Delightful Dornoch’s below-par prices

Old Tom Morris is a name that immediately brings one thing to the minds of anyone with even the remotest of interests in golf – history.

He designed some of the most famous courses in the game, with Royal Dornoch among his finest.

The legendary player and designer first laid eyes on the Dornoch links more than 130 years ago, and his influence can still be seen today.

And more than a century after Old Tom left his historic mark on the Highland landscape, dedicated golfers from around the world are still attracted to the course for a sporting break.

But instead of just spending a few days there, you could own one of Kirkwood Homes’ spectacular properties just yards from the course and spend as long as you like perfecting your game.

Royal Dornoch Golf Apartments from Kirkwood Homes offer luxury in a timeless setting and with just a few apartments remaining, time is running out on securing a sound investment.

Owning an apartment at one of the world’s top links just a par 3 away from the first tee is something many can only dream of, but the Dornoch development is more than affordable without being a millionaire.

For example, Old Tom’s hometown course of St. Andrews may hold the top spot for the best in the world, but with properties near the Old Course costing in excess of £1.8 million, it is something only an elite group can afford. A property near the world’s third best course, Royal County Down in Northern Ireland, which was also designed by Old Tom, will cost upwards of £1.5 million.

According to golfscape.com, Royal Dornoch is the second best course in the world, but it is the Major winner when it comes to owning a property nearby, with prices starting from just under £300,000.

The delightful Dornoch properties even rank higher than the fourth and fifth best courses in the world, with a home near Pebble Beach in California costing around £3.1 million, and a site near Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Australia setting you back £797,000.

With the likes of stunning Skibo Castle – a favourite of celebrities – just a short journey away, and the lure of the spectacular Highland landscape also something to savour, investing in a Kirkwood Home in Dornoch will certainly not leave you bunkered.

The apartments are not only perfectly located for the golfers but offer spectacular views of the Dornoch Firth and the Sutherland and Ross-shire hills, the town’s high street is only a short drive away. Dornoch is connected with its own airport and Inverness airport only an hour away, making visiting easy and bus and rail options also available as well as the town being accessible off the A9, the main route north from Central Scotland.
