“Dolphins on the beach”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

We walked the beach on a sunny day in September. Very pretty setting with the Golf club behind. Saw three dolfins swimming parallel to the beach and less than 50 feet away.People still swimming in the sea in September!

“wind, sun and sand”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Who would go to the Highlands for a beach? Well that's what you should do!
If you do not like the crowded beaches, if you love walking barefoot in the sea,
you will definitely enjoy the beach in Dornoch.
No stones, and miles to walk.
If you'd rather walk the coastal path, that's lovely too. Be aware of the flying golf balls!
It is to me the most relaxing place I could find.

I have visited dornoch beach and had lovely walks along here many times. It is clean and often you have it to yourself in the quiet season. Long stretch of golden sand. Worth a visit at any time of year

“Nice beach.”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

On the way back from Wick last Friday we stopped at Dornoch for a coffee and cake, and then took Meg, our ESS for a walk along the beach. Miles of beautiful golden sand, just the way it should be ;)
