Explore Scotland’s treasures while staying in delightful Dornoch, a historic settlement nestling in a tranquil location on the Dornoch Firth. The town is home to sandy beaches, a thirteenth century cathedral and a championship golf course as well as nesting birds and a colony of seals. Dornoch is where the last witch in Scotland was burned at the stake and the landmark Witch’s Stone marks the spot. A varied itinerary takes in a tour & taste at Glenmorangie Distillery and a cruise in search of dolphins in the Moray Firth. Holiday highlight is our day at fairytale Dunrobin Castle, a stately home perched high above the crashing waves of the North Sea. This beautiful castle resembles a French chateau with its conical spires and was used as a military hospital during World War One. We stay at the Dornoch Hotel which stands in its own grounds overlooking the beach.
This former stately home stands in its own grounds overlooking the beach and the Royal Dornoch Golf Club. Impressive facilities include a grand wood-panelled bar, a sun lounge, pretty gardens and a pitch n putt course. The town’s splendid cathedral is just minutes away.
