Very good only let down by problems with plumbing and heating.

  • 4 of 5

Nice house with good quality fixtures/fittings with the exception of the bathroom which is in need of updating and redecorating.

The central heating system wasn't working properly, sometimes not at all, and the water pressure was so low that occasionally no water came out of the upstairs taps at all. The toilet handle needed pumping three times before it flushed.

Sandra, the housekeeper, very kindly provided heaters so we were kept warm and having advised her of the problems we understand she is arranging for a plumber to attend the property.

A few more plates, cups and saucers etc would also we helpful especially if four people are staying.

Would recommend once above issues sorted out.

Enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the cottage. We liked the style of furnishings and particularly liked the extremely comfortable bed with lovely linen and soft pillows. The cottage is in a pleasant situation near the square and very quiet. The bathroom was a bit chilly for my liking and there was no mirror in upstairs bedroom to see to dry my hair.

Again another excellent stay at Dun Brae.

  • 5 of 5

This is my fourth stay at DB. Again it was very comfortable, clean and warm. I liked the king sized bed instead of the two singles for a great nights sleep. The location is superb for all activities in Dornoch but it is quiet enough to be relaxing. My only criticism is that some of the wood work on the porch is staring to need some attention. It's only cosmetic, but on approach to the front if you've not been before it looks a little tatty. Still this doesn't detract from a truly super holiday cottage.

A great place to stay and enjoy the Scottish Highlands in a wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cottage with lovely Scottish fabrics and furnishings. It was warm and cosy and the kitchen was adequately equipped. The town of Dornoch is a great place with a lovely café and whiskey shop, take away food shops and pubs where you can eat or just have a drink. It is also a good central point for visiting this part of Scotland.

Another excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay in a year at Dun Brae. Again the cottage was clean, tastefully appointed and the garden a delight to sit in of a sunny evening. There is everything you need for a comfortable, hassle free stay. Well equipped kitchen, cosy lounge and excellent position for the beach, town and golf course. Just one point of note is that if you are very tall the upstairs bedroom and shower/bath can be a challenge, but then it is part of the character of the cottage. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.
