          Great location in the castle with plenty of free parking outside. Opposite the cathedral and with an excellent bar downstairs with a huge whisky collection. Breakfast was first class. Room facilities are pretty good. Reception is right next to the bar.

We are travelling up from Hull by train, not got times etc as they are not published yet. What would be the best way to get to Dornoch Castle assuming that the train line stops at Inverness ??
