The Perfect Antidote to Winter is a Coorie Holiday in Dornoch

As summer comes to a close and the trees are starting to lose their leaves, it’s a sign that Winter is on its way.   Usually this is a time when we like to hunker down at home, but here in Dornoch we have the perfect Antidote to winter….Coorie (Scottish term ‘to snuggle, nestle’).

Coorie is the cosiest solution to those rainy days and dark mornings. Just like the Danish term Hygge, Coorie is about making the most of the shorter days and enjoying the magic of winter. Dornoch is the perfect place to embrace Coorie, the new Scottish lifestyle trend.

Here in Dornoch it’s the perfect environment to embrace the outdoors, with its miles of unspoilt beaches, spectacular hills and being surrounded by nature – it gives us a feeling of wellness. But after hours of exploration, you can look forward to finding yourself in a wee cosy pub or enjoying home baking and a warming coffee after a bracing walk, or just spending quality time with your loved ones in a highland cottage.

Many of us missed out on our usual summer holiday but perhaps this is the opportunity to try something different for your winter break and embrace the outdoors.   Whilst winter in Dornoch can be wild and rugged you may be surprised to know that we have around the same rainfall as London.  This makes it the perfect place for exploring a rich variety of history, wildlife, culture and stunning scenery which will capture your imagination.  Whilst back in the town our friendly locals love nothing more than to share their local knowledge and produce.   Dornoch town has many cosy highland hideaways to choose from, and with several local pubs to enjoy a Whisky by a roaring fire after a day on the hills, it’s the perfect end to any day in Dornoch.

So, if you love beautiful landscapes, friendly locals, independent shops and a region that is rich in history and nature, winter is a glorious time to visit Dornoch.
