The property

Red Squirrel is a quaint family lodge nestled in the seaside town of Dornoch, in the Highlands of Scotland. Surrounded by idyllic countryside views, this property sleeps six, has off-road parking, and offers a tranquil break from the hustle and bustle of city life for family, friends, and a well-behaved pet. Step into the property to find a spacious open-plan living space with a dining table perfect for a night of board games, an electric fire to cosy up next to and a Smart TV.

In the fully-equipped kitchen, you’ll be able to wow your fellow travellers with the meals you whip up.

When the sun is shining, make use of the wrap around patio and rear garden where you can soak in the hot tub or have a feast with the BBQ grill.

As the evening winds down, destress in the family bathroom with its large walk-in shower, and catch your rest in either a twin room, a double room, or a double with handy en-suite.

If you don’t feel like cooking, within walking distance you’ll find the town of Dornoch where you can have a hearty meal at Coach House Bar & Restaurant, visit Jail Dornoch to buy some souvenirs, channel your inner Tiger Woods at the Royal Dornoch golf Club.

If the weather allows, don your bathing suit and head over to Dornoch Beach, with its beautiful views and coastal walks.

For even more adventurous fun, make your way to Portmahomack where you can visit the Tarbat Discovery Centre Museum, enjoy stunning coastal views at Tarbat Ness Lighthouse, and if you’re lucky enough, you can say hello to the dolphins at Portmahomack Dolphin Viewpoint.

A scenic drive from the property will take you to Inverness, where you can marvel at the carp pond, waterfalls, and tropical flowers of Inverness Botanical Gardens.

Those travelling with children can enjoy a lovely afternoon of soft play at Frankie and Lola’s Amusement Centre, and you can end the day with a riverside dinner at The Waterside Restaurant. Find a peaceful summer escape in the Highlands with a stay at Red Squirrel.

About the location


Inverness 43 miles

Translating in Gaelic to 'pebbly place', Dornoch is a delightful seaside resort in the North of Scotland. It is a beautiful town with so much to see and do and it is a place full of history and culture. Dornoch is home to the 13th-century Dornoch Cathedral and directly opposite the cathedral is Dornoch Castle which is now a hotel making it the perfect place to stop off and stay awhile. Dornoch has a golf course that has been voted the fifth best outside of the US so is well worth a visit. No visit to Dornoch is complete without a visit to Dornoch beach situated on the beautiful Dornoch Firth and with its miles of golden sands is a great place for beach walks and activities. Aside from the beauty and history, Dornoch has a great range of shops, galleries, cafes, pubs and restaurants to discover and is the perfect place for picking up gifts to take home to loved ones.
