After the fun of the festive season, getting back to the grind can put a dampener on spirits. Today’s Big Deal on a Highlands getaway break is just the tonic.
In fact, your 2 night stay at the Dornoch Castle Hotel will leave you feeling like the king of the castle. You will have to supply your own dirty rascals.
Historical Highlands hotel
A scenic hour-long drive from Inverness, the family-owned Dornoch Castle Hotel can trace its earliest roots back to a 13th century bishop’s palace. Back in the day, its views across the Dornoch Firth to the purple hills of Ross and Cromarty made it a strategic military garrison.
These days, the same views, combined with 21st century creature comforts, mean that Dornoch Castle Hotel is a much sought after tourist destination.
Two night stay for two people
Today’s Big Deal is for a couple to enjoy a two night stay in one of the hotel’s Garden Rooms. Overlooking the walled gardens, these bright and sunny rooms are all ensuite with a shower or bath and shower. All have twin or superking beds.
A bottle of house wine on arrival will be just the job to help you settle in.
Full Scottish breakfast
A full Scottish breakfast is included in the Big Deal but, if you choose to take other meals in either the candle-lit Garden Restaurant or in front of the open fire in the more informal bar, then you can look forward to the finest Scottish produce.
Dornoch Firth mussels, West Coast scallops and Highland venison are the sort of ingredients that make regular appearances on the menu.
Plenty to see and do
Set in the beautiful town of Dornoch and situated directly opposite the inspiring 12th century Dornoch Cathedral, the hotel is ideally located for hill walking, fishing, distillery visits and, of course, golf.
The famous Royal Dornoch Championship Golf Course only a stone’s throw from the Castle.
