Bettyhill (gälisch Am Blàran Odhar) ist ein kleiner Ort in Nordschottland. Er wurde 1819 durch Elizabeth, Gräfin von Sutherland gegründet. Sie ließ diesen Ort damals als Ersatz für den Ort Rosal in Strathnaver, der geräumt werden musste, errichten und benannte ihn nach sich selbst.

Der ursprüngliche Ort wurde im Zuge der immer intensiveren Nutzung durch Schafherden aufgegeben. Diese Vorgangsweise war für die damalige Zeit der "Räumungen" durchaus ungewöhnlich. Man ging normalerweise nicht so zimperlich mit den Einheimischen um.
