A Bed and Breakfast in East Sutherland

We are very close to the town’s many varied amenities and very close to one of the world’s great golf destinations. It is sometimes claimed that the town and golf links conspire with one another to cast a magical spell over all who visit Dornoch ... This may be true, but our mission is to ensure that you experience a very relaxing night’s sleep, followed by a memorable breakfast to set you up for the day ahead.

Our two guest rooms – which can be ‘Super King Double’ or ‘Twin Beds’, feature good size beds with soft cotton pillows and fine Egyptian thread linen sheets, and they both have ensuite bathrooms. We like to describe our house as being characterful and distinctive, and our accommodation as welcoming and comfortable ... Hopefully these aspects will also conspire to provide you with a marvellous as well as a magical stay in Dornoch.

For the best part of thirty years Matthew has been one of the world’s leading golf photographers. In addition to capturing some of the sport’s seminal moments and photographing its greatest exponents – from Nicklaus and Watson, to Ballesteros, Norman and Faldo, and Woods, Spieth and McIlroy while covering more than 100 Major Championships, he has also been fortunate to travel the six continents and photograph most of the world’s most venerated golf courses. So why does he choose to live in Dornoch?... The unrivalled golf? The unrivalled light and scenery? The unrivaled whisky? (yes, Matthew describes himself as ‘an outdoor-living golf and whisky enthusiast’). Or perhaps, as Queila would more succinctly put it, ‘it’s the quality of life here’.

As your hosts, Matthew and Queila are very happy to share their knowledge of golf, Dornoch and the wider Highland region, and will be pleased to advise you in relation to your 19th hole plans and any more general wishes or requirements.

The Private House Stay's Guide

East Sutherland

East Sutherland lies north of the Dornoch firth until the start of Caithness above Brora. The county also stetches westwards to Ullapool although its definition can be a bit confusing as most of it has a Inverness-shire postcode and is thus identified by Private House Stays as North Highlands. The area has some good farming land as well as the usual beautiful highland scenery, dotted with whisky distilleries, lochs, rivers and mountains. Dornoch, Tain, Golspie and Brora are all highland towns with their own interesting histories and culture. Dornoch has a world famous championship golf course, the bird watching and coastal scenery are spectacular and the Falls of Shin are also recommended for a visit.
