“Jacqui's B&B is right on the road through Golspie directly overlooking the sea. The outside looked smart and inviting and we were not disappointed once we got to our room! Beautifully decorated, large, airy room with a full-size bathroom which was an added bonus. Lovely breakfast the next day too. We stayed in a number of B&Bs throughout our trip on the NC500 and I think this was my favourite. Jacqui was a lovely, friendly host and communication from start to finish was perfect!”
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!”
