Fodor's Expert Review Royal Golf Hotel Dornoch

The First Tee, Dornoch, Highland, IV25 3LG, Scotland

Set on the edge of the town's famous golf course but run independently, this historic Highland hotel offers comfortable and modern rooms, an excellent restaurant with golf course views, and a cozy bar lounge with an open log fire (and nonstop golf on the TV). As well as the main rooms, there are also self-catering apartments available to rent next door. Even if you aren't staying here, come for a meal in the smart but informal restaurant, with dishes incorporating locally sourced venison, duck, mussels, and sea bass. Save space for a sumptuous sticky toffee pudding to finish.

PROS

  • great dining (try the sticky toffee pudding)
  • many rooms have golf course views
  • historic property

CONS

  • single rooms are quite small
  • public lounges showing some wear and tear
  • no elevator
