We only stayed one night but it was perfectly fine. We were warmly welcomed by Fiona even though we arrived a bit early for check-in. The room was not large but the breakfast was and it was superb with homemade breads and jams. If you have a car, and most do, it's only two minutes to the center of Dornach,... More

We spent 2 nights in this lovely B&B located in a beautiful setting on the outskirts of Dornoch overlooking fields and the sea in the distance. Fiona is a wonderful host and provides a lovely breakfast including home made bread and jams. The rooms we had were very comfortable and even included a refrigerator which we have not previously encountered... More

Wonderful, warm hospitality in the countryside, only two or three minutes drive from Dornoch village center; beautiful views; peaceful setting; Fiona makes a great breakfast with fresh fruit in season; Fiona was also very helpful with the small problems I had; you will be in good hands. If you are playing golf at Royal Dornoch this is perfect; five minutes... More

This was our first trip to the east coast of Scotland en route to the Highlands and Fiona made us most welcome. If using a SatNav ensure you choose A9 after IV253HY, as we didn't and missed the entrance. Great views over the coast from the window of the conservatory. A wonderful selection of home made jams and preserves to... More

We've been coming to Dornoch for years thanks to one of the greatest golf courses in the world. Finding accommodation has sometimes been a challenge in the small town so we've been staying just outside in B&Bs and this was our best yet. It's maybe two minutes by car from town but situated on a rise above so there are... More

Auchlea made me feel at home during my stay in Scotland. Fiona is a born hostess and creates a friendly, warm atmosphere. I enjoyed my stay very much- not only because of the cosy and neat room but also because of the fantastic breakfast (fresh fruit salad each day), the great views, the lovely garden and the enriching talks with...

From when we first made our initial inquiry, Fiona was most accommodating and made booking our room easy. We stayed for two nights and had a fantastic time. Fiona was a brilliant hostess and made us feel very welcome. She gave us a lot of tips on what to see, where to go and how to get there in the... More

Fiona made us very welcome despite the fact that it was a very last minute booking due to the fact that the B&B owners where we were due to stop were called away to a funeral and had booked us into Auchlea for the night. We had a lovely ensuite room and the breakfast was really great and our dog... More

What a lovely location with great views across the fields to the sea and mountains beyond. And what a charming hostess Fiona who made us most welcome and looked after us very well. Everything about Auchlea was excellent. Lovely room with king size bed and ensuite. And we certainly had no smells as one of the reviewers below was suggesting.
