Coach Tour Based in Dornoch

Myself, my husband and my sister recently enjoyed a coach tour to Dornoch, Sutherland (North-east Scotland). We were based in Dornoch - a very beautiful small town and an excellent base for touring the Highlands of Scotland, just off the A9 and abount an hour away from Inverness.

Dornoch Beach

Although it was extremely cold when we visited Dornoch in February, it was sunny most of the time until late afternoon. This is when I took this picture of the beach. It was great to walk on an almost deserted beach, with the snow covered mountains in the distance

Beautiful Town

Dornoch is not a very large town - the population is under 2,000. There are a few shops, around 5 hotels, schools and a beautiful beach. This is a picture of the main road out of the town leading on to the A9.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Excellent base for touring the Highlands of Scotland and extremely beautiful town
  • Cons:Quite a distance when travelling by road although there is an airport at Inverness.
  • In a nutshell:A lovely "Get Away from it All" kind of place
  • Last visit to Dornoch: Feb 2005
