Good Hotel Guide Review
Close to the cathedral and the Royal Dornoch Golf Club, this ‘comfortable, very pleasant’ guest house is run by ‘helpful hosts’ Kerensa and Michael Carr. A homely place, the late-Victorian town house has a wood-burning stove in the lounge, plus a library to browse, and antiques that have been in the family for years. Up tartan-carpeted stairs, traditionally decorated bedrooms have a well-equipped hospitality tray, and a power shower in the bathroom. Stay in for a supper tailored to suit – the host plans the evening’s set menu taking into account guests’ allergies, intolerances or dislikes. A ‘delicious breakfast’ is served from 7 am. The sandy beaches of the Dornoch Firth are nearby.
