My nephew was married in Dornach at the cathedral. Both families stayed at the Dornoch Castle and the reception and rehearsal dinner were also there. It was the most beautiful place for a wedding. The pictures they took were amazing. They used all the vendors recommended by the hotel and were happy with all of them. The hotel and food were great. The rooms are very quaint and comfortable nothing fancy except for the honeymoon suite my nephew had. It looked just like you'd expect a castle room to look like. A huge bed and fireplace. They loved it. My father had the room next door and it was very nice. Both of those rooms were on the west side. You could walk out from the hallway onto a stone balcony. The town of Dornoch was so much fun to explore. The men all played golf the day before while the girls went shopping. There are a lot of cute shops and restaurants on the main street. The atmosphere, the scenery, the bagpipes, the minister, everything was perfect. I would recommend this as a wedding venue to anyone or just a beautiful spot to vacation.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Castle is located in the historic town of Dornoch across from the stunning 13th century Cathedral, boasting stunning views of the town. The central position of the hotel makes it ideal for exploring Dornoch, home to the world famous Royal Dornoch Golf Course, which overlooks the breath taking golden sand beach. Dornoch is also well situated for those looking to explore more of what the Highlands have to offer. The historic Castle is built on the site of the original Bishop’s Palace of St Gilbert, who founded the Cathedral in the early 13th century. The building eventually sold on and in 1947 became a hotel after some extensive work, which maintain much of the character of the Castle as a stately, historic and comfortable home. The Castle boasts a total of 22 en-suite bedrooms situated both within the original castle and the modern garden extension. There is a variety of room types available including; standard, superior, deluxe and our award winning Old Courtroom. Due to the castle’s layout each bedroom has its own special ambiance, great care has been taking in creating a distinctive character in each bedroom. The Castle's restaurant has retained an AA rosette standard, through the exceptional work from the chefs. The malt whisky selection is second to none and can be enjoyed in the cosy stone-lined whisky bar with the roaring fire to protect you from the Scottish winds, in the summer the walled garden is the perfect setting to relax during the long summer nights. Coming Summer 2016: The Dornoch Distillery will be opening soon on the grounds of the Dornoch Castle Hotel producing 'Old Style' Whisky and Hand Crafted Organic Gin from scratch. ... more less
