The Coach House

The Coach House

Originally a coach house for Ross House, a local nearby mansion, this well-equipped holiday home has been completely refurbished to a good standard offering modern and clean comfort.

Located on Argyle Street, just a short stroll from Dornoch main square, the holiday home is in an ideal location for the shops, restaurants and bars of the town as well as only a few hundred yards away from the Royal Dornoch Golf course and Dornoch beach.

Dornoch is an ideal location to use a base for visiting the wider Highlands with Inverness around 40 minutes’ drive, the west coast and Cairngorm National Park not much further and John O’Groats a couple of hours. For those spending their time in and around Dornoch the HistoryLinks Museum runs walking tours of the town and is worth a visit and the blue flag beach shouldn’t be missed within its unspoilt sands stretching as far as the eye can see.

The Cathedral in the town, although relatively small as Cathedrals go held its first service in 1239 and continues to act as the parish church today. It’s well worth paying a visit if not just to marvel at the architecture with the gargoyles on the exterior looking down at you from above.

The location
Catriona, Stevenston : 19th September, 2016

The cottage was spacious, clean, well equipped and had off street parking which was great. It was in a great location and we had a enjoyable stay. Would definitely come back again. The beach was great and our dog loved it.
Linda, Portsoy : 23rd July, 2016

Clean bright well equipped house has everything we needed. Fine for four people sharing. Close to beach and all amenities. Very pleased overall.
Jo, Eyemouth : 2nd July, 2016

Accommodation very satisfactory for what we required, i.e. as a base for several day tours through north and north west Scotland as well as some local relaxation.
Stuart, Holmfirth : 25th June, 2016

Clean and well equipped. Good location
Keith, Huntington : 30th May, 2016

Very cosy, comfortable flat.

Jane, Newcastle Upon Tyne : 21st March, 2016

Cosy and comfortable cottage equipped with everything we needed. Great that the dog could come with us too. Very welcoming owner.
Evelyn, Motherwell : 17th October, 2015

The cottage was the perfect base from which to explore parts of the North Coast 500 route and was ideally placed a short distance from Dornoch town centre and beach. Mrs MacPherson, the owner, popped in shortly after we arrived to ensure that everything was in order and had been kind enough to leave milk and a jar of locally produced marmalade as a welcome gift, and then left us to enjoy our holiday. The ability to bring the dog along and the availability of WiFi were important. The cottage was comfortable and clean and had everything we required for our stay.
Maragaret, Kirkintillich : 3rd September, 2015
