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..!

fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

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.

Cosy Character Log Cabin

  • 3 of 5

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!!

  • 5 of 5

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. ☺

Charming log cabin in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing short break in this very peaceful setting. We took full advantage of the numerous walks in the immediate area. Our dog also loved exploring the surrounding woods! The cabin was clean and well equipped and enjoys super views of both the sea and the hills. Unfortunately it was cold and damp for much of our stay but we were able to make good use of the coal fire! We appreciated the welcome basket of food. All in all a breath of fresh air!

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.
