Maus Steading

Maus Steading

Maus Steading is a charming three bedroom cottage located on a brow of a hill overlooking the Dornoch Firth. It has been recently refurnished & equipped to a high modern standard.

Situated exactly 1 mile north of historic Dornoch, it will serve as an ideal base for golf, hill-walking, beach strolling or simply to unwind & relax. The property consists of established seaview front garden & large sunny back garden, both enclosed & suitable for outdoor eating and children.

Dornoch is a small seaside town long famous for its championship golf course, superb beaches, historic cathedral, and sandstone buildings. It sits within a National Scenic Area and just minutes away from the steading are a choice of endless beaches and duneland as well as Loch Fleet Nature Reserve, an area rich in bird and wildlife.

Within driving distance are an abundance of areas of breath-taking beauty and outdoor activity. For the hardy walker there are munros and corbetts in NW Sutherland, while close by just outside Dornoch are Skelbo Wood and Camore Wood & the Big Burn Hike and Ben Bhragghie in Golspie.

Maus Steading is perfect for cyclists. Town & the beaches are just down the hill, but lovely rides from 10 to 50 miles on winding, car-free roads are at your access. Bikes will be secure in the attached shed.

Other attractions include Dornoch's Historylinks museum, the ever popular Dunrobin Castle in Golspie and the whiskey distilleries of Glenmorangie, Clynelish, Dalmore & Balblair.

Ample off street parking for multiple cars. Large attached stone shed for outdoor/biking equipment storage.

Towels, linens, hair dryers provided.
