Highland Wildcat Trails

Voted as “Best Destination in the UK” by Mountain Bike Rider magazine, Highland Wildcat offers trails for all abilities that link directly to Golspie village and its local services.

National Cycle Route
The Sutherland stretch of the National Cycle Route passes through Golspie, Lairg, Tongue, Melvich, Kinbrace and Helmsdale. The route continues north through Caithness via Helmsdale, Kinbrace, Melvich, Thurso and John O’Groats.

Great courses within easy reach: Skibo Castle, Tain, Golspie, Brora, Bonar Bridge and the most famous of all, Royal Dornoch. The Championship course, rated 16th in the world, is classic links, with the first 8 holes following the natural grades of the old dune embankments, while the remainder skirts the sandy beaches of Dornoch Bay.

Salmon and Sea Trout fishing
This is available on Loch Brora (boat fishing only) approximately 40 minutes drive from Dornoch.

TroutQuest offers fly fishing holidays for salmon, sea trout and wild brown trout at our base in Ross-shire, and guided excursions throughout the Northern Highlands

Wild Brown Trout fishing
Good quality brown trout are available on Loch Buidhe with smaller fish on Loch Lagain, both lochs enjoying fine scenery and good sport. Bank fishing can be as productive, should it be too windy for the boat.

Cromarty Sailing Club
Even if you have never sailed, and feel that you do not want to commit in case you discover you don't like sailing, why not contact the club and try sailing for free.

How To Get Here

Pitcalzean House. Location of large self-catering property

A lovely, large house in wonderful grounds. It is an excellent place to stay, with lots of different, comfortable rooms, offering space for everyone. The children loved the freedom of the extensive grounds, where they could play happily and safely. A very well equipped kitchen, with lots of utensils, crockery, cutlery and glassware to cater for all occasions. The large dining room, with its lovely furniture, provided a beautiful setting for guests to wine and dine in style. Whilst in a peaceful and private setting, there is easy access to the A9, for those wishing to explore all that the area has to offer. The owner was extremely friendly, efficient and helpful with all our planning, thus ensuring our family reunion was a great success. A superb venue for a large gathering - we hope to return. ...
