“An Excellent Stay at Balblair Cottages”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed in the Barn at Balblair Cottages and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cottage has every amenity that you can think of, and is really comfortable. It is in a perfect spot for getting out and about and exploring the area. I would highly recommend this.

“The Perfect Holiday”
Reviewed August 5, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I stayed in The Barn at Balblair Cottages with my husband and 17 year old son. We had a warm and friendly welcome from Barbara who had thought of everything.

The Barn was faultless, immaculate and cosy . The location was idyllic and Barbara had a raft of information and tips on trips and things to do.

A 20 minute drive to Inverness gives you a wide range of options for eating out and shopping and the town of Nairn is 6 miles away with a lovely beach, leisure centre and local shops.

I would recommend this for families and couples.

“Superb”
Reviewed January 25, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Booked one night at Balblair Cottages at very short notice. Owner was extremely flexible and very welcoming. Very slick operation with minimal fuss. Cottage was beautifully furnished, fully stocked with all kit required for a short stay and extremely clean. Will definitely use again in the future.
