Southlins Self Catering Holiday Cottage in Dornoch

A Perfect Base from which to Explore the Scottish Highlands

Welcome to Southlins, a perfect base for self-catering in the Royal Burgh of Dornoch, an historic town situated in a designated National Scenic Area in the Highlands of Scotland on the edge of the Dornoch Firth.

Dornoch can offer the visitor a wide variety of interests and pursuits such as golfing on Royal Dornoch's championship course, walking in the magnificent local scenery including the National Nature Reserve at nearby Loch Fleet or just relaxing on our unspoilt sandy beach. Our tranquil location and climate bring return visitors to the area year after year.

Sandstone cottages and town houses line Dornoch's peaceful streets and lanes. Ancient buildings include the 13th Century cathedral, a bishop's palace (now a hotel), courthouse and old town jail. It was once the spiritual and administrative capital of Sutherland and might feel off the beaten track, but it's only an hour from Inverness Airport and five minutes from the A9.

Our holiday accommodation at Southlins provides the perfect base from which to explore this corner of Scotland. The property offers superb facilities for a family holiday or golfing party.
