Come home to Links House

Links House is an award-winning 15 bedroom luxury hotel, located adjacent to the first tee of Royal Dornoch Golf Club, rated as one of the top golf courses in the world. Dornoch is a charming coastal town just an hour north of Inverness and well placed for exploring the North Coast 500. The North Coast 500 is a spectacular 500 mile coastal driving circuit that has gained international acclaim in recent years. It is now considered one of the great driving routes in the world. Many of those exploring the NC 500 do so by simply following the exact coastal route in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction. However we encourage driving groups to explore some of the less-travelled interior routes in combination with the coastal sections, for a more interesting driving experience.

Links House provides the perfect luxury base from which to discover the North Coast 500

Our Map showcases some of the best routes, for day drives starting and ending in Dornoch. The Weekender programme is for 3 nights exploring 2 of our suggested routes. The longer Explorer programme is for 5 nights and provides either 4 day-long road trips or 3 road trips and a free day to relax, golf or try out other Highland activities.

“The sky was the colour of a Norwegian model’s eyes. Tendrils of cloud spilt over snow-capped mountains before being whipped into nothing by the wind. And it went on and on. Past turquoise water like you find in the Maldives and islands as weird and as enticing as those in Ha Long Bay. This was, and I will take no argument on the matter, by far the most beautiful place on Earth, as far removed from anything we have in England, as Timbuktu”.

Jeremy Clarkson writing on the experiences of The Grand Tour on the NC 500 in April 2018
