The large enclosed garden comprises lawns, borders, a few trees and a sunny patio and is gradually being planted to encourage birds and butterflies.

There is ample off street parking for 3 cars which makes it ideal for friends or family groups. The garage provides shelter for bicycles.

The house is within walking distance of the town centre with its cathedral, cafes, restaurants, interesting shops (including bookshop and the Jail gift shop) and the occasional farmers' market. A footpath accessed via the rear garden gate takes you direct to the town centre.

Petrol is 2 miles away at Evelix and groceries and butcher meat in town and nearby supermarkets.

Dornoch is renowned for its beautiful beach and championship links golf course, Royal Dornoch and neighbouring Struie course and is well situated for playing many other courses including some 9 hole courses in scenic locations.

Guest Comments

The accommodation was well equipped and comfortable. It is in a quiet but very convenient location within Dornoch.
John, Chatham : 6th August, 2016

It has a lovely homely feel and offers us everything we need. It's our 2nd stay and we'll be back again. Dornoch is still to be properly explored, but what we've seen so far is great, there is so much to see and do.
Rosie, Kirkwall : 30th March, 2015

As a return guest to Glen Dael I found that the high standard of the accommodation has been maintained. The cottage is in a quiet residential area and yet is only a short walk to the centre of Dornoch.
Hugh, Denny : 29th May, 2014

The house was very well furnished and had almost everything we needed. It was lovely and roomy with plenty of crockery and cutlery. The garden was a great size too. Loved the supply of books, dvd's and games. Dornoch has lots to offer, good shops and cafes, golf courses and the beach. Will be back to see it all yet.
Rosie, Kirkwall : 1st May, 2014

Bungalow was well equipped and spacious enough for the six of us and baby. Loved the area for golfing and walking. Would stay again if I am back in the area and would recommend.
Gordon, Dennyloanhead : 23rd April, 2014

The accommodation was clean and very spacious. The kitchen in particular was really well kitted out with lots of things that were brand new! The back garden was also great for our two small children. The house is literally 5 minutes walk to the centre of Dornoch (pub/co-op etc!) Dornoch was excellent for a stay with young children. Great beach and lots of forest walks (e.g., Skelbo woods and Camore woods)
Alasdair, Inverness : 23rd April, 2014

Well presented, spacious accommodation which was perfect for our families stay in Dornoch. Easy to find and well placed for all local amenities. Nothing else could have been added to the property to make it any more suitable and the owners have done an excellent job of ensuring there were plenty of everything in the house required even stocking DVDs and games! Lovely area, lovely accommodation and the perfect weekend spent there!
Hilary, Aberdeen : 16th December, 2013

Wonderful Highland Escape wonderful bungalow in Dornoch close to local amenities and a great base for touring and golf. We had a great stay at Glen Dael in October with 3 teenagers. The property was ideal-very clean, spacious, modern and clearly well maintained. We hope to return soon. Wi-fi access would be a nice add on!
Pauline, East Kilbride : 29th October, 2013

very clean and comfortable -everything had been done to make the stay most enjoyable. We made use of the bird seed which had been left and loved seeing the variety of birds come to feed.
C H, Peebles : 26th July, 2013

Really enjoyed our stay. Very clean and comfortable stay.
