- Who lives in the most remote spot?
I think this building is one of the most remote regularly inhabited buildings in the mainland UK – former YHA, now a privately run hostel (although it was closed altogether for a good few years).
6 miles from the nearest road, only accessible by foot, bike, motorbike or helicopter. 🙂Posted 7 years agoesselgruntfuttockMember
Ha! Skiddaw house. My Mum & Dad used to go up there when they were a’courting, way back in the early 50’s. They knew the gamekeeper from Peter House farm & they’d sometimes get a lift in the back of the Jeep he had (or it might’ve been the shepherd’s) Anyway, is it as remote as Alltbeithe YH? Dunno how to do the linky for it.Posted 7 years agoGEDAMember
I don’t live there but there are plenty of farms in the Cheviots that are pretty off the beaten track. Uswayford (Usyford) is in the middle of nowhere as is High Bleakhope. Generators for Electric.
Nearly as off the beaten track as the places above in ScotlandPosted 7 years agoCaptainMainwaringMember
We’re in the Tay valley 100m up a track from a minor road. It’s 5 1/2 miles to the nearest village and 25 miles to the nearest town with a good sized supermarket, so reasonably remote.
Some friends used to own a cottage at Kinlochhourn on the west coast. 20 miles along a single track road and even then it was another 10 miles to the nearest place with shops. Not permanently inhabited though.Posted 7 years ago
