Dunrobin Castle and Gardens

This 189-room castle was home to the dukes of Sutherland for 800 years.

Reviewed By Larry B - Prince George, Canada

We were late in the year to truly appreciate the Gardens. The trophy rooms off to the north of the Gardens has one of the most intense collections of game trophies mixed with mementos of a different era. I was more fascinated with the architecture of this building than that of the castle. We debated spending the time sitting in the damp to watch the falcons fly but we were very glad we did. The falconer gives a great talk on birds of prey and the antics of his feathered menagerie is impressive. if they fly, don't miss it.

Big Burn Walk

Reviewed By Ed D - Rugby, United Kingdom

A lovely way to pass a couple of hours. We ended up walking a bit further. Absolutely amazing colours in the greenery. Small car parking- free, but not too many people around. Very relaxing

Carn Liath Broch

Reviewed By DanFHarvey

Certainly worth a look if you're passing; nicely preserved, with even a couple of roofed bits still intact. I would have awarded five stars, but hurt my head on one of its low ceilings, like the punchline of a slapstick joke started aeons ago.

Golspie Golf Club

Challenging 18-hole layout that offers a mix of links, heath and parkland along with panoramic views from practically every hole.

Reviewed By gastronaut_11 - Perth, United Kingdom

Might be overshadowed by Royal Dornoch, but certainly worthy of a visit. Good variety of holes. Excellent greens and very well maintained.

Loch Fleet National Nature Reserve

Reviewed By Lizzie0909 - Inverness, United Kingdom

Take the road from Golspie signposted for Littleferry. There is a roadside car park for half a dozen cars. The gate is opposite.
Flat paths lead to the loch side. Interest at this time of year is Fungi, which there is a good variety of. In the summer look out for Dragonflies. The trees are interesting at anytime of the year.
This is a walk that is suitable for all ages and all abilities.

Duke of Sutherland Monument

Reviewed By Andrew M

Climbed first thing in the morning on a Monday in December. Ice had formed on all the vegetation, and was very foggy. Once we got above the clouds it was beautiful. Clear and sun was shining. The "Wee Manny" is a great end to an incredible hike. Came across 6 beautiful deer in the fog. Takes 1.5 hours on the way up, 1 hour on the way back, taking the long way round the back.
