Real guests • Real stays • Real opinions
Conveniently situated just off the A9 route for the North Coast 500 in the picturesque hamlet of Clashmore, approximately 3.5 miles from Dornoch. Along with a very warm welcome, Number 1 Kildale offers recently renovated comfortable and spacious en suite accommodation for 2 people within the owners own home but with the benefit from its own private entrance which provides guest independence and a degree of seclusion if desired. Tea and coffee making equipment is available in the room. The outlook from the window is of a lovely garden and a half acre plot laid to grass and planted with specimen trees. The property also benefits from peaceful rural surroundings and a glimpse of the firth. There is an option of a super king or 2 full single beds made up on request. A variety of breakfast options are included and served out in the well equipped garden room, this area boasts comfy chairs for relaxing and more facilities to make drinks and snacks, plus maps, general information and games for the sole use of guests during their stay. Garaging is also available for the secure and dry overnight parking of bikes and motorcycles if required.
My husband and I are very pleased to be able to welcome you into our lovely home. We moved up to the Scottish Highlands from the Midlands after I took early retirement from a long, rewarding but challenging career in nursing. I have always enjoyed working and interacting with people plus my husband and I enjoy travelling and eating, so we both have some insight into what we would personally expect from booked accommodation, it just seemed a natural progression for us to become hosts. We have endeavoured to experience all the local and surrounding attractions in order to personally recommend or offer informed advice if desired to enhance your visit to this lovely area. We have worked hard to provide a homely private space for our guests to come to relax and enjoy the comfortable surroundings but equally to feel at ease to wander around the garden or join us for a 'blather'.
We are fortunate enough to be surrounded by beautiful countryside. This part of Scotland is well suited towards active outdoor pursuits such as golf, walking, cycling, wildlife watching and mountain biking. I have included the closest places of interest to give a feel of what is available locally. Clashmore itself is a peaceful community and the home of the historic Carnegie Hall which hosts a variety of functions and is a wonderful wedding venue. Dornoch is 3.5 miles away offering an array of individual boutique style shops and eateries it has a 13th century Cathedral and boasts the famous Royal Dornoch Golf Club and a glorious award winning beach. The oldest Royal Burgh of Tain is approximately 5 miles away and hosts all the general amenities you would expect to find in a town, supermarkets, fuel, museum, bank and caters well for everyday needs. It is also the home of Tain pottery and a famous single malt whisky distillery. Golspie is a village 11 miles away where you can find the 'fairy tale' style Dunrobin Castle and gardens which overlook the sea and is well worth a visit. The hill and outdoor challenge Ben Bhraggie dominates its skyline. Inverness is 41 miles away.
