“Amazing cottage”
Reviewed October 14, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a great stay while hubby was running the Loch Ness marathon. Each morning was spent in the garden with a cuppa watching the deer and listening to the local wild foul chattering. Bliss.

The cottage itself was lovely, clean and comfortable as well as being very well equipped. We would love to come back for a longer stay next time

“Another great stay”
Reviewed September 24, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just returned from our 2nd stay this year. The cottage is immaculate and is perfectly situated away from the hustle and bustle but just 10 mins from Inverness. The wild life is amazing, one evening Deer ventured into the yard and always present in the trees around the cottage. Birds of prey and Adders if you look close enough. Great walks through the forest behind the cottage leading to their own loch where fishing by permit is allowed, also fishing at Dunlichity trout fishery is just up the road.
Peaceful, tranquil but close to Inverness and everything you need is what Balnabodach offers

“A beautiful Cottage, peaceful homely and comfortable”
Reviewed April 7, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

An ideal cottage with an equally considerate host in Elizabeth. If you want to stay away from the maddening bustle of a town and yet stay close to the town, i would recommend Balna bodach.

We stayed with our family of 2 adult children and had an enjoyable time, it was like a home away from home. The cottage is spotlessly clean and tidy and had all the appliances needed to make a family meal.

Thanks Elizabeth for an enjoyable stay.
