The village of Melvich is located on the north coast of Scotland near the mouth of the River Halladale and is set in the rolling and open space of Sutherland known as 'Mackay Country'. At the head of the bay is Melvich Beach, a beautiful and unspoilt stretch of golden sand and a popular venue for surfing. Melvich has a village shop and post office as well as a village inn with a restaurant. The village attracts many visitors, especially during the summer months, as it is an ideal base for touring the north coast of Scotland. Orkney is just a short ferry ride away, and fishing is available on many of the local lochs.
From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.
