We enjoyed a delightful lunch at the new Cafe & Restaurant in Diabeg. The journey was a treat in itself with some terrific views of upper Loch Torridon. Lunch was home made soup, fish platter and a pint of Light Ness from the Loch Ness Brewery. You have got to make the journey - you will not be disappointed. Go to for menus and opening times

A new year and two significant additions to Greenhill.

After that long day in the hills wouldn't be great to have a hot shower and then a sauna to heat up. Well this is now possible. We now have an infrared sauna. It was built in Finland and can accommodate  two people who know each other quite well. It has a drop down CD player to help you relax with your favourite tunes.

We continue to make the Steading a useful space. We already have a wood fired oven, pool table and sofa. We thought it would be good to have a stove, but no ordinary stove, one that can be used to cook on. It was used for the first time to cook breakfast on 2 January. It worked very well. The steading is not insulated so it does not heat the place up but it does help. However, it will be great for summer evenings when it gets cooler and for some spring and autumn days.

Cape Wrath Trail

Greenhill is on the Cape Wrath Trail

Britain’s toughest trail…

At well over 200 miles in length and crossing some of Scotland's wildest and most beautiful country, the Cape Wrath Trail is the expedition of a lifetime.

This is a classic long distance walk across the most remote and barren country in Britain. The route starts at Fort William, follows the Great Glen before heading off to Glen Garry, Glen Shiel before diving in to the wilderness of the big glens of Affric and Mullardoch before bursting out at Strathcarron. Torridon and Ullapool (via the ferry) are passed before the route passes through the higher lands of Sutherland before scuttling along the coast, past Sandwood Bay to Cape Wrath.
