| Events in Ardgay | 10 Places to Stay

Ardgay is a village in the Sutherland area in the northern Highlands of Scotland, situated 40 miles north of Inverness at the entrance to Strathcarron, at the head of the Dornoch Firth. Ardgay sits to the south of the village of Bonar Bridge. To the north of Ardgay stands Carbisdale Castle, now a youth hostel, was once the site of the historic Battle of Carbisdale was fought in 1650. Strathcarron was one of the inland areas affected by the Highland Clearances in the 1800s, where people were evicted from the land to make room for sheep. Croick church, 10 miles west of Ardgay was used as a refuge by displaced families. In the centre of the village there is a multi-purpose village hall which has a bar, a restaurant, a café and a post office. Opposite this building is the Clach Eiteag Boulder, thought to have once marked the site of fairs. Ardgay attractions include its 9-hole golf course and the Gearrchoille Community Wood, which is 33 acres of semi-natural ancient oak wood, used for conservation with education and recreation facilities. Nearby attractions include Dunrobin Castle in Golspie, the Ferry-Croft Countryside Centre at Lairg and a beach, sea-fishing and boat hire at Portmahomack.
