Whisky drinkers will love visiting Dornoch, as the area is home to several well-known and established distilleries. Balblair Distillery, a few miles up the Dornoch Firth, was founded back in 1790 and is located in what is considered to be among the most picturesque settings for a distillery in the world. Book a distillery tour and sample some of their single malts for yourself. Glenmorangie Distillery, a few miles away in Tain, also offers guided tours that show how their famous single malt is made. If you really want to learn the finer points of whisky drinking, you could attend a tasting masterclass. Learn more so that you may fully appreciate your purchases from the distillery back at your Dornoch accommodation.
Head to the beach
The unspoilt beaches around Dornoch are perfect for kids, provided the Scottish weather is kind to you! The town's beach stretches from Dornoch itself to the Loch Fleet National Nature Reserve, where the whole family can enjoy birdwatching throughout the year, or spotting seals and otters during the summer months. Tain Through Time is a fascinating interactive museum that brings history alive for young children; visitors can meet figures from the past, touch historical artefacts, and try their hand at traditional crafts. Alternatively, get up close with local wildlife by taking a ride on a rigid inflatable boat (RIB) with EcoVentures in Cromarty. Their trips take you out to the Black Isle in the Cromarty Firth, a great place for spotting dolphins and other sea creatures.
