    Fantastic house - beautifully decorated and exceptionally well equipped, with great sea views (which is the trade off for being 1.5 miles outside the town)

  • Wonderful relaxing holiday

    The cottage was ideal for a relaxing holiday in Dornoch - extremely comfortable accommodation with everything you could possibly need, an amazingly quiet beach just a short walk away (10 mins dawdling), a wonderful view out to sea and a beautiful garden to relax in. Dornoch itself was a couple of minutes drive, with easy parking and a great selection of general and niche shops. We would thoroughly recommend Maus Steading.

  • would stay at the property again-the hosts are outstanding

    We enjoyed our stay at Maus Steading very much. Sure, having great weather helped but we found the house location perfect. Being able to walk to the beach in 5 minutes was great and only 2 minutes drive into Dornoch. The house interior has been refurbished to a high standard throughout and we enjoyed the use of the log burner. There are great views of the Dornoch Firth from the front garden which aren't apparent from the pictures on the web site. We would certainly love to come back , as long as you can guarantee the weather !

  • Wonderful accommodation

  • Lovely house, even better than pictures on website

    This house has only recently been refurbished and the owner's have further plans for back garden and storage area to front. The standard of the fixtures and fittings is excellent and no expense has been spared for the soft furnishings. The front garden is very generous, with an established country garden, several seating areas and a fabulous view to the sea. The rear garden is enormous, with a grassed area suitable for a variety of sports and games. There is a patio area with excellent patio furniture and also a barbeque, unfortunately we didn't have the weather to fully utilise these. For the above average in height the low ceilings in the two upstairs bedrooms can be a bit troublesome, but I would have no hesitation in recommending this property. The steading owner's also own and run the extremely popular Luigi's restaurant in the town. We had two fabulous meals there. Booking essential!

  • Cosy Cottage with amazing views

    Well equipped cottage, beautifully kitted out. Stunning views across the Dornoch Firth. Enjoyed many walks along the beach and the golf course into town.


Comfortably appointed & well equipped seaview steading with gardens. Fabulous location just 1 mile outside charming Dornoch.
