About Mark+Kate 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+Kate 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..!

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!
Cosy Character Log Cabin
Fantastic cabin in a great location, beautiful walks right on the doorstep. The only downside is the cleanliness, it needs a really good deep clean. That aside, we all had a fantastic holiday and a well needed break from town life.
Perfect place for relaxing and exploring beautiful beaches. Dornoch beach is our favourite!!
Great location for exploring the outdoors. Lodge was comfortable and warm. We enjoyed the coal/log fires after being outdoors all day. Great place for kids with the tippee and swing close to the Lodge. Thanks again for letting us stay. ☺
Thanks for your review Jenn... So glad that you enjoyed your stay. Couldn't agree more, Dornoch beach takes some beating!
Hope to see you again sometime.
lovely place,nice nearby walks and town amenities .Private location and the cabin is comfortable and cosy.
Thanks for your review William, glad you enjoyed your stay!
Excellent time . Wonderful cabin and private woods not overlooked . North Highlands are stunning and every day was filled with fun activities for all the family. Biking and walking routes were well signposted and excellent and the castle in the village was as my daughter described a true fairy tale castle.
Thank you for your nice review John, we are glad that you had a lovely holiday and that the cabin suited you well. Do come back sometime!
With all best wishes
Mark + Family
