Description from owner

Description

Wester Whinhill is a comfortable, modern, self-catering holiday cottage with stunning views over the picturesque Dornoch Firth. Uniquely for the area, it has a separate leisure room with heated swimming pool and sauna for the exclusive use of visitors to the cottage. The house is 5 minutes walk from a golf driving range, pitch & putt, fishing ponds, woods and beach. Set in a large garden with patio, decking, and gas barbecue - it is an ideal retreat - yet only one mile from the town centre with the world famous Royal Dornoch Golf Club.

The cottage is well suited for families and we have a cot and 2 high chairs if required. One well behaved dog is welcome by arrangement (£25 charge)

We are committed to sustainable tourism, using ECO cleaning products,

and low energy, daylight bulbs. We have recycling bins for glass, plastic, paper, card & metal. We have Solar PV panels to provide electricity to heat the swimming pool and use 100% renewable energy supplier. We will have an electric car charging point in 2020
