Places To Visit

You can do it all from Dornoch!  

Within a short distance there are beaches, golf courses, a range of sports, historical sites, stunning scenery and wonderful wildlife. Everything you’ll want to see and do in Scotland is here.     

Sitting on the edge of the Dornoch Firth, the small historic town of Dornoch boasts a tranquil location, stunning scenery and sunny climate. This thriving community sits on the east coast of the north Highlands that runs from the Moray Firth up to Sutherland. It is blessed with a particularly sunny climate thanks to its sheltered position, and has miles of golden sand beaches. The beach stretches from Dornoch Point heading past Embo beach to the mouth of Loch Fleet National Nature Reserve. Adjacent to the beach is a Site of Special Scientific Interest that features nesting birds, flora and fauna.

And for those keen golfers, tee-off on the Royal Dornoch championship course, ranked 13th in the world ! The coast is also a favourite with wildlife such as seals and a sizeable population of both breeding and wintering birds.

Loch Ness is one of the most famous lochs in Scotland, perhaps even the most famous loch in the world, immortalised by the Loch Ness Monster. The loch itself is 23 miles long, that's 37 kilometres, though it is quite narrow. Loch Ness is deep, not actually the deepest loch in Scotland which is Loch Morar, but the second deepest loch at 230 metres, which is 755 feet. Amazingly, Loch Ness contains more fresh water than all the fresh water of English and Welsh lakes put together - well worth a visit.
