  • Family beachfront park with a huge range of facilities for all ages
  • Kids' and teens' clubs, bowling and adventure playground with zipwire
  • Pool, crazy golf, amusements, bar lounge, shop and restaurant

Cor, wish my Grannie’s crib was as cool as this: slap bang on the beachfront, with an indoor pool, Jacuzzi and sauna, tennis courts and Costa coffee on tap... Grannie’s Heilan’ Hame Holiday Park sits beside the powdery white sands of Embo beach near the historic town of Dornoch, in prime position for a romp around the Scottish Highlands.

If you’re bringing the family, rest assured that the chances of the little ones getting bored are slim to none. Aside from the pool- and beach-based shenanigans, there’s mini ten-pin bowling, crazy golf, an amusement arcade, kids’ clubs featuring the Starland Krew, plus a great adventure playground with a zipwire, swings and slides. Older children and teens can get stuck into making their own animated movies or hit the decks at a DJ workshop in the Freestyle club.

Grownups, meanwhile, will appreciate the smashing views across the Dornoch Firth - bottlenose dolphins and seals are regularly seen frolicking in the foam - plus the extensive facilities, which include a bar lounge and restaurant, evening entertainment, shop, launderette and more. Grannie would definitely approve...

Great break away 29/05/2018

    The friendly and welcoming staff throughout the complex.
    The facilities for children, including the large park area, crazy golf and the swimming pool.
    The well stocked shop.

    The site is in a fantastic location for access to the beach and for visiting nearby attractions, such as the fantastic Dornoch Cathedral and Dunrobin Castle (the Falconry show should not be missed).
    Out of the site and right at top of the road takes you to a conservation area, where we saw what was maybe 100 seals basking in the sun on the sandbanks. There were also some new born Highland Cattle, which was great to see.


    Pitches are uneven and there were large holes in places.
    Toilet blocks could do with being cleaned more frequently.
    Poor service at the bar in the entertainment lounge, took 10 minutes for 4 people to be served..

Local attractions

Dornoch, the pretty little town nearest to Grannie’s Heilan’ Hame Holiday Park, has a range of small independent shops, a cathedral dating back to 1224 and one of the best championship golf courses in the world.

Otherwise, if you fancy a day trip, there’s a decent variety of things to do nearby. For a fairytale castle with a French flavour, take a tour of Dunrobin Castle, which stages falconry displays twice daily in its beautiful grounds; Black Isle Wildlife Park has child-pleasing meerkats, lemurs and zebras; whisky lovers can wet their whistle at the Glenmorangie Distillery; and the spectacular waterfalls at Falls of Shin are one of the best places in Scotland to see salmon feats of derring-do as the fish leap upstream between May and September, or to go geocaching, walking and cycling along the forest trails.

If you don’t mind travelling a bit further, it’s an easy drive to classic destinations such as John O’Groats, Loch Ness and Ullapool.
