“5 Star holiday accommodation - YOU NEED TO BOOK NOW”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I booked this Bothy on the recommendation of Trip Advisor and both my husband and I were blown away with the excellent standard of the accommodation. The Bothy is small, quirky and cute – if fact we started to call it home by the second day - it comes equipped with a washing machine, dish washer, a fully refurbished kitchen and bathroom with underfloor heating and a lovely seating area outside.

We found this to be a fantastic spot for travelling up and down the coast and wonderful day trips like the Jacobite Railway which goes over the Harry Potter bridge, dolphin spotting and of course masses of castles. You will find a massive book of things to do also provided in the cottage.

Barbara and her family were the most wonderful hosts and were on hand if we needed advise for days out or places to eat.

I would honestly challenge anyone to find anywhere better to stay – and no, I am not a family member.

Lesley and Ian

“Excellent Holiday Home!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Myself and 7 other friends stayed in the Bothy and Barn cottages at Balblair for 4 nights in May 2014. Directions were perfect, easy to find the cottages! The cottages were clean and easily accessed with plenty of space for cars. We all thoroughly enjoyed our trip and would highly recommend Balblair Cottages! :)

“Cosy Cottage”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We arrived at around 4pm on the Saturday to be met by home made cookies on the table, Barbara soon popped over and explained how a few things worked.
The cottage its self was cosy with all you could need for a weeks stay - we just wished the weather was a bit colder so we could light the fire.
The location is good, 9 miles east of Inverness on the A96 within 15 minutes your on the A9 heading north towards Thurso or south towards Aviemore, within 25 minutes you're driving along the banks of Loch Ness. A nice quiet location, close enough to amenities such as restaurants or supermarkets.
