Christmas Family Celebrations at Embo House

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Embo House, as we prepare to welcome our first guests over Christmas and New Year.

Embo House is now a Dornoch wedding venue!

Embo House is starting to show its capability as a Dornoch wedding venue, with the very lovely Agne and Jerry using it as the base for their celebrations in October 2018. Luckily, it was a fabulously dry and warm weekend, even though it was nearly November.                    […]

Previous owners, lovely Louise and Joe were celebrating Christmas there, but we managed to effect a switch on 27th December – well 28th really, as we arrived at 4 am, having done battle with horrendous […]
