Kinlochbervie is a harbour village in the north west of Sutherland, in the Highland region of Scotland. In 2001 the population was 480, down from 920 in 1881.The majority of local industry is based upon fishing. Although the fleet of ships actually based in Kinlochbervie is rather small, many ships from the east coast of Scotland land their catches in Kinlochbervie.The dominant feature of the town is the large fish handling depot. From here catches are loaded onto large refrigerated lorries for transport by road throughout Europe. The importance of this link to the outside world to the local economy means that Kinlochbervie has surprisingly good road links, given its remote location and rugged local geography.Inhabitants of Kinlochbervie are sometimes collectively referred to as "Greeks" by the residents of surrounding villages, for reasons now largely unknown. The village itself is sometimes referred to as "KLB". The most common surname in the area is "Morrison".The local scenery is a tourist attraction and is also an important part of the local economy. There are many holiday homes and small bed and breakfast businesses in the area. The largest in the village is Kinlochbervie Hotel.Approximately five miles drive, and four miles walk north of Kinlochbervie itself lies Sandwood Bay, a scenic beach. Other scenic areas close to the village include Oldshoremore beach and Rhiconich.On Sunday 20 January 2002 the first airing of Time Team's excavation of the area began. Divers from the programme's team went to explore the waters off the coast of Kinlochbervie, about twenty metres below the sea’s surface after a shipwreck and artefacts were discovered by divers from RAF Lossiemouth. The artefacts found included two anchors, five iron canons and Spanish pottery from the 16th century.When using our United Kingdom trip planner to make an itinerary online, Kinlochbervie holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
