Stunning house sleeping 16 with a whisky bar and games room, for family celebrations and golf breaks near Dornoch

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Embo House, Dornoch, Sutherland, Scottish Highlands, sleeps 8-16 in 8 bedrooms.

Embo House is a Castle of the Clan Gordon and dates originally from the 16th Century, though it benefited from an elegant Georgian make-over in about 1790. Today it is a luxurious, "grade A" listed mansion occupying a commanding position over the Dornoch Firth, providing contemporary, exclusive use, self-catering or partly-catered accommodation for large groups, golfers or indeed weddings.

Downstairs there is an airy and well-equipped kitchen, with a log-burning stove and wall-mounted TV/sound system. Next door is the grand dining room with seating for 16, perfect for celebration dinners.

There is plenty of space for everyone to relax in their own way. The cosy sitting room has an open fire and a smart TV, while the cedar-lined library has underfloor heating, a bluetooth sound system and another open fire. Finally, the games room, or whisky bar, contains a pool table, leather sofas and bar stools, Sky Sports on the huge TV mounted above the fireplace, a good sound system - and a well-stocked whisky bar, which operates on an honesty basis for our guests.

7 of the 8 generous double en suite bedrooms have views over the sea. 4 have super-king beds which can be arranged as doubles or twin beds. There are also a couple of low, children's beds which can be put up in bedrooms on request - and a cot.

Outside, in the 8 acres of landscaped garden, you will find a tree house, a beautiful glass summerhouse and a golf practice pitching area, complete with water hazard and a bunker! A path from the garden leads directly down to the sandy beach, which is a 10 minute walk away.

The house is situated 2 miles north of the Royal Burgh of Dornoch, the county town of Sutherland, with a Championship Golf Course (rated No 5 in the world), historic cathedral and castle. The town boasts a clutch of good restaurants and shops. This is also an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, being sandwiched between two, easily accessible Sites of Special Scientific Interest which are home to all kinds of wildlife. Embo house provides a great base from which to explore the North Highlands and all that is on offer in this beautiful part of Scotland.

Location

Embo House and its 8 acres of landscaped garden is surrounded by farmland, but it is only one field away from the dunes. There is a path from the garden to Embo's sandy beach and beyond to Dornoch.
The Royal Burgh of Dornoch, Sutherland's county town, with delightful shops and restaurants, is just 2 miles away and is easily reached by car, on foot or on a bike.
There is a community shop in the village of Embo (1m across the fields) which is open most mornings, but Dornoch's shops offer greater choice and are 2m away.
