“We felt this image really captured the fun of a stay in Dornoch and the spirit of adventure shared by all those who visit us.”

“It speaks of refreshing walks on the beach, discovering nature, enjoying the beautiful weather – and there’s a real sense of energy to it.
“It perfectly encapsulates everything that springs to mind when I think of Dornoch.”
