“A West coast gem”

Reviewed 5 May 2014

If you want a Scottish break to remember then Balure House has everything you need. Surrounded by breath taking land and seascapes the house can be found nestled 200 yards from the road in amongst a beautiful woodland. The house caters for all, the interior is finished to a very high standard with plenty of space for everyone to relax. The social areas of the house a ideal for home cooking and long evening meals with friends, a home from home. The house is very spacious, the outside patio is ideal for BBQs and lounging and the extra games cabin away from the house is a perfect area to drink some beers and have some competitive table tennis games! The house is well equipped for every eventuality and i can't recommend it enough, i shall certainly be returning, truly stunning location. Thank you Angus and Rebecca, you went out of your way to make the weekend special.

Thank you, it was great you all had such a fun weekend, thank you for leaving the house in perfect condition, we would have hardly known you had all been there!! Best wishes Angus & Rebecca
