Lovely B&B at an amazing location. Ideal if you're driving up or down the A9. Comfortable room, very good breakfast, friendly welcome. It's possible to eat in at night. A plus since the remote location!

Clean and comfortable accommodation. Meals are very good especially the vegetarian haggis. Breakfasts were equally as good. Friendly and welcoming owner. Very helpful and we were collected from the distillery after our tasting session and returned the next morning to collect our car.

This is an amazing place! I had a wonderful stay, Phil and Ann are fantastic hosts, warm kind, and gentle. The place has a lovely relaxed and peaceful atmosphere. The rooms and communal spaces are beautiful - wonderfully decorated and very comfortable. The pictures just don't do the place justice! Ann is an amazing cook, I am vegetarian and I... More

We stayed at Balsporran during our second night in Scotland, and it couldn't have been better. Ann and Phil were absolutely amazing to us, and made sure we were comfortable. We had dinner at the B&B as well, which was delicious; followed by a hike up the mountains nearby. I would absolutely recommend Balsporran to everybody travelling in Scotland, and... More

We spent our last night in Scotland at the Balsporran Cottage. It was about 4 hours from the Isle of Skye, where we were driving from and 2 hours to the Edinburgh Airport. Ann and Phil are the perfect hosts. The bed was very comfortable. We might the most delightful couple who were staying there as well. The hiking is... More

Is this this the most driven past B&B in Scotland? You can't miss it if you're driving up the A9 - and let's face it everyone has to do that from time to time - the white cottages between the the road and the railway at almost the highest point of both, the Drumochter pass. It always looks busy even... More

Absolutely beautiful location overlooking a glen with bubbling stream outside the front door. Very welcoming hosts.Comfortable bed, wonderful home cooked supper and breakfast. Vegetarian haggis was superb. Despite being close to the railway line we could barely hear the woosh of the occasional train

We only stayed for one night. Our room was lovely and cosy, with a comfy bed and everywhere was sparklingly clean. Fantastic decor throughout the whole house, we loved the colours. We had evening meal which we enjoyed very much. It was a good idea to have booked this beforehand as the hotel is quite remote. Breakfast was excellent too,... More
