No keep for castle owners

Dornoch Castle Hotel, in the heart of the Sutherland town of Dornoch, and owned by Colin and Roselyn Thompson, has gone on the market. The hotel occupies a stunning building dating from 1480 when the original building was built as a palace to the Bishop of Sutherland. The hotel sits directly opposite 12th Century Dornoch Cathedral. With one of the world’s best Links Golf Courses on its doorstep Royal Dornoch attracts golfers throughout the year from all over the world. Knight Frank’s partner David Reid is handling the sale and commented: “I have sold Royal Dornoch Hotel which attracted huge levels of interest and sold within a matter of a couple of weeks of coming on the market. With its amazing history dating from the 15th Century there is no question that Dornoch Castle Hotel will receive similar international interest and, the fact that it is trading very well with exceptional profits will appeal to a huge variety of buyers.
