“4th Dog Bollocks Weekend”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Fantastic views and accommodation. Photos etc don't do it justice. Party of 17 and we had all the room we needed. Even some party games which lasted all weekend. Cosy beds and roomy bedrooms. Under floor heating was a boost and plenty of seating. Even managed r/c car racing along the full length of the house.
Easily found and quick trip to Dornoch for those items we forgot.
Highly recommended. No wifi for the high flyers, but a break from all that was good.

The house is stunning, in a beautiful private location. 18 of us spent our New Year break at Balvraid Steading, was perfect size for our group with gorgeous rooms and the house had everything we needed for a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

Would highly recommend.
