Heatherwood House - at a glance

Sleeps 10 persons

Pets allowed Short Break Detached Cottage Sandy Beach Coastal property Golf Nearby No smoking Baby and Toddler Friendly Dishwasher Washing Machine

Set within two miles of the stunningly beautiful white sandy beaches of Embo and Dornoch , a Royal Burgh since 1628, this spacious and very well appointed holiday property is ideal for larger parties. Enjoying exceptionally large living areas featuring wooden flooring and very comfortable furnishings, Heatherwood House stands only a short distance from shops, bars and restaurants in the thriving small town of Dornoch, where a pleasant circular walk passes the Old Town Jail and the 13th century cathedral (famously chosen by Madonna for her son's Christening, pictured), before going on past the Royal Durnoch championship golf course and the beach up to the pier at the seaside village of Embo. Nearby, the Loch Fleet nature reserve (a designated SSSI) attracts a wide variety of wading birds, and guided tours of this wonderfully tranquil tidal basin can be arranged. The Sutherland hills are a short drive away and there are forest walks nearby. Just 10 miles away lies Dunrobin Castle, spiritual home of the clan Sutherland since the 13th century. Today's visitors can enjoy falconry displays and wander through spectacular gardens, designed by Sir Charles Barry and inspired by the Palace of Versailles. For whisky enthusiasts, Glenmorangie distillery tours at Tain are a must. Shops, bars and restaurants 1.5 miles.

Many people prefer to book a detached property for their holiday. Heatherwood House is detached which makes it ideal for extra peace and quiet. It is also beneficial to have a detached property if you are bringing your dog as they are less likely to be disturbed or disturb the neigbours.
