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.
The Barn was the perfect home base for a week in Inverness. From the proximity to attractions, to the beauty and cleanliness of the cottage, to the hospitality of Barbara, the Barn proved to be our home away from home. The modern appliances and scenic surroundings (including the friendly horses) were a bonus.
We saved so much money by cooking warm dinners every evening and could pack much less thanks to the washer/dryer.
We would highly recommend the Balblair self catering cottages.
Lovely cottage, well appointed, in immaculate condition. Location is great, with amazing views over the Moray firth. Great WiFi speed too. Always a warm welcome from Barbara and her family.
Do as much or as little as you want. It's a great starting point for trips to all the visitor attractions in the area. And it's a joy to come back to!.
Can't wait until next time!.
