The Mission Hut

IMG_3867

It’s been our ambition for some time to convert the Mission Hut at the entrance to the estate into more holiday accommodation. Work is now in full swing and replacement cladding is now being fitted.

Inside the accommodation will provide a large bed/sitting room with fitted kitchen and a large shower and washroom. It should work well for a couple wanting to spend a few quiet days in the strath. A particular feature of the Hut is that red squirrels are regularly seen feeing within a few yards of the hut.

We are hoping it should be ready for occupation in the late Autumn and will let you know when it is.

    Thanks for this news concerning the Mission Hut where I conducted Winter Services (1996-2003) when the congregation did not meet in Croick over the Winter. My wife, Anne and I, would love to stay there next year – please keep me advised. May view the progress of renovation when up in the area later this year. I once had the idea to have a  wee craft shop/tearoom for people to visit when attending and visiting Croick Church, but the idea never came to fruition before I left. Were I in the parish now, I would be encouraging people to visit the church when following NC Route 55, or, indeed, have people visit the Strath when any cruise liner was tying up in Invergordon.  A minibus for that purpose would be a good investment. But now no longer in the Church’s possession, am glad to see the hut being put to good use – as with the Old Manse, now also a self catering provision. May all your plans go well.

    Best wishes,

      Thank you for your note, and your continued interest in all things Croick. The number of visitors to Croick is growing steadily and I’m sure the North Coast 500 is a key part of that. We are working hard to ensure that the external appearance of the Mission Hut will be consistent with the past, whilst the internal arrangements will be suitable for a stay. We hope that it will be ready by the end of the Autumn and we would love to see you there next year. We will certainly keep you posted.
