Sutherland Collection

Self-catering holiday in Scotland

Enjoy a Highland break in the Royal Burgh of Dornoch, a gorgeous Scottish seaside town which sits on the shore of the Dornoch Firth in a National Scenic Area. It’s situated in the county of Sutherland, which is one of the least populated and most unspoilt regions of the Highlands, making for an ideal place to relax and explore some stunning scenery. We offer various holiday properties in and around Dornoch, so you’re sure to find something to suit your needs.

There’s plenty to do during a break in the scenic cathedral town of the Royal Burgh of Dornoch. Its superb coastal location is certainly a draw, as is the acclaimed championship course at the Royal Dornoch Golf Club. You can also explore the town’s heritage with visits to a variety of historic buildings. Beyond the town, the beautiful surrounding countryside is great to explore and watch the wildlife, particularly at Loch Fleet National Nature Reserve.
