The hill that sits behind the village of Golspie with it's imposing statue can be seen from miles around. A well worn path takes you up the front of the hill and a longer, more gentle path weaves around the back of the hill. With wonderful views from the top, the effort of the walk is well worth it for those fit enough to do so.

The Loch Fleet nature reserve is a wonderful local gem. Best accessed by following the road that takes you out past Golspie Golf Club, there is a world of nature and scenery to be explored. This really is a very special corner of Scotland which we return to time and time again.

If your legs will take you there, no visit to Golspie is complete without a walk along the beach. Head either east or west from the village and you will find miles of golden sand or stay in the village and enjoy the sea wall and pier area. Originally, the pier was the beating heart of Golspie as a fishing village and local signage is there to inform you of Golspie's past.

Five miles north of Golspie, Brora is smashing wee village with a lovely harbour area and fascinating industrial past which is unusual for a Highland village. Why not hop on a train from Golspie station and enjoy the scenic ten minute train ride.

Golspie Golf Course is a wonderful course which is very much on the circuit for golfers touring the North and which is a great asset to locals. The first eight holes are very much links course before turning in to a more inland terrain. It really is unlike any other course I have played and I highly recommend.

Neighbourhoods
12 miles south of Golspie, Dornoch is a charming historic town with lots to offer you as a visitor to the area. Well worth the short drive and we recommend that you take the small coast road which takes you around Loch Fleet where the views are spectacular and you are bound to spot some seal activity as well as a variety of bird life.
