Towns & Villages

    Golspie is an attractive little seaside resort situated 10 miles north of Dornoch and is a good golfing base with a beach and a castle.

    The village of Golspie boasts a long sandy beach and there are a number of scenic walks around the area including one at the Big Burn with its spectacular waterfalls.

    There are a number of historic buildings too, including St Andrews Church dating from the 16th century and Dunrobin Castle. This is one of the grandest houses in the north of Scotland and is situated just north of the village.

    Dominating the skyline above the village is the 100 ft tall statue of the first Duke of Sutherland on top of Ben Bhraggie.

    The village has its own golf course and bowling club as well as tennis courts, and it also boasts its own swimming pool with fitness facilities. There are also many opportunities for loch and sea angling in the area. One unusual sporting venue is the local kart track which sees race meetings take place throughout the summer months.

    The latest addition to Golspie’s list of sporting attractions is the Highland Wildcat mountain bike trails. These have been designed for all levels of experience with different routes suitable for families and novices through to more difficult and technical trails for experienced mountain bikers. The most difficult trail features the longest free ride descent in Britain down from the summit of Ben Bhraggie.

    The village has a good range of local services including a number of shops and cafes. There is plenty of accommodation with several hotels in the village as well as B&Bs, guest houses and self-catering establishments.
