Stunning luxury holiday house sleeping 17, for special occasions in a spectacular Highland coastal setting

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Balnakeil House, Durness, Sutherland, sleeps 9-17 in 9 bedrooms.

Balnakeil House is a 5-star A-listed Highland mansion with 9 bedrooms, sleeping up to 17. Now renovated and restored, it has been refurbished with a combination of Scottish Anta interiors and Indigo furniture to provide a unique and luxurious experience. A fabulous setting for family holidays and special occasions with friends.

The setting is magical - somewhere to truly relax and enjoy the vast land and seascapes, deserted beaches and spectacular sunsets. All rooms have a breathtaking sea view or look out onto the majestic hills of North-West Sutherland. A step out the back will take you onto the white sands of Balnakeil Bay, while out the front there is a courtyard setting with southerly aspect.

Whilst inside the house, enjoy a timeless decor of earthy colours in sympathy with the surroundings, solid wooden furniture and heated slate floors. The superbly equipped kitchen with an Aga at one end and a stove at the other, separated by a 4.5m long oak table, makes the perfect spot to gather and socialise whilst preparing and enjoying meals. Next door, the games room is full of fun and games to keep the young at heart entertained, whilst those requiring quieter moments can rest in the sumptuous drawing room upstairs, with a glorious view over the beach.

The 9 bedrooms are welcoming and exceptionally comfortable, with crisp white linen over memory foam mattresses. Each room has a story to tell with the clue being in the name, whether it be Lord Reay, the Armada, or Rob Donn.

Balnakeil House is a deluxe holiday house that, once experienced, will never be forgotten - even though the drive is long, once you arrive you are well rewarded and will never want to leave.
