We are approximately 4 miles east of Tongue and 9 miles west of Bettyhill. We are ideally situated for anyone following the National Cycle Network route, attempting Lands End to John O’Groats or driving the NC500.

Street View

Google StreetView shows The Poor House as having a red painted roof, however if you look in the bottom left corner of the background image you will see the building has now been painted black & white. We are clearly visible from the road, particularly if you are travelling west.

Most SatNavs will direct you to the centre of the postcode area, which is north along the road towards Scullomie (red marker). However, we are located at the green marker, inside the ‘U’ bend of The Strathtongue Burn.
