Welcome

Larachan House above was the old Spinningdale village school, and attached Schoolhouse Cottage was originally the Schoolmaster’s house. This Victorian cottage has been modernised to provide first class accommodation and homely comfort.  A fully equipped self-catering cottage set in lovely gardens and situated overlooking the sparkling waters of the Dornoch Firth.  It is an ideal way to explore the county of Sutherland and experience the magnificent  scenery of The Scottish Highlands.

The nearby towns of Dornoch, Tain, and Bonar Bridge offer independent shops, supermarkets, cafés, antique shops, pubs and restaurants.  Miles of golden sand beaches can be found at Dornoch, Embo, Golspie and Brora.  The Highland capital of Inverness with all its attractions is 40 minutes by car and convenient for the airport.  Many Whisky distilleries in the area offer tours.

We are on the North Coast 500 (NC500) Touring Route. An ideal way to explore the county of Sutherland and experience the magnificent scenery of The Scottish Highlands. The NC500 is your highway to stunning deserted beaches, artisan distilleries and delicious fresh seafood, picturesque lochs, historic golf courses and beautiful castles, a diverse array of wildlife and enough outdoor activities to tire out even the most active of adventurers.
