The natural beauty of this part of Scotland has to be enjoyed first hand.
There are forest walks, ranging from gentle to more challenging, and miles of sandy
beach to stroll along. Dornoch's very own local museum, Historylinks, gives an excellent
insight into old Dornoch, and they have produced the Historylinks Trail with a clear
concise plan of the city (which it technically is!) leading you to all the heritage
sites - and there is no shortage of those!
Dornoch's history goes back to Viking times, the Cathedral was completed in 1224,
the last execution of a witch in Scotland took place in 1722 only yards from Amalfi's
front door, and much more in between.
Without question, however, Dornoch is most famous for its world class golf course
- Royal Dornoch. It maintains its position as ranking 15th in the world, and is
a must for those making a golfing pilgrimage to Scotland. It is especially spectacular
in May and June, with all the colour of the gorse ('whins' if you are a Scot) and
broom. A truly challenging course which has been the highlight of many golfing tours.
Tom Watson has said he has never had more fun on a golf course. The Struie course
and nearby courses at Brora, Golspie and Tain complement Royal Dornoch, and are worthy
alternatives to play.
As a local, Marelle provides a valuable insight in assisting you to schedule whatever
activities you prefer. Her partner Edward is a golf nut and can assist you with golf
information and help you schedule your golf games
