“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed 8 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

3rd stay in location 1st stay at the cottage & it was great. Warm welcoming & attention to detail was obvious. Scenery from the main living room window was spectacular. The bird feeders in & around the garden were great & it was fun filling them & watching the red squirrels partridge & even a woodpecker come in to feed. Inshriach forest is right on the door step & the walks are, well, as long as you want them to be. No need to go anywhere but there are many things to do locally or even head into Aviemore if you fancy a bit of skiing or some outdoorwear shopping. Summer or winter its a great holiday with plenty to do & coukdnt find a more comfortable cottage to stay. Looking to get back as soon as. Would highly recommend.

Cottage is quietly located nearby Kingussie and it is very good equipped with really everything! It has superb views on the mountains, it was a shame that we had only booked for a week. There is a lot of wildlife (birds, deer, squirrels) around the cottage. We are definitely coming back!

Second visit to this holiday home and everything was perfect. Lovely location and as an added bonus it even snowed for us. A lovely Xmas tree was also there and it was like home from home. Thank you Judy. Perfect. Margaret and Peter Preece

“Home from home & far from the Madding Crowd”
Reviewed 14 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Only a 10 minute drive from Kingussie but the wonderful feeling of peace & tranquillity. Unlike some rental properties, Balnabruaich is stocked with everything you could want...more kitchen utensils than I have at home! A spacious property with magnificent views of the hills with a welcoming homely feel about it. The owners Judy & Jules are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The website doesn't do the property justice but at least it isn't a "modern" website that contains photos of just a tap or a cushion!

“A perfect holiday house !”
Reviewed 21 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Balnabruaich is a warm and comfortable cottage and very well equipped. It is set in a most peaceful place on the edge of the forest and moors, and it is an ideal base for exploring the beautiful areas of Rothiemurchus and Inshriach. Red squirrels and many kinds of birds are just outside the the windows – entertainment laid on !
