What to See and Do in Dornoch

Submitted by Owen McCafferty on Sat, 2009-12-05

Dornoch is famous for the Royal Dornoch Golf Course and, since Madonna married Guy Richie at Skibo Castle many people link the names of Dornoch and Madonna!

For me, Dornoch is beautiful and unspoilt, maintaining the original buildings and character of the town. It is also a clean town and I must admit to it being one of my favourites!

Dornoch Firth Caravan Park

Dornoch Firth Caravan Park is situated on the A9, midway between the Highland’s oldest Royal Burgh of Tain and the town of Dornoch, now made famous by Madonna. This well-run family park enjoys open views of the Dornoch Firth with picturesque coastal and rural scenery. The park features Caravan holiday homes, touring and tent pitches with bar and restaurant adjacent.
