Dunrobin is situated on a quiet no-through road, close to the centre of Lairg, a delightful Highland village set on the shores of Loch Shin. The village has a good selection of small shops, restaurants and bars, all within a short walk of the property. Lairg is particularly well placed for exploring the very best of the Scottish Highlands, being on an intersection of routes that lead to Durness and the far north, across to the west coast to Lochinver and Ullapool, or south to Inverness and the Black Isle. The renowned North Coast 500 route takes in some of the most spectacular scenery to be found anywhere in the British Isles. The area is also known for its many sporting activities with mountain biking, cycling, hill-walking, mountain climbing, kayaking and canoeing all being local pastimes. Fishing for trout and salmon is available nearby with a permit in season. There are numerous golf courses nearby, including Royal Dornoch and Golspie. There are superb walks along the shores of Loch Shin and for bird watchers there is a hide on the banks. Nearby places of interest include the Falls of Shin, one of the few places to watch salmon leaping close to hand, Dunrobin Castle, seat of the Dukes of Sutherland, and the charming historic village of Dornoch, with its sandy beach and 13th-century cathedral.
