Tripadvisor

Welcome to Albatross Bed & Breakfast. Our distinctive detached property – an elegant 19th century traditional Scottish town cottage, is situated in the heart of Dornoch: we are very close to the town’s many varied amenities and ‘just down the road’ from one of the world’s great golf destinations. It is sometimes claimed that the town and golf links conspire with one another to cast a magical spell over all who visit Dornoch ... This may be true, but our mission is to ensure that you experience a very relaxing night’s sleep, followed by a memorable breakfast to set you up for the day ahead.

Our two guest rooms – which can be ‘doubles’ or ‘twins’, feature good size beds with soft cotton pillows and fine linen sheets, and they both have ensuite bathrooms. We like to describe our house as being characterful and distinctive, and our accommodation as welcoming and comfortable ... Hopefully these aspects will also conspire to provide you with a marvellous as well as a magical stay in Dornoch. Thank you for considering us. .

Our Excellent Location - The Appeal of this Extraordinary Area

Albatross Bed & Breakfast is situated on the corner of Sutherland Road and Castle Street – practically in the middle of Dornoch. To be more precise, we are 29 seconds from the atmospheric Eagle pub in one direction and 34 seconds from splendid Luigi’s Restaurant in another. (Apparently the celebrated Whisky Bar in the Castle Hotel is only 28 seconds away ‘going out’, yet can seem more like 43 seconds distant when you ‘turn for home’). ... Most importantly, the 1st tee at Royal Dornoch is a mere 5 minute brisk walk from our doorstep.

So Albatross Bed & Breakfast is conveniently located in the centre of a charming cathedral town and we are situated very close to a world famous golf course. We are also surrounded by some of the finest and most spectacular scenery on the planet ... To quote a golf writer friend of ours:

“Haunted castles, mist-covered mountains and bottomless lochs; bagpipes, whisky and haggis: I doubt whether there is a more romantic place in the world than the Highlands of Scotland. Moreover, I doubt if there is a place quite so shatteringly beautiful.”

About Your Hosts

The Owners and Managers of Albatross Bed & Breakfast are Matthew Harris and his Brazilian wife, Queila (a couple of albatrosses who have wandered far from home).

For the best part of thirty years Matthew has been one of the world’s leading golf photographers. In addition to capturing some of the sport’s seminal moments and photographing its greatest exponents – from Nicklaus and Watson, to Ballesteros, Norman and Faldo, and Woods, Spieth and McIlroy while covering more than 100 Major Championships, he has also been fortunate to travel the six continents and photograph most of the world’s most venerated golf courses. So why does he choose to live in Dornoch?... The unrivalled golf? The unrivalled light and scenery? The unrivaled whisky? (yes, Matthew describes himself as ‘an outdoor-living golf and whisky enthusiast’). Or perhaps, as Queila would more succinctly put it, ‘it’s the quality of life here’.

As your hosts, Matthew and Queila are very happy to share their knowledge of golf, Dornoch and the wider Highland region, and will be pleased to advise you in relation to your 19th hole plans and any more general wishes or requirements.

About the golf

Remarkable Royal Dornoch and Golfing Beyond

Often acclaimed as one of the oldest and most natural links in the world, the golf course at Dornoch is truly one-of-a-kind. The dramatic nature of the setting is also something to behold. To adopt another quote from our golf writing friend**:

“The links is bordered by the Dornoch Firth and, for its entire length, by a beautiful sweep of pristine white sand. All around, mountains and hills fill the horizon and create the illusion that you are somehow playing golf on a stage.”

Royal Dornoch

Royal Dornoch’s Championship layout is not the only one to enjoy this setting, for the club has a second 18 holes, The Struie Course – a less demanding but very enjoyable challenge. There are several other first rate courses to savour when staying in the area, including Brora and Golspie to the north, Tain and Fortrose & Rosemarkie to the south and, as a special treat, you might try to arrange a game at nearby Skibo Castle. If you are travelling south, beyond Inverness, both Nairn and Castle Stuart are exceptional, while if you journey northwards towards John O’Groats, there are good courses at Wick and Reay and a magnificently appointed links at Durness.
