Microcosm of the perfection of Scotland.
This well-loved, snug, cosy property is in an ideal location. It feels isolated and has a great view but within walking distance there is a magnificent burn and waterfall walk which takes you to Golspie which is on the coast! Dunrobin castle and the Loch Fleet nature reserve are also only a 5/10 minute drive so there is everything you could wish for immediately to hand. The cabin is lovely and warm (despite the windows looking slightly past their best), and whilst there is admittedly more to do in areas such as Speyside, it also means it is much busier (although still far less busy than where we live in Colchester). For a 'getaway from it all' holiday this was a perfect 2 week holiday for me and my husband. I feel sure we shall return, thank you ' El Cabino'.
Relaxing get way
Good break and chance to relax in quiet surroundings.
A chilly week in a lovely place
A comfortable, clean, well-decorated and provisioned cabin in a beautiful setting.
Also nice and warm on a week that had suddenly turned very chilly.
Very easy to get out and about and explore the area.
Cosy, comfortable, lovely views and the perfect hideaway
We booked El Cabino because we wanted to get away from it all. There is a lovely view of the Firth through the trees and the Mannie statue on top of the hill and the cabin is surrounded by a lovely forest so that you feel like you truly are on your own. But Golspie is literally five minutes down the road and Durnoch Beach-which is a lovely beach, is half an hour away. It’s a lovely place if you want to explore the northern highlands and enjoy a long drive.
We thoroughly enjoyed the log fire and the kids had a great time playing at the Den and swing. There are a number of walks in close proximity too.
The cabin is comfortable and a tribute to the family that own it.
We especially appreciated the welcome basket.
El Cabino was exactly as described and a brilliant getaway for the whole family - technology detox! Great woodland setting, very quiet and relaxing. Would definitely recommend and would love to return!
2 miles to Golspie Beach, 5 mins by car or 25 minutes walking. Golspie has a beautifully wide, windswept and deserted sandy beach. Seals and dolphins are often seen close to the shore, alongside many sea birds.
Inverness airport is approximately 50 miles from Golspie. It takes approximately one hour to drive. Car hire is recommended for this journey although it is possible to travel by buses or taxis are available to hire.
Golspie (2 miles), Brora (5 miles) and Dornoch (10 miles) are the most convenient shopping villages and centres of interest.

About Mark Scott
My Name is Mark Scott. The Log Cabin was built by my Father Michael in 1974 and has been our family holiday home ever since. I run the bookings for the Cabin on behalf of my brother David and my sisters Claire and Serena. We all love the place and holiday there regularly with our own families and friends. We pride ourselves in this being a small family venture, not a large commercial enterprise and we keep the Cabin looking warm and homely, not empty and stark like many holiday cottages. The place has bags of character and many people have been returning to holiday there for years, drawn back by its individual character and charm. If you make a booking you will deal with me directly, not a call centre or an appointed agent.
Why Mark Scott chose Golspie
My family has a long and happy association with Dunrobin Estate and as children we were all born and grew up in Sutherland. It is a beautiful area of Scotland, wild and remote with clean air and stunning mountain/coastal scenery. It is also extremely peaceful and unspoilt and one of the few places that I feel I can truly 'get away from it all'. I always return from a holiday there feeling refreshed and invigorated by having been so close to nature and so far removed from the pressures and demands of normal, hectic, everyday life.
What makes this Cabin unique
Relax in a truly unique and very homely Cabin, with lovely views out into surrounding woodland and beyond to the sea and nearby hills. The Cabin is stand-alone and not overlooked by any other property. It has a pretty, semi-wild garden and secluded south facing patio on which to relax in nice weather. The large open fire in the living room is a great draw on cooler days and for evenings in front of the TV, reading a book or playing board games. Roe deer often stroll into our woodland and many sea birds and birds of prey can be spotted from the garden or through the large windows. There are numerous beautiful walks and (mountain) bike rides straight from the Cabin door over hill top or past dramatic waterfalls and down onto wide sandy beaches. And then there are the amazing golf courses..!
