Dun Brae is Gaelic for “castle on a hill”. Dunny is no castle, but its perch on its hill above Dornoch affords one of the best and most enjoyable views of the town that can be found. The cottage’s situation is simultaneously private and central, placing guests mere yards from the centre of town and the first tee box at Royal Dornoch. With less than a half mile to the beach, as well, Dun Brae’s location is unmatched for convenience and comfort.
Dun Brae is a multi-generational family holiday cottage. The thick, centuries old sandstone walls create a quiet and comforting atmosphere, and the interiors provide all of the comforts of a home-away-from-home—a great base for one week or one month. Over the decades, the house and gardens have undergone constant planning and improvement by a dedicated team of local artisans. The cottage is filled with antique furniture and art from years of travel in Scotland and pays homage to the country charm that is quintessentially the Highlands. While traditional in its core, Dun Brae affords all of the luxuries and comforts of a fine 21st century country home. All of the rooms proudly boast tartan and tweed furnishings from ANTA, Scotland’s premier outfitter of Scottish country lifestyle, and paint and wallpaper from Farrow & Ball.
Living and Library rooms: There is a cosy living room with a large grey tweed sofa with foot rest (deep and comfortable!), which provides a great place to lounge at the end of an active day. Gaze out the windows, sample the fine Classics library or stacks of periodicals, or draw the curtains to enjoy the large Smart TV. The library features a tweed loveseat, nursing chair, desk and office chair, as well as a Smart TV on the desk which can function as entertainment or as a second monitor for work. The brass coffee table contains a selection of books on Scotland, whilst the library shelves offer various works of literature.
Kitchen and dining: The fully fitted modern kitchen boasts Neff and Bosch appliances and a country dining table with views of the front garden and town. Adjacent to the kitchen is a utility area with an excellent Bosch washing machine and tumble dryer (powders provided). A handy cloakroom contains a toilet and wash basin appointed with Fired Earth tiles.
Master Bedroom: The cosy, coffered master bedroom contains a super kingsize bed with top-comfort Emma mattress dressed in White Company sheets. The fitted wardrobe and chest of drawers round out the storage. It also offers views of the front garden, town and cathedral, as well as Dornoch Firth in the distance.
Twin bedroom: has twin beds and duvets made up White Company sheets, a fitted wardrobe and desk drawers, whilst the desk and chair provide a lovely place to read and look out over Dornoch Cathedral and the garden.
Full Bathroom: The shared bathroom suite at Dun Brae Cottage is luxurious, comfortable and light-filled due to two mirrored skylights; every surface of the room is tiled in marble and glass from Fired Earth. All of the plumbing fixtures are Lefroy Brooks, and the accessories are from Perrin & Rowe.
Exterior: Outside, the large and mature front garden is paved with a wide Caithness slab terrace, with a wrought iron table and four chairs positioned to view the town and cathedral. At the rear of the cottage, there is a limestone gravel driveway and parking for two cars.
