Dornoch Castle Hotel

An hour north of Inverness, this converted castle and tower is a spectacular wedding venue and a haven for whisky lovers.

A visit to this whisky bar is a special experience for novices and seasoned whisky drinkers alike offering as it does more than 280 malt whiskies. The bar also stocks and sells gin from Dornoch Distillery, which is run by Philip & Simon Thompson and often sells limited edition bottlings chosen by the brothers.

The bar is located adjacent to the hotel’s garden dining room which is a modern and spacious space and the chef provides excellent food for the discerning diner.

It has been awarded an AA rosette for the past 12 years. As the name suggests there is a lovely garden right outside with doors leading on to it.  The hotel has 22 rooms ranging from garden standard rooms to the deluxe ‘Old Courtroom’.
