I based myself here for eight days to walk the hills and try some off-road biking. Hosts Phil and Ann are keen cyclists and can give lots of useful tips. The B&B is right up against the main railway line with its own footpath level crossing leading straight out to four Munros - but you're never disturbed by the few trains that pass, nor by the busy A9. Balsporran is about a close as you can get to the centre of Scotland, so it's not far to drive round to Lochaber and Fort William, up to Aviemore and the Cairngorm summits, down to Pitlochry and the Perthshire hills, or the Monadhliath Mountains. The B&B is very comfortable, quiet, and well equipped with a guests' lounge and good rooms. Stay here!
