The setting is nice and the restaurant is clean and spacious. The portions are large, however we didn't enjoy the quality of the food.
Soup very salty and the half roast chicken had an aftertaste which usually comes from being frozen for a long time. The Skirlie wasn't particularly pleasant and the veg tasteless.
Rather expensive for what you get really.
If you like lots of food and quality is not the most important factor, then you should perhaps try it out.

Visiting family in Dornoch, and we wanted somewhere to go for Sunday lunch so we booked a table for four at the Carnegie Lodge a few miles away. We had seen the sign for this hotel many times but had never visited before. The hotel is in a lovely situation, slightly elevated with beautiful views over the Dornoch Firth. We were very pleasantly surprised - the dining room was quite large and nicely decorated and furnished with loads of staff on hand. It is obviously a popular venue with the locals, as the restaurant was full. The menu was large and quite varied, with an excellent choice of starters and main courses. We all ate different combinations, and the food was very good, with very generous portions. The roast dinners that were being served also looked excellent, and the wine list was quite good too.

We finished off with desserts and cheese and biscuits and went home for a much needed walk on the beach!

It was a great lunch and I would certainly recommend the Carnegie to anyone staying in the area.
