The Castle has stunning views over the Dornoch Firth with the hills of Sutherland and Ross-shire visible from the Castle.Dornoch Firth is a special protection area (SPA) for wildlife and a special area of conservation (SAC). Guests frequently spot dolphins in the firth and the seals are sometimes cheeky enough to watch us from the rocks right in front of the pub. Sea otters have also been spotted close by.
The Castle Hotel is in the only west facing village on the east coast of Scotland, which means that they have amazing sunsets. Portmahomack is also one of the driest places in Scotland. It is also famous for its safe, sandy beach and small harbour designed by Thomas Telford.
