The house is beautiful. It is a perfect location with awe inspiring views of the Cairngorms. It is very well appointed with a huge TV. Great garden for children. Loads to do round about - walking, swimming, cake shops, rope swings , Landmark, Highland Folk Museum, Easter Egg Hunts , Hot tub is brilliant with wonderful views. We had a ball. They even provided hot sunny weather in April. I would fully recommend this house.

“Fantastic Property/Location For Skiing”
Reviewed March 8, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This was our first visit to Balnacraig Lodge for an extended family (8 of us) ski holiday in the Cairngorms.
The Lodge is in a beautiful country location but only 20 mins from the Cairngorm Mountain and Aviemore. Perfect location for all the family with a stunning lounge and log fire and excellent kitchen for everyone to gather round. Highlight for everyone was using the outdoor hot tub to take the days skiing aches and pains away !!
We were also blessed with blue sky's everyday and excellent ski conditions which made this holiday as good as skiing in the Alps.

Also have to say that Andy (who owns the house) was extremely helpful with any queries we had.

If you are looking for a winter break in the Highlands then don't look past Balnacraig Lodge. It's a hidden gem !!
