  • "A comfortable and relaxing holiday base within walking distance of general shops and eating places."

  • "Glenmuir is a lovely cottage, suitable for family groups with a safe enclosed garden."

    Shops, places to eat out and beach are all within easy walking distance. Highly recommended.

  • "Felt very quiet and secluded despite being close to town centre and very near the nearest shop and chinese takeaway."

    Despite having taken all cleaning materials we found that these were supplied. Mixed messages in literature about whether double or king size beds and only one pillow per person. Difficult access for larger people down window side of bed... Some banged heads in darkness. These are minor issues in a clean, comfortable, well-furnished and spacious (open plan ground floor) accommodation. Would definitely go back.

  • "Lovely cottage, in a fabulous location."

    Only a 5 minute walk to town centre, with plenty of shops , restaurants And of course the gorgeous beach. Only down point there are no facilities at the beach and not enough parking for disabled people.

  • "A very comfortable and well equipped cottage, and excellent for a winter break."

    The cottage was very well heated, and the heating was on for us arriving. Dornoch was a perfect place to use as a base for walks in the area.

The property

Glenmuir Cottage is a charming, stone-built property tucked away in the coastal resort of Durnoch, enjoying the rich heritage and wild beauty of the Scottish Highlands.

This traditional cottage is well-suited to families, couples and groups of friends looking to rest and explore all the wonders this area has to offer, in a town that is full of history and culture.

Make the most of the big outdoors, with its golden beaches, golf courses and historical sights, tied together with stunning landscape scenery, and return to this cosy base nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac, down a single-track lane.

Spend your down time in the sociable open-plan living room and sink into the sofas before the open fire, or gather around the dining table for a hearty meal cooked up from the fully appointed kitchen.

When you are fully relaxed and the evening draws to a close, head up the stairs to find two family bedrooms, each with a double and single bed along with ample storage space and sloping ceilings adding character.

Use the large, lawned garden to the front of the cottage for sunny picnics while the kids play on the grass, and unwind with a chilled drink as you discuss your plans for the day ahead.

Dornoch has many local eateries, pubs and shops, as well as the Royal Durnoch golf course, which was voted the fifth best outside of the United States.

Spend a day at the Blue Flag beach with your loved ones, with its sheltering dunes and glistening shores, which are perfect for paddling and swimming.

Alternatively, take a trip up to Dunrobin Castle, for a lovely day out uncovering its hidden treasures and strolling its enchanting gardens.

There is also wildlife watching and cycling in the area and further afield you have the vibrant city of Inverness, with its Old Town, impressive cathedral and so much more to see and do.

This is the ideal getaway for a well-earned break to Scotland.
