Home / Locations / Lairg


With just under 900 people, Lairg is one of the largest settlements in Scotland not on the coast and accessed by the Far North line which links Inverness with Thurso and Wick in Caithness.

The beautiful village of Lairg is nestled on the southern shores of Loch Shin and used to be known as the crossroads to the North.
