Discover Sutherland - Your Local Guide

The little village of Embo lies just a few miles north of Dornoch on the road to Loch Fleet. There has been a settlement at this location since at least the Bronze Age - a fine example of a burial cairn can be seen in the centre of the village at the entrance to the caravan park.

Embo was formerly a fishing village, as can be seen from the lanes and rows of little cottages that run in parallel down to the beach. However, nowadays the village is a centre for tourism with families attracted by the long, clean, sandy beaches.

The village has a small store and there are a few bed & breakfast establishments in the area. However, most of the tourist facilities are provided by the large caravan and camping park on the edge of the village. As well as providing self catering accommodation in static caravans, there are spaces for tourers and campers. The park also has numerous facilities including a bar, laundry and its own small swimming pool.
