Blog: Welcome from Todd and Liz Warnock

Links House at Royal Dornoch is about a journey to create a perfect locale, a perfect retreat and a perfect experience.  In so many ways, the experience is beyond golf. Rather, it is what golf and matchplay is all about.

If it is sport you seek we offer abundant quality – fishing, golfing, hiking, riding, shooting and stalking to name a few.  But there is so much more up here in the Highlands of Scotland.

Here you can feel history in your bones, smell the ages in the cool, seaside air and taste Spring in the scent of gorse bloom.  It is about being in the moment for more than just a moment; lingering there, walking there and for a while living there.   It is about creating space for reflection, a space in time, in mind and in heart.  We are hopeful quiet afternoon tea in our sitting room, single malt at sunset on our putting green, reading a book fireside in our library will be charming, thoughtful, and inspirational.  Like the view of the east Highland coastline from the Oystercatcher in Portmahomack, the view from the bench at the back Championship 7th tee, the view seaward from the base of Sutherland’s statue, the surrounding warmth of Dunrobin’s garden , the view up river at Loch Fleet, the serenity of Dornoch Cathedral in summer late evening light or the relaxing star-lit walk home from dinner at Luigi’s.

These are the reasons to return year-after-year, like the river’s claim on the salmon’s heart.  These are the inspirations that erase the shadows of the otherworld.  These are the wonderful places we go to extend the moment.  These are the reasons for Links House at Royal Dornoch.

So come visit, come feel the history, come play this wondrous course and come home to Links House at Royal Dornoch.
