place with basic but good quality menu, and decent coffee / tea. Just up the road from the Spar store, so another good excuse to stop if you're touring.

My family and I went here on 3 occasions recently as we were on holiday in the area. The Anchorage sits next to the Scourie Caravan Park on the main A894 with views over the harbour with a car parking area for a good number of cars - or bikes! It's popular with tourists who are biking their way through... More
