Riverside cottage is a traditional stone cottage with White washed walls and a black Iron roof. The property has one double bedroom , bathroom with Toilet , Bath and electric shower over bath . Open plan Kitchen / living room with open fire , breakfast bar , comfy sofa , TV/DVD . There is a Patio area at the front of the cottage with a table and chairs looking out over the surrounding country .
The property was originally bought by my parents as a holiday home in the late 60's , It didn't have electricity for many years so all our holidays were a great adventure spoting deer in the field at the front and catching baby salmon in the stream .
Over the years the property has been renovated and at the end of 2011 was completely re done inside and out but kept its original character it even has a dish washer !
We stayed at the cottage for a week in July. The location is great - very quiet (we counted about 3 cars a day) with some nice views of the surrounding hills. The garden is very pretty (if a bit waterlogged) and ideal for kids. Dornoch is within a 10 minute drive and it's a lovely town. Special mention for the whisky bar in the Castle, incredible.
The cottage itself was spotlessly clean and very well stocked with everything you could possibly need. The open fire was a plus (even if we didn't light it) and the owner had got in a stock of logs. The beds are very comfortable and the bathroom was a good size. The lounge/kitchen is minute but as we were out all day it didn't matter. I do think it might be a bit claustrauphobic if you stayed in all the time. Contact with the owner was limited but he responded very quickly by email to all our questions and we also had a contact telephone number for the housekeeper.
There is no phone signal nor WiFi at the cottage (at least with my phone) which was fine for us as we were on a get away from it all holiday but this might be a problem for some folk.
All in all a great base for touring this part of the Highlands. Would strongly recommend.
Das kleine über zwei Zimmer und ein Bad verfügendes Farmerhäuschen, sehr ruhig gelegen, mit einem schönen Landschaftsausblick - mit niedrigen Türstößen!, große Leute 'Vorsicht'- hat unseren Aufenthalt sehr angenehm mitgestaltet. Das Haus ist gut ausgestattet, die einzige kleine Bemängelung sehe ich in der elektronischen Dusche, die wenig Wasserdruck aufweist, aber das ist wirklich meckern auf hohem Niveau.
Das Haus liegt abseits und man ist auf ein Auto angewiesen. Wer Ruhe und Rückzug in dem wunderbaren Schottland sucht, ist hier goldrichtig!
Petite maison "cosy". Lit extraordinairement confortable. Bonne location pour rayonner sur la côte et faire des randonnées. Très paisible ( pas de wifi) et reposant.

Dornoch is an ideal location for many local attractions and a great spot for exploring further north and over to the west coast .
Locally there is a beautiful coastline with sandy beaches , sea Lochs and estuaries with amazing bird and wildlife , fairy tale Castles and the most Northerly Cathedral .
Golf enthusiasts will love the Royal Dornoch golf course and 3 other courses within a 20 min drive .
There is good fishing in many hill lochs and Salmon fishing is available on the Helmsdale and Shin Rivers .
Many cyling trails have been developed in the area many linking forestry tracks and scenic rides together to create a variety of interesting rides .
Whiskey is a big attraction in scotland and one of the best, Glenmorangie is only 10 mins away .
If your into walking , step outside the barn and you can take your pick ,walk down the quite country lane to the River Evelix or over the hill and look out to the coast .
