“Our historic Castle dates back to the 15th Century and now offers all the comforts and indulgences of a modern Hotel, “ he added, “Staying at Dornoch Castle Hotel will provide you with an opportunity to share in the building’s rich heritage as well as visit the charming town of Dornoch. For many this may be a new part of Scotland to discover!

Set in Sutherland, one of Scotland’s most dramatic regions, 3 star Dornoch Castle, which has been a hotel since 1947, has all the obligatory ingredients you look for when you are lured by the thought of staying in a Castle – there are the turreted balastrades, the winding staircases, the atmospheric dungeon and the impressive four posters. Not to mention the obligatory centuries of strife witnessed by the Castle withstanding fire, flood and battle! There is even a resident Ghost – a disgruntled sheep stealer who was locked up in the cells and later hanged when the building served as the town jail.
