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.

Balsporran Cottage is a nice place but unfortunately it is stuck between the main road (A1) to Perth (with lots of trucks) and the train tracks right next to it, just under its windows. The house actually shivers when the trains pass. Unfortunately, that information was not apparent neither on their website nor on that of the Scottish tourism board... More

Set high up in pass near Dalwhinnie here you can enjoy quiet, a good breakfast, lunch and dinner if you like. Friendly hosts, good local walking, great guests lounge with a fire and excellent bedrooms too. They have an attic double which is very good value at £50, great view out the roof window.
