The area abounds in history and for those who enjoy their national heritage you will not be disappointed by any of our local historic towns, all of which are within easy reach.
To the north is Dornoch and Golspie and a visit to both of these historic towns can be combined with a walk on the beach, a bout of retail therapy, a round of golf or a visit to one of Scotland’s most magnificent castles – Dunrobin.
To the south is Tain, Portmahomak and Cromarty, the latter two being steeped in unspoilt and beautifully preserved history. Portmahomak also boasts one of the finest restaurants in the north of Scotland, if out and about the Oyster Catcher will provide you with a meal to remember and at very reasonable prices – booking ahead is essential
To the south west and in an ideal place to stop if on a trip to the west coast is the wonderful 19th Century spa town of Strathpeffer which still retains its Victorian characteristics from its architecture to its street lighting.
