Discover Sutherland - Your Local Guide

The scattered crofting community of Rogart can be found a few miles inland of the east coast of Sutherland. Lying half way along Strath Fleet between Loch Fleet and Lairg the parish covers several square miles, running nothwards until it meets Strath Brora.

The parish has a population of just over 400. Some of these live and work the crofts (agricultural smallholdings) scattered throughout the area. The rest of the population lives in the village of Pittentrail in the south of the parish.

Rogart railway station was built in Pittentrail in 1868 and the village grew around it. The railway station is still open and is a request stop on the Far North line. Because it serves the wider community, the village has a pub, a local shop, petrol station and garage as well as the village hall, focus for many community activities.

Despite its small size there is ample tourist accommodation in the area. There are a number of bed & breakfast establishments and many self-catering facilities from caravans to cottages.

The main attraction for visitors is the peace and quiet that can be found here as well as the friendly community spirit. The area is ideal for activities such as hillwalking and birdwatching and there are spectacular views from the hilltops across the wooded glens.
