• About Heatherwood House

    Set within two miles of the stunningly beautiful white sandy beaches of Embo and Dornoch, a Royal Burgh since 1628, this spacious and very well appointed holiday property is ideal for larger parties. Enjoying exceptionally large living areas featuring wooden flooring and very comfortable furnishings, Heatherwood House stands only a short distance from shops, bars and restaurants in the thriving small town of Dornoch, where a pleasant circular walk passes the Old Town Jail and the 13th-century cathedral (famously chosen by Madonna for her son’s Christening), before going on past the Royal Durnoch championship golf course and the beach up to the pier at the seaside village of Embo. Nearby, the Loch Fleet nature reserve (a designated SSSI) attracts a wide variety of wading birds, and guided tours of this wonderfully tranquil tidal basin can be arranged. The Sutherland hills are a short drive away and there are forest walks nearby. Just 10 miles away lies Dunrobin Castle, spiritual home of the clan Sutherland since the 13th century. Today’s visitors can enjoy falconry displays and wander through spectacular gardens, designed by Sir Charles Barry and inspired by the Palace of Versailles. For whisky enthusiasts, Glenmorangie distillery tours at Tain are a must. Shops, bars and restaurants 1.5 miles.

    The house was great, a few things needed cooker that works properly, more cutlery, information pack and better outside seating area. Overall an enjoyable stay, would recommend it.

    The cottage was big and spacious, and the lady who takes care of the property was lovely and helpful. We felt that the cottage was particularly dated and in need of a real deep clean, much of the fixtures were coming to the end of their life potentially and the cottage was not particularly well equipped compared to others we have stayed in. Suggestions - more glasses / children's plastic plates and cups / please fence of and secure part of the lovely large garden, as we couldn't use it safely with 3 kids under 5 / Some info and leaflets about the local area and attractions was sorely missed...we couldn't get any signal to get online and google stuff ourselves so this would have been very useful / Get wifi!!!

    Had a lovely time at Heatherwood House. The house was very spacious and very comfortable. The house was very clean too. Great location near to Dornoch town where you can visit the local attractions and beautiful beach.
