This comfortable and fully equipped small cottage is located three miles from the historic market town of Dornoch, in a peaceful location yet within easy reach of Dornoch’s shops, eateries, award-winning beach and the Royal Dornoch Golf Course.
The small cottage has lovely views of the surrounding countryside and offers a quiet space in which to unwind and relax. There is a rear storage room which provides a secure location for bikes, golf and fishing equipment, and an enclosed garden where children can play safely.
The local hotel, one mile from the cottage, has a restaurant and bar, and Dunrobin Castle and Gardens is a 20 minute drive north.
The Loch Fleet Nature Reserve and Skelbo Wood are both within walking distance of the cottage. Seals are spotted regularly at low tide in the Nature Reserve, as well as osprey, and Skelbo Wood has a lovely walk with carved wooden animals and the remains of a 2000 year old broch. As well as walking in tranquil surroundings and wildlife watching, you can enjoy outdoor activities such as mountain biking, fishing and golfing.
In addition to Royal Dornoch other local golf courses include The Struie (also at Dornoch), Golspie, Brora, Tain, Strathpeffer, and Fortrose and Rosemarkie.

Die Web-Beschreibung zum Haus ist sehr gut. Die Ausstattung des Hauses ist sehr gut. Ein wunderschöner Blick auf das Wasser. Ganz dicht 4 Schafe, bei denen man Tier-Studien treiben kann.
Leider ist der Weg zum nächsten Pub etwas weit zu Fuß :-)
The cottage was very clean and was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Lovely views and great location as it was in a rural area but still only a few miles out of Dornoch and Embo. Would stay again.
Excellent cleanliness,location and views.
A tip......relay the two Hearth slabs....use one only sideways and setinfloor lower....it is a tripping hazard.
Enable/fit a water tap and hose inside outer building for car wash etc
Will visit again.....Trentham Hotel a mile away very good and a most enjoyable eating refreshment experience
We had a marvellous week at 25 Skelbo with everything you could possibly need provided. This was an excellent place from which to explore Sutherland as it is so close to the A9. Many happy hours were spent by the loch observing the seals and many birds - this must be Heaven on Earth.
The cottage was so well equipped and extremely clean and well cared for with wonderful views from every window.. Everything was provided and all we had to do was buy our food.
We took the train from Tain to Wick - £57.50 for 3 Adults with a Disabled Person Rail Card. It took over 3 hours each way but was well worth it as the scenery was so beautiful. A shorter journey with a longer break can be had by getting off at Thurso.
The food at the Trentham Hotel, just up the road was excellent.
We were sad to leave and hope to return again in the future.
The property was in a good location to explore the Highlands and was easy to find from the main road.
It was basic but had most things needed for our family of four. The cot was lovely but there was no high chair. The cottage was extremely clean ad the kitchen was very practical, however a dishwasher is needed.
The views were lovely and the coast was close by however I feel the pictures attached to this cottage were misleading as to the views and proximity of a beach.
We enjoyed our stay and it was a great base to get out and about. Overall a lovely place but in need of some modernisation.
Follow the A9 north until you cross the Dornoch Firth Bridge. Continue north for approximately 1.5 miles (passing the A949 signposted to Dornoch) until you reach the Trentham Hotel. Take the right hand turn immediately opposite the hotel, onto a single track road. The cottage is one mile down this road on the left hand side.
