Stunning week away at Oran Mor
Oran Mor is a very stylish and comfortable place to stay, highlighted by stunning views.
We received a very friendly and informative greeting from the owners and nothing was too much trouble.
We found some fantastic walks ideal with our dog and lots to do and see in the area. Dornoch being a really lovely town.
Our family and dog had a most relaxing week away and would love to return again.

Beautiful House and Setting
Oran Mor is a beautiful house in a beautiful setting! We enjoyed every moment we were there. The views from the house are breathtaking, but it’s also perfectly situated for local exploration. Plus, the owner was very responsive when we had questions.
Shifting, changing light and weather
We loved our visit to Oran Mor. A perfect blend of a modern house, incredible views, silence and comfort. We will be coming back.
Oran Mor is new, modern and spotless and the location and views are more than you can ask for - from the mountains to the sea. It's a perfect base for exploring the area. Genevieve, John and their son Josh are very outgoing, helpful and thoughtful providing a welcome pack upon our arrival. We had a great 10-days stay and have taken home wonderful memories. We'd love to come back for a return visit.
everything you'd need for a luxury break
I couldn't fault any aspect of Oran Mor - the organisation and communication before the holiday was top notch; Genevieve and John met us on the evening we arrived and explained a couple of the high tech facilities in the house that we would not have figured out on our own! We'd brought a stack of DVDs to watch without realising there wasn't a DVD player, but John very kindly let us borrow a laptop to connect up so we could watch them.
I've never stayed in such a beautiful holiday home (and we tend to hire a cottage whenever we go away, rather than stay in a hotel, so I guess we've seen a few) - it has been thoughtfully designed, furnished and kitted out with real care and love, which makes it feel so much more special than standard rental accommodation. It's been open for a year, but it still looks immaculate.
The surrounding area is beautiful - remote, but well connected by a short car ride to Dornoch, which despite it being March, had plenty of things to occupy us for the week we stayed.
We had a couple of bracing walks along the beautiful Embo beach, and enjoyed Skelbo forest trail (if you have wee ones, it's great as there are sculptures all the way round the 1.5 mile track to try and spot). We'd heard great things about Dunrobin Castle, which wasn't open (I think their season starts in April), which would be another great reason to return. We'd definitely stay here again in future.
Thank you to Genevieve and JD for being fantastic hosts and curators of a beautiful place to relax and get away from it all.
A wonderful house in a fantastic location
Excellent stay, home from home comforts, outstanding views, rural yet convenient location.
Oran Mor is situated in a quiet country location in the small settlement of Skelbo walking distance to beautiful sandy beaches and forests it is also just 4 miles and a 10-minute drive from the fantastic shops and restaurants of Dornoch with good access to the A9 for exploring the Highlands. A car is recommended when visiting the Highlands.
