I stayed with 2 friends while on hill walking expedition in the area. Owners are very welcoming and totally unfazed by muddy boots and wet gear. They have a drying room (very important for walkers) Rooms are cosy - in fact a wee bit too warm - we had to open the window. Nice decor. Kitchen, where we ate is... More

How anybody can give this fantastic B and B anything less than an excellent report is beyond me. I have stayed in a lot of B and B's over the years and this establishment is up there with the very best of them. The welcome is five star, the food brilliant, the location stunning and the hosts wonderful. After an... More

A friend and I stayed at this B&B for a couple of nights, visiting the nearby Dalwhinnie whisky distillery. Situated next to a small mountain stream, very calming to listen to at night, the house is surrounded by hills, great for hiking/cycling during the day. Warm, clean and cosy room, quiet surroundings (a train passes by every now and again,... More

We spent two nights here for a hillwalking trip. Rooms are very comfortable, good food and very welcoming hosts. Really couldn't ask for anything more and we hope to stay here again. The nearby A9 isn't noticeable inside the house and while you hear the odd train, it's a relatively quiet railway route and really isn't a problem.

Stayed with my dog for one night and was excellent. Lovely watching the trains go by and views spectacular. Location ideal as just off A9. Loads of good cycling options available for all abilities and preferences. You can do some excellent trail riding or take a gentle spin along the sustrans route on your doorstep. Owners very welcoming and friend,... More

This was just perfect for us. Cycling from Perth on cycle path route 7, this was an ideal stop for us and what a treat it was. We have passed Balnasporran while heading up the hills on a days walk and although next to a railway line, when we stayed there we never heard a train pass at all. The... More

I just stayed one night in Balsporran before I took part in the Drumochter Estate grouse count along with my German Shorthaired Pointer, who stayed in the room with me. The white house is easily spotted from the A9 and sits right by the railway line as it used to be used by railway workers prior to conversion to the... More

It's out a bit in the middle of nothing, the closest wee town being Dalwhinnie, so one needs a reason to come here, like climbing a particular Munro. But the B&B is lovely, the owners are obliging, and all the rooms are en suite.

My husband and I stay here for 2 nights and it was great. Ann and Phil were great hosts, we stayed up the first night chatting. We did some traveling the following day and the location was a great half way point to our desitnation.
