Dornoch is situated on the east coast of Sutherland. It was once inhabited by the Picts and later became a Viking settlement. It was associated with the Saint Gilbert De Moravia in medieval times, and earned notoriety for conducting the last recorded witch burning in Scotland.
Modern Dornoch is a forward-facing town that hosts an industrial estate and is currently developing a business park. Primary and secondary schools provide education for the children in the region and Dornoch is also well supplied by transportation links, with an hourly bus service from Inverness and a railway station at nearby Tain.
