      Very quiet location for good nights sleep.

      Stayed here 2 nights. Room we were given was not room we had booked but mentioned to owner and we were given a better room straight away. Very comfortable bed and lovely big bathroom. Tasty breakfast. We did not have dinner as menu not to my partners liking.

      Outstanding Experience - Highly Recommended!

      Simply outstanding! We keep comparing our other hotel, inn, B&B experiences within Scotland and keep saying “it’s not The Steading”.....Jayne and Stephen were perfect hosts along with the entire staff plus having a great chef in Andrew. The room was well appointed, clean, quiet and had plenty of space. Excellent breakfast and the dinners far exceeded expectations. And, of course, the golf in the area is hard to beat...... My wife and I highly recommend The Steading and look forward to a return visit.

      Great room, fantastic views to match the superb food. Amazing hosts and of course special thanks to Ozzie for his company and toy sharing. My one concern is how popular this place is going to get

      Wonderful B&B just a two minute drive to Center of Dornoch town. Everything was fantastic. The hosts, Steve and Jane, were warm and welcoming. The staff was truly great and friendly. We enjoyed two nights at the Steading. Had dinner one of the nights and it was quite enjoyable. The Steading is a great place to make your base for touring the Highlands, playing golf or just relaxing in te Dornoch area. Can’t leave out a mention of Ozzie, the Steading’s loyal and friendly Collie. Our experience was like spending a few days at home. Very comfortable and relaxing. Highly recommend.
