Welcome to the Kinlochbervie website!A light-hearted account of what goes on in our tiny corner of the world.
|Kinlochbervie is the most northerly port on the west coast of Scotland, and virtually the last place you come to before falling into the sea. It is 60 miles from the nearest supermarket, the cinema arrives on the back of a lorry (as does the bank), and has been short-listed by the Oxford English Dictionary as a definition of the word 'Remote'.|
That being said, it is home to a variety of people from all walks of life. Some born here, others who have chosen to come and live here. Surrounded by thousands of acres of unspoiled highland countryside, wonderful beaches, and fascinating wildlife; even the weather is just a little bit different to the rest of Scotland!
