Park House B&B

Park House is a Victorian style B&B in Lairg, Sutherland which has been welcoming country sports guests since opening in 1998. The owners began catering to country sports visitors to extend the season, with nearly 100% of guests in winter coming to take part in stalking & shooting.

The four star accommodation has VisitScotland Field Sports and Anglers Welcome scheme accreditation. Park House offers to arrange shooting, stalking and fishing for salmon and trout on private lochs during the season which runs May to September.

The B&B also offers to cook game shot or fish caught by guests, and updates its website with fishing and shooting reports throughout the season.
