Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

60th Celebrations
Me and my family stayed in Carnegie Cottage for a long weekend to celebrate my Mums 60th Birthday. The cottage was outstanding, incredibly clean and perfectly located in Dornoch for getting about. For it being just off the square, it was very quiet in the evenings and parking was no problem at all. Its super cosy and has a perfect size garden. It also caters for everything for anything you could need with loads of room for the whole family. The wee stove in the living room was a perfect touch to the wintery nights with the added bonus of access to Netflix, Disney + and Amazon Prime. The personal touches to the cottage really do make it feel like a home away from home. Thank you for letting us stay in your perfect cosy cottage!

Birthday treat
We went as a family for a special birthday and the cottage certainly made it special. It is spotless. Comfortable and warm. Beautifully appointed with very very comfy beds. The kitchen has everything you need for a self catering break. It is deceptively spacious with a great garden. We got two cars parked easily right at the front door. It could not be more central. I hope if you are reading this that you can understand that this is a perfect accommodation. Thanks.

Absolutely beautiful
We stayed at the cottage last week. Me my husband and 2 young children. I can not not recommend this cottage enough. Everything about it was perfect. Spotless & clean. The kitchen had everything we needed. Very cosy. A private garden with a secure gate which was ideal for the little ones. The comfiest bed we have ever slept it. Walking distance from the beach & the little shops. Tasha was very helpful and responded very quickly to messages throughout making the booking. We will definitely be booking again.

Wonderful!
We just got back from 4 nights in Carnegie Cottage and I can't praise it highly enough! Immaculately clean and furnished to a very high standard, and everything you could need is provided. There are lots of little personal touches which makes it even more special. The covered area in the back garden, with chairs and table, was an unexpected bonus and allowed us to spend time outdoors, though in the summer we would have made use of the lovely patio. Location wise it is excellent for touring and golf. Dornoch itself is a lovely little town. Most of all, though, Tasha the host was extremely responsive to even the smallest query and had such a delightful and friendly manner when dealing with her. This just completed what was already a great experience!

Beautiful cottage in a stunning location
I’m just back from a great stay at Carnegie cottage with my family. The cottage was beautifully presented, spotlessly clean and really spacious. Tasha’s communication was great; everything had been thought of by the host! You’re well situated for both the incredible beach and a toddle to the lovely local shoos. Dornoch is a lily beautiful place! We’ll definitely be back ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

2 night stay at start of June 2023
Excellent accommodation and would return tomorrow if I could! I won't hesitate to return to this lovely cottage next year for my annual golf visit with my 3 mates. Tasha has been great and really easy to deal with for any minor queries to assist with our stay. Cottage is very well presented and would recommend to friends and family anytime. Cheers, Stewart

Perfect Highland Cottage
We were lucky to stay in this lovely highland cottage for 4 nights. It is exactly as per the photos. We found it to be comfortable, cosy, spotlessly clean and well maintained. It is very well equipped, we cooked most nights and had everything we needed. We really liked the wood burner and the garden is a sun trap. Natasha the host was helpful and friendly and very responsive. The cottage is handy for the beach and is right in town. Dornoch has lots of great little shops cafes and restaurants including a bookshop and a baker that does delicious doughnuts. Don’t miss the beach, it is stunning.

Best place in Dornoch ❤️
We just spent the weekend with friends at the stunning Carnegie Cottage. The entire cottage was spotless and so well equipped with everything you could need for a break away. We were taken back with how well the place has been decorated and finished, a true gem! A short walk to all the fantastic, friendly local shops, restaurants, pubs, golf course and beach! We cant wait to book future visits here. A massive thank you! A&C x
