You aren’t likely to stumble across Links House at Royal Dornoch by mistake — this country house hotel is set in the wild and enchanting Scottish Highlands and is a few feet away from a secluded and untouched beach.
With an abundance of wild and natural beauty on its doorstep, it is no surprise that it has been a destination for traditional country sports since it was built in the 19th century. The hotel also has its very own Highland Experiences concierge to help plan bespoke adventures for the Scottish pursuits that take your fancy.
There’s clay shooting, hunting, fishing (the nearby lower River Oykel specializes in salmon), cycling, hiking and dolphin spotting. The first tee of the Old Tom Morris-designed Royal Dornoch Golf Club is a mere 150 ft away from the hotel, so keen golfers will delight in teeing off at one of the world’s best courses.
After your day of excitement, retreat to Links House and curl up next to a wood-burning fireplace in The Mallart apartment. This penthouse suite overlooks Dornoch Firth and is the most exquisite country-style space, with a bespoke library of Highland-themed books.
From $1,050 per night
