Welcome to The Bannockburn Inn, Helmsdale The Bannockburn Inn is a traditional Inn offering food, drink and self catering accommodation, situated conveniently on the NC500 route on the A9 in Helmsdale. We are privately owned and pride ourselves on being family friendly. We have our own car park with space for up to four large or six small campervans. For the cyclist, there is safe storage. We are ideally located for fishing enthusiasts as we are within walking distance of The River Helmsdale. The Inn is a perfect refreshment stop on your journey north to Orkney or John O'Groats (Taigh Iain Ghròt), or south to Inverness. You can sit and relax in our lounge bar, enjoy a drink with friends, connect to our WiFi to update your blog, before going through to our restaurant for your meal. Helmsdale offers other outdoor recreational activities like gold panning in the local streams and burns such as in The Kildonan Burn. For the walkers, we are on the John O'Groats Trail which takes you on the most magnificent cliff walks and affords you great views out across the sea to Tain/ Nigg and the Black Isle. For those less adventurous we have shorter local walks which also give you incredible views over the village and up the Kildonnan Strath and the Helmsdale River. Dining Andy 'The Viking' Fordham, former world darts champion, opened the Tartan Lounge Bar and Restaurant in May 2011.
