We all had a fantastic stay in The Curling Pond house. It is a bright, spacious house with lots of lovely details and finishes by the artist who built it. It is in the centre of beautiful Dornoch which has so much going on and a short walk to the amazing white stretches of beach. Loads to do with Dunrobin castle near by, seal spotting, fishing, golf and stunning walks. The house is warm and set in a beautiful garden with chickens and ducks in an enclosed area at the back of the house. We came with children who had an amazing time too. The entire garden is also enclosed which is great for the kids and car. The house itself is a joy to be in with a great layout and lovely living space for eating and relaxing. It is modern, but with lots of character. We couldn't fault our stay and will certainly be back!

We stayed at the Curling Pond in the summer with a group of friends and our young children. The layout of the place means that it doesn't feel crowded, even when full. A feature of the stay that we really enjoyed was the attention to detail, both in the artistic decor and in the well-stocked kitchen drawers. The garden at the back of the house is quite magical and our children loved the little Bantam hens. The gorgeous beach and pretty town are just a few minutes away, an easy walk for children. It was a wonderful stay and we would thoroughly recommend this property.
Dornoch is a delightful highland town with many quaint shops and cafes. The local area is stunning with tons to do and a lovely coastline. The cottage is 2 minutes' walk from the centre of town but in a very quiet street. Parking no problem. The place was clean, well-maintained, warm with lots of hot water and a practical layout. Kitchen was well equipped and able to deal with quite a large meal for over a dozen people.
