    Dornoch. The Castle hotel is ok, but maybe a bit overrated, especially the restaurant. £51 for Cullen skink/chicken liver pâté, steak/chicken, was steep. Had to wait 20 minutes for cup of coffee. Room overlooked garden and roof of restaurant - nothing special. Breakfast OK.

    Hi there, We are going to Dornoch Castle to celebrate my birthday (New Year's Eve) with two friends. We are travelling up from Hull by train, not got times etc as they are not published yet. What would be the best way to get to Dornoch Castle assuming that the train line stops at Inverness ?? Regards

    I agree with the previous writer that bus is convenient from Inverness to Dornoch BUT it leaves early (?9.20am) so you would need an overnight stay in in Inverness unless you were doing sleeper which arrives Inverness ?6am... More
