A taste of luxury in a timeless Highland setting
Balloan Self Catering provides secluded and exclusive accommodation in one of the finest spots from which to explore the wild and wonderful coastline of Caithness and Sutherland. A luxurious but still traditional Highlands farmhouse and cottage, Balloan is a place to rest and relax in comfort and in peace in a beautiful rural setting. It is also just 5 minutes walk from the seaside resort of Dornoch.
A tasteful modernised property, Balloan combines clean, fresh and contemporary touches with a solid and very real sense of the past, creating an authentic yet up-to-date property to relax and unwind in.
A perfect destination in the Highlands
As one of the key destinations on the North Coast 500, Dornoch is an oasis of calm and rest after the long and rugged roads of the route. Set back from the main route north, Dornoch has a timeless setting – wild, beautiful and natural – and a perfect place to enjoy walks on the unspoilt, award-winning, white sands of the beach on the Dornoch Firth, to play a round of golf on the celebrated Links course of Royal Dornoch or to visit the town’s 13th Century cathedral.
Dornoch is an ideal location from which to explore the Highlands, with something for everyone –whether the most dramatic and romantic castles in Scotland, the incredible harbour of the Whalligoe Steps, the untamed power of the Falls of Shin or even the most northerly tip of Scotland itself – John O’Groats and the chance to see the remarkable Duncansby Sea Stacks.
Balloan House forms part of a traditional Highland farmhouse. It has its own private entrance, a sitting room, a fully equipped family dining kitchen and a small utility space. There is a full SKY package and a good broadband connection. Each bedroom is set up as super king but can be split to make twins, giving more flexibility. Perfect for two to six people. There is plenty of space for cars.
