The coastal village of Golspie lies about 50 miles (1 hour) north of Inverness and can be reached from Edinburgh or Glasgow in 3-4 hours by road (the A9). It is well serviced by Scotrail trains which run between Inverness and Wick on the Far North Line. Inverness Airport is a convenient hub for those travelling from further afield, with frequent flights from the South available with low cost airlines Easyjet and Flybe.

The Log Cabin is located 2 miles inland from Golspie village, a short way up the beautiful Dunrobin Glen. The local coastline is rugged, undeveloped and dominated by wide sandy beaches with occasional rocky outcrops. Many varieties of sea birds can be spotted and seals, dolphins and otters are regular visitors. The hills and glens inland are similarly wild and unspoilt and red deer and birds of prey are often seen.

From the Cabin you can look out towards the summit of the imposing Ben Bhraggie with its statue of the First Duke of Sutherland surveying the surroundings. The First Duke can also be seen from the grounds of nearby Dunrobin Castle. This magnificent castle has been the seat of the Duke and Countess of Sutherland for over 700 years and is well worth a visit. There are many other wonderful local attractions for visitors from Whisky distilleries to Salmon rivers, golf courses to mountain bike trails. Below are links to some of our favourites.
