    We really enjoyed our stay in The Coach House. It was ideally located in Dornoch. The cottage was well equipped and most comfortable. Warm and snug accommodation to return to after a day’s sightseeing. We intend to return for a week next year as it was ideal for us.

    We stayed for five nights at The Coach House, at the end of August, and were delighted with the place. We have stayed in a number of other self catering establishments and have been disappointed with most of them. At last we have found one where the owners have really given thought to the needs of the guests before profit. The cottage was well decorated and clean, the furniture was comfortable and of good quality and everything required for our holiday was provided. A real pleasure to stay there. Oliver & Eileen

    The Coach House was perfect in all ways for us and our 3 golden retrievers. The welcome from Betty and Anne along with the shortbread etc that had been left for us was not expected however was a lovely touch. The Coach House was ideally situated for golf course, beach and shops etc. The weather was good so no complaints and I would definitely recommend the Coach House to others and would hope to stay therr again if ever back in Dornoch.

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Coach House. It is in a great location in Dornoch, close to the town and the beach. The house is very nicely furnished and comfortable. We were there with two young children and it was a perfect place for them, no stairs and lots of space to run around. We would definitely recommend it to anybody looking for a place to stay in Dornoch.

    Great location, not far from the town centre but not too close. Dornoch is a beautiful town well worth a visit. People of the town are very friendly indeed and they made us feel most welcome. Would return again as it is a beautiful drive up to that part of the country, the accommodation was perfect for what we wanted and the fact that it was dog friendly was ideal for us.

    Submitted on 02/05/2018 by Guest from Yeovil

    We found the Coach House to be very clean, warm and comfortable. It is one of the only properties in Dornock to take dogs and it is perfect inside and out if you have a dog. The property couldn’t be better placed, in an excellent position for walks, golf, beach and the town. Parking is good for one car. On the downside the bedrooms are very small and the property is a little basic with very limited outside space.

  • One Week Stay

    Submitted on 22/08/2017 by Elizabeth from London

    We stayed here for one week in August. The house really was home from home. We were met and greeted by Anne on arrival. There was tea, coffee, milk, shortbread and a lovely pot of homemade marmalade to welcome us to this beautiful part of Scotland. Dornoch is rural, quiet and stunningly beautiful.....Everything that we wanted for a week away from the hustle and bustle of London. The Coach House is very well equipped and and spacious. We didn't come across any obstacles, everything we looked for or needed was there. It is modern and clean. Has off street parking and an out side area to sit and listen to the stillness of the night. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again, it was well worth the 12 hour drive. We walked the coastal path everyday with our dog and were left in awe in each time.

    The coach house is a lovely cottage in a very good location close to the golf course. It was great that our dog could also stay and we had a great week with lots of long walks taking in the fantastic scenery. Although there are beds for 4, there were just the two of us - plenty of space to spread out - I suspect space would be tight if 4 adults were staying as the bedrooms are quite small. Overall I would not have any hesitation recommending the coach house and would definitely book again if staying in Dornoch.

  • Great place for experiencing East Sutherland, not far from Inverness.

    Everything was fine. Rooms comfortable. Situation great - easy walking distance from the centre f town, and even easier to the golf club. The only annoyance was that the fridge had a tendency to rattle noisily. Could probably be fixed by adjusting the legs, or standing on a beermat :)

    Excellent small house, third bedroom very small but house overall spotless and very well equipped. Had my 90 year old Dad with me and he found it difficult to climb in and out of bath to use shower, spoke to owner when leaving about this, she was very apologetic and said hand rails will be fitted this week so our next say would be perfect. That's what you call customer care. Thanks you so much

    Really loved the cottage - it was a perfect base for us and very convenient for walking to the village and the golf club. Felt very at home. The only issue we had was that the agency had not confirmed to the key holder that our dates had changed from the original booking so when we arrived on Thursday night we couldn't access the property which was a slight niggle given the long drive and that it was 9.30 at night. The key holder was very apologetic but this obviously was not her fault. This did not detract in any way from our enjoyment of the cottage, but feel it needs to be noted. We would definitely stay here again.

    Gael Holiday Homes Reply on 20/10/2016
    We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your constructive feedback about the key collection. We have investigated this and find that the agency did pass the date modification of your booking to the owner but this regretfully didn’t get through to the housekeeper/key holder. We have since discussed this with the owner and housekeeper to ensure there is improved communication in any future similar situations. We apologise for this glitch and are glad this didn’t detract from your enjoyment of The Coach House and hope you will visit again soon.

    Everything was as expected. The building is unimposing from the outside and simply furnished within. One of the single rooms is very small and the two reception rooms at either end of the house are unconventional. There is a small garden which gets the evening sun.

    Ideal base for our short break - great that the dog was welcome too. Cottage has everything you need with plenty of space due to the additional seating in the entrance porch area although weather was so sunny we made use of the outdoor seating in the enclosed garden. Lovely warm welcome from the owner and the milk, shortbread & marmalade were appreciated. Hope to be back

  • Stay at The Coach House
    5 OUT OF 5
    Submitted on 24/08/2015 by Guest from Kirkintilloch

    Thoroughly enjoyable stay at The Coach House. Cottage was clean and comfortable, and a nice touch was the little welcome gift of milk and a jar of locally made marmalade. Shortly after our arrival, the owner popped in to check that we had everything we needed. Internet access was important and Wi-Fi service at the cottage was good. Dornoch is a lovely little town on the North Coast 500 route and it proved to be a good base to access the lovely scenery that the North of Scotland has on offer. Dornoch itself has the well known Golf course, a couple of nice pubs, restaurants and small local shops. The dog particularly enjoyed racing around on the beach which affords the opportunity to take long, uninterrupted, sandy walks.


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.
