The Great British High Street Judges visit Dornoch on Friday 18th November!

“The Great British High Street supports those working to revive, adapt and diversify high streets. Not for profit and government funded, we aim to provide resources for high street regeneration and celebrate innovative work going on in high streets across Britain.”

We are looking forward to hosting the judges of the Great British High Street awards this Friday.

They will arrive on Thursday night and experience a Gin Tasting session at the Dornoch Castle Hotel where they will then spend the night.

The next day they will have a tour of the town and take in the Carnegie Tea Room whilst enjoying coffee with members of staff from the Royal Dornoch Golf Club and the Tearoom itself before going to the Visitor Centre to meet with staff and then heading over the Carnegie Whisky Cellars to meet with members of staff from the Whisky Cellars, the Dornoch Castle and Links House.

After that they will visit Historylinks Museum, the Jail DornochCoast Candle, Kingcraig Fabrics, the Dornoch Bookshop and the Eagle Hotel before having lunch at Gordon House.

There is much much more to show them in Dornoch of course,  but in the short time they have here, this tour will give them a good idea of what Dornoch has to offer: independent shops, great food and entertainment, top class accommodation and a fantastic new Visitor Centre.

The winner is chosen by taking into account a combination of the outcome of the judges visit and the public vote. The voting closes at midnight on Friday night (so still a few days left to vote!)

The winner will be announced at a ceremony in London on the 12th of December. Fingers crossed for Dornoch!
