The Log Cabin is located 2 miles inland from the Highland village of Golspie at the Southern end of Dunrobin Glen. It faces South and has magnificent views over hill and woodland ground and beyond to the sea and Dornoch Firth. It is accessed by a quiet secondary country road and is not overlooked by any other properties. It is surrounded by dense Birch woodland and has a delightful semi-wild garden. It is constructed of solid Scots Pine timber and has a very natural, warm feel. It is ideal for a family holiday and sleeps up to 6 people in 3 bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin and 1 bunk bed). It has a bath, shower, well equipped galley kitchen and large open plan dining/living room with log fire and tv/DVD. There is also a spacious, covered veranda with washing machine/drier and generous adjacent parking. In 2012/13 the Cabin received a Three Star classification under the Scottish Tourist Board verification and grading scheme.
My Name is Mark Scott. The Log Cabin was built by my Father Michael in 1974 and has been our family holiday home ever since. I run the bookings for the Cabin on behalf of my brother David and my sisters Claire and Serena. We all love the place and holiday there regularly with our own families and friends. We pride ourselves in this being a small family venture, not a large commercial enterprise and we keep the Cabin looking warm and homely, not empty and stark like many holiday cottages. The place has bags of character and many people have been returning to holiday there for years, drawn back by its individual character and charm. If you make a booking you will deal with me directly, not a call centre or an appointed agent.
My family has a long and happy association with Dunrobin Estate and as children we were all born and grew up in Sutherland. It is a beautiful area of Scotland, wild and remote with clean air and stunning mountain/coastal scenery. It is also extremely peaceful and unspoilt and one of the few places that I feel I can truly 'get away from it all'. I always return from a holiday there feeling refreshed and invigorated by having been so close to nature and so far removed from the pressures and demands of normal, hectic, everyday life.
Relax in a truly unique and very homely Cabin, with lovely views out into surrounding woodland and beyond to the sea and nearby hills. The Cabin is stand-alone and not overlooked by any other property. It has a pretty, semi-wild garden and secluded south facing patio on which to relax in nice weather. The large open fire in the living room is a great draw on cooler days and for evenings in front of the TV, reading a book or playing board games. Roe deer often stroll into our woodland and many sea birds and birds of prey can be spotted from the garden or through the large windows. There are numerous beautiful walks and (mountain) bike rides straight from the Cabin door over hill top or past dramatic waterfalls and down onto wide sandy beaches. And then there are the amazing golf courses..!
Absolutely perfect, couldnt have wished for more!
With all the necessities minutes away in Golspie we were amazed at how remote the cabin felt. Just what we wanted. The posted walks are great for families and we found more beautiful scenery heading West. The cabin is well equipped and felt like home from the moment we arrived with the open fire giving a very cosy air. Loved all the games that don't need batteries and we really enjoyed setting our own pace. The owners' preparations made us feel most welcome. We all had a memorable break and will visit again .
We have had a wonderful time staying in the lovely log cabin just outside of Golspie. Walks are in abundance on the cabin's doorstep, Scotland in summer is beautiful and rugged. We have been extremely lucky with the weather and only a few occasions of midges. The log cabin is very well made, with all the amenities you want, amazing views and wildlife on your doorstep! Highly recommended as a great holiday base.
This was our second time at the log cabin, and we already know we'll be back again.
As we've seen from the visitors' book everyone else seems to share our view of the peacefulness, homeliness, stunning setting, beautiful walks and great log fire.
This time we had our 16-month old with us and she was fascinated by everything in the garden/forest, the local sheep and the waterfalls on the Big Burn walk, (don't miss this walk).
Our highlights this time were: The falconry display and trophy museum at Dunrobin Castle, (is that really what aristocrats used to do!) Dornoch cathedral in the sunshine, seals basking on the sandbanks of Loch Fleet and the fact that there's no sound up there other than birds and sheep.
Thanks also for the kind welcome basket of food - a lovely treat. We feel 100% more relaxed going back home.

We stayed at the cabin for our third time in April this year. There is a magical feeling about this place which we as a family love and will return again sometime soon. We have recommended the cabin to friends and family.
What an amazing place set in an idyllic location, with plenty of beautiful walks and a great Golf course near by made this the perfect weekend away with friends.
2 miles to Golspie Beach, 5 mins by car or 25 minutes walking. Golspie has a beautifully wide, windswept and deserted sandy beach. Seals and dolphins are often seen close to the shore, alongside many sea birds.
Inverness airport is approximately 50 miles from Golspie. It takes approximately one hour to drive. Car hire is recommended for this journey although it is possible to travel by buses or taxis are available to hire.
Golspie (2 miles), Brora (5 miles) and Dornoch (10 miles) are the most convenient shopping villages and centres of interest.
