Three well equipped properties within a traditional stone u-shaped steading conversion. The cottages are set on a small working farm in the Scottish Highlands with wonderful views of the Moray Firth and Black Isle. Each cottage has a small south facing patio to enjoy during warm, sunny weather and wood burning stoves to keep you warm and cosy when it is cooler. The properties sleep 2 to 6 and are suitable for couples and families. Dogs are welcome.
Situated 10 miles east of Inverness they are an excellent base to tour the Highlands and Moray areas, take a cruise down Loch Ness and enjoy the scenery whilst Nessie spotting, discover history at Culloden Battlefield, Fort George and Cawdor Castle, view the Moray Firth dolphins from Chanonry Point, taste world-famous whisky at the Speyside distilleries and have a day of adventure at the Cairngorms Mountains.
Barbara is a very friendly and caring host. The location is quiet yet close to the main road. The Barn at Balblair is a perfect home base if you want to explore the region. Thank you for your hospitality, Barbara :-)
We have spent many holidays at Balblair cottages and hope to visit many times more.
The welcome from Barbara and her family is always warm and so friendly and nothing is to much trouble, always able to suggest places for meals or visits not that the amazing visitors pack and information file is not full of idea's.
Its difficult to explain how comfortable you feel at Balblair and the location is very central for both shopping and visiting so many of those lovely and interesting places.
Balblair is somewhere that is lovely to visit but difficult to leave.
We had a great time at the Bothy. The accommodation is very comfortable, perfect for two people. All the facilities are top quality, with an excellent kitchen and bathroom. The outside area is a pleasant place to sit and eat in fine weather. The location is very good with easy access to fabulous beaches at Nairn and shops etc in Inverness. Some very interesting places are just a few minutes away, e.g. Culloden battlefield, Cawdor castle, Fort George. The customer service is spot-on - Barbara is friendly and helpful and the perfect host.
