Balblair Self Catering Cottages, the Barn, was the best decision made when planning our holiday. We spent a week at the Barn and felt like we were "coming home" every evening from our daily excursions.
The bedrooms were spacious with plenty of closet and drawer space. The bathrooms were spotless and featured towel warmers and heated floors. The kitchen has a washer/dryer unit and dishwasher, along with the handy small appliances. And if you're staying during the colder months, there's a wood stove with plenty of firewood to accompany the heaters.
The view from the cottages, the proximity to popular attractions. And Barbara's thoughtful hospitality make it the perfect place to stay.
We saved a small fortune cooking meals at the Barn. A few trips to Tesco and other local suppliers helped make it easy to prepare home cooked meals.
We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Balblair Self Catering Cottages.
A very well appointed cottage worthy of its 5 star rating. Barbara is welcoming and very hospitable.
The grandchildren will miss the ponies in the back garden. This is our first visit and we hope not our last.
The location is cracking, beautiful countryside, sheep, lambs, a couple of horses and Bob the dog came to visit. The cottage was spacious, clean and clearly well looked after. Barbara was there to welcome us and was always available if we needed her. The location is great, just a few mins from Inverness airport....some obvious advice is that you are in the countryside so you need a car....thank you for a wonderful time and great memories....my family would all happily recommend Balblair cottages
We stayed in the Barn over Easter with our two children (7 and 9). The cottage was perfect; warm and cosy (it snowed on a couple of days), comfy beds and everything we could possibly need. It's perfectly located for Inverness Airport, Inverness and Nairn, but you're still in the countryside with beautiful views across the Moray Firth. Barbara and her mum and dad were very welcoming and helpful. We would definitely stay again, and would recommend to anyone planning a family holiday in Nairnshire.
We first stayed here 14 years ago and always said that one day we would bring any children we had to visit this beautiful area of the UK. In August 2017 we had saved up enough money to bring our 12 year old twin boys back to the Scottish Highlands and staying here again was the only place we considered - nothing could be better or more perfect.
The Strachan Family are lovely - friendly and full of lots of useful information. We loved feeding the ponies and playing with Bob the dog. The Barn is stunning - glorious views, peaceful and quiet, immaculate decoration, brilliant well equipped, warm and comfortable. We all slept brilliantly well and it was a welcoming 'home' to come back to after a day of exploring!
I could go on, but I almost don't want to say too many wonderful things, in case it becomes too popular and we can't get a booking again for next year!!
Thank you Barbara and family, we look forward to seeing you again next year.
