With views to the Dornoch Firth this light and airy, self-contained, one bed apartment is situated in a quiet and leafy no-through road serving a small number of residential properties. The centre of Dornoch and the Royal Dornoch Golf Club is a ten minute walk. The expanse of sandy beach and dunes is approximately, a fifteen minute walk. It is perfectly situated as a pit-stop for the NC500 or as a base to enjoy the hills, glens and coastline.
“The place was clean, stylish and had everything we needed, including items that many places forget (like an ice tray and a bottle opener). The towels were nice and soft, the bed was comfortable and the apartment was warm despite the chilly weather outside. Don was readily available and happily supplied more wood and firelighters when we started running low. He was very friendly and a great host - he even included a little 'christmas gift' for us because we were there over the 25th, and the fridge had some milk, jams and butter already in it. Really lovely extra touches! The only two suggestions I could make would be to perhaps have a tray in the shower for soap, shampoo, etc as it's quite a small space and bending down to retrieve items from the floor is a bit of a squeeze; and to perhaps look at some footstools or a more comfortable single seater chair to accompany the sofa as it was quite a snug fit. We spent a few nights reading in front of the fire and it got a little uncomfortable after a while. Those are honestly the only two critiques I could give though. Everything else was fantastic and I couldn't reccomend the place more. The surrounding area is also beautiful (the beach is amazing) and everyone we came into contact with was very friendly. A truly lovely holiday all round!”
Mary’s View is a brand new 41ft long Luxury Caravan with brand new wrap around decking with 2 outdoor seating areas, sea view to the front and one of the only vans on site to also have a rear seating deck to enjoy watching the sun set too.
“I spent 3 nights at Mary’s View. It was amazing. The location is beautiful and great for commuting north or south. We spent one day in Inverness and another in John O Groats! The caravan had lovely decor and was so close to the lovely Embo beach where we had a walk after eating our breakfast on the porch every morning! All the little touches had been thought of. It was very cosy and spotless! Absolutely loved it. Would definitely recommend!”
Historic Tain is the ideal base for your Highland get-away. The North Coast 500 and the North Highland Way both pass the doorstep for those keen on cycling and walking. For the golfers we are a short distance to the Royal Dornoch Golf Course as well as having our own 120 year old Tom Morris designed course. The historians among you will love Tain and the surrounding areas for the Pictish Trails, and the Tain Through Time museum will tell of these and The 15th century Pilgrimages. The beautiful beaches of Dornoch, Portmahomack and the Seaboard villages are always worth a visit, you might even see a dolphin or two! The Granny Flat at St Mary's is a self contained one bedroom flat with parking in our driveway. The flat has its own entrance to the side of the building and you'll find a kitchen, bathroom, and a bedroom suitable for two adults. The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern appliances. As we are busy out and about every morning we can offer bread, cereals, tea and coffee for you to help yourself at your own leisure. The bathroom has a shower with a steam facility and a roll top bath to relax in. It also has a pulley so you can hang up your washing at the end of your busy day. We can provide a lockable area for your bicycles if required, please let us know if we can help or provide anything else.
“James's accommodation is clean and very comfortable. It is very well connected, has a Lidl 2 minutes walk and the main road 1 minute by car. James is very kind and detailed, I leave several food and drink items in the fridge.”
