Holiday Rental House
Wester Whinhill is a comfortable, modern, self-catering holiday cottage with stunning views over the picturesque Dornoch Firth. Uniquely for the area, it has a separate leisure room with heated swimming pool and sauna for the exclusive use of visitors to the cottage. The house is 5 minutes walk from a golf driving range, pitch & putt, fishing ponds, woods and beach. Set in a large garden with patio, decking, and gas barbecue - it is an ideal retreat - yet only one mile from the town centre with the world famous Royal Dornoch Golf Club. The cottage is well suited for families and we have a cot and 2 high chairs if required. One well behaved dog is welcome by arrangement (£25 charge)...Wester Whinhill is a comfortable, modern, self-catering holiday cottage with stunning views over the picturesque Dornoch Firth.
