About Us

Hogmanay picnic at a loch near Dornoch

Having been regular and enthusiastic visitors to Dornoch since we were kids, we are really delighted to have finally bought ourselves a base here, and to be able to offer other people somewhere really lovely to enjoy the fabulous sights and experiences of Sutherland.

During challenging careers “down South” in the food industry and management consultancy, we have always enjoyed unwinding in Highlands. Jim is an enthusiastic golfer and fisherman; Ginny loves painting, and we both enjoy walking, picnicking and soaking up the deserted, natural beauty of North-East Scotland – in all seasons!

Embo House makes an ideal base for golf parties, large groups and gorgeous weddings. We can tailor your stay in many ways, so please do ask and we’ll see what we can do!

We look forward to welcoming you to Embo.

Jim and Ginny Knox
