Introduction.
Rhives House B&B, a grade B listed building, is situated in the village of Golspie on the east coast of the Scottish Highlands. The warmest of welcomes awaits guests. Early breakfasts, late check-ins and all-day access are available and a homely atmosphere is very much in evidence.

Property
Completed in 1840, Rhives House is one of the oldest properties in the village of Golspie It is noted for its distinctive “crow-step” gables and Scottish baronial drum tower. Set just outside the village it provides a peaceful place to get away from it all but remains within walking distance of the various shops, inns and cafes dotted along the village high street.
Golspie is well connected to public transport both by road and rail. Situated at the start of the footpath up to Ben Bhraggie, Rhives House offers spectacular views down over the village, across the Dornoch Firth and beyond to the Cairngorms.

Rhives House has just two rooms so booking is advised. “The Linnet” is a cosy double room which also accommodates a single bed and has its own adjacent shower room, all housed in a quiet and peaceful area of the property. “The Finch” is a spacious family room boasting a king-sized bed, plus two singles, a seating area and a private shower room opposite. All accommodation is on the ground floor, is non-smoking and features TV and tea/coffee facilities.
A beautiful, expansive lounge is available for guests to either meet fellow travellers, watch TV or sit and read selections from the ever-expanding Rhives House Library. Free Wi-Fi is on hand throughout the property for sharing holiday snaps or catching up with e-mail.
Outside there is ample, secure off-street parking and a large garden in which to sit and marvel at the magnificent almost two-hundred-year-old cedar tree situated within the grounds. A picnic bench is provided and safe stowage of bicycles is also available.

The Private House Stay's Guide

East Sutherland

East Sutherland lies north of the Dornoch firth until the start of Caithness above Brora. The county also stetches westwards to Ullapool although its definition can be a bit confusing as most of it has a Inverness-shire postcode and is thus identified by Private House Stays as North Highlands. The area has some good farming land as well as the usual beautiful highland scenery, dotted with whisky distilleries, lochs, rivers and mountains. Dornoch, Tain, Golspie and Brora are all highland towns with their own interesting histories and culture. Dornoch has a world famous championship golf course, the bird watching and coastal scenery are spectacular and the Falls of Shin are also recommended for a visit.
