Dornoch is on the east coast of the northern Scottish Highlands that runs from the Moray Firth up to Sutherland. It is blessed with a particularly sunny climate thanks to its sheltered position, and it has miles of golden sand beaches. The beach stretches from Dornoch Point, heading past Embo beach to the mouth of Loch Fleet National Nature Reserve. Adjacent to the beach is a Site of Special Scientific Interest that features nesting birds, flora and fauna.

Dornoch is home to the renowned Royal Dornoch Golf Club, ranked by Golf Digest in 2018 as the second greatest golf course experience in the world. The town is also famed for its impressive cathedral. Founded in 1224, it was restored by the Countess of Sutherland in 1835, and again in the 20th century. Scotland’s top philanthropist Andrew Carnegie paid for some of its stained-windows. Dornoch was also reputedly where the last witch in Scotland was burned in 1722 - an event commemorated by the Witch’s Stone.
