Dornoch Firth & Ardgay

This is a coast deeply indented by 'sounds' and 'firths', which used to entail a weary (though scenic) drive round them. Now, however, they are crossed by sweeping bridges and the Dornoch Firth is no exception.

Exploring The Town Itself

Dornoch is a marvellous little town on the northern shore of the Dornoch First that is full of character and further distinguished by its fabulous beaches. It has an internationally famous golf course, a 13th century cathedral and 16th century Bishop's Palace. Interestingly, it is also where the last burning of a witch in Scotland took place in 1722.

Ardgay and Bonar Bridge lie further west near the head of the firth with loads of good fishing and hill walking on offer. It is also a good base for exploring the north and northwest of Scotland.

The Beautiful Surrounding Area

St Duthac Memorial Church

    The small town of Tain is Scotland's oldest royal burgh with its pretty church and the Tain Through Time centre that depicts its history including as a place of pilgrimage to the birthplace of the 11th century missionary St Duthac. A popular attraction is the Glenmorangie Distillery & Visitor Centre. The village of Portmahomack, near the tip of the Tain peninsula, has an interesting Discovery Centre about the local Picts and Pictish stones.

    Lairg is an attractive village lying inland, 11 miles north of Bonar Bridge on the A836 at the southern tip of Loch Shin. A few miles to the south of the village are the Falls of Shin providing a spectacular view of salmon leaping the falls to spawn upstream (June to September).
