Normally you would have spotted me on a boat in Ibiza or having lunch in Monaco, I would have never expected to say I have found a place that is so wonderful if my partner says let's go away I instantly want to go to Skibo. It has quickly become a home from home for all the reasons everyone else...

Dornoch resident, Sutherland born, a privilege to see how this fabulous Castle has progressed to be probably one of the world's best clubs. Have been entertained there when it was a private family home and as a private club , lucky me! Amazing transformation in the last few years , the whole estate has been sympathetically improved to a model...

Perfect, in every way. Eye watering expensive, but if you have the money you will not regret it in any way. If you are a golfer, life doesn't get any better than this -- a championship course which gets almost no play, and 5 minutes from Royal Dornoch as well. Michelin-quality food and service. Heaven.

There are a few places like this in the world - Scotland has Skibo Castle. To extol the merits of this establishment would mean I would go on and on and on about the quality, the level of consideration for you made by the elite staff, and attention to detail in everything from your bar of soap to your ....

Surrounded by the Dornoch Firth on one side and partially by Loch Evelix on the other, this course is a winner. Well kept greens maintained by the knowledgable Greenkeepers, anyone playing this course could only be impressed by yet another spectacular golf course in this area. Mr Carnegie picked a beautiful spot!

I have held off reviewing Skibo because it is a very special and unusual place but I review many other spots and it feels unfair to the team not to write a review. The first thing to say is that Skibo is not a hotel it is a club. That brings real strength so if you like a personal, unique...

Happily, we only paid greens fees. Our host covered lunch and gave us a tour of Skibo Castle afterward. And so, since price wasn't a consideration, it is easy to compliment everything about the experience. The golf course is underrated; it really represents a great and beautiful challenge. The clubhouse and amenities are outstanding. The lunch was excellent. And staying...

Very fortunate to be able to stay a few days since it is a members only property. It is run in a superb way giving one the impression that one is a house guest in a castle of a bygone era. The standard of care and attention could not be improved and all the rooms are beautifully decorated with superb...

Four of us played golf and had lunch. An outstanding location in the Highlands was complemented by attentive and friendly staff who could not do too much for you. The food options were fabulous but not over-stated - a perfect day. I may not get the fortune to visit Skibo ever again, but I feel so privileged to have been...
