Had a great week at Balnabruaich which is a very well equipped and comfortable holiday home. Lovely views from lounge and the peace and quiet is awesome. Loads of wildlife in the garden which the grandchildren loved to see. Situated in a superb location for walking or cycling and easy access to Kingussie and Aviemore. Will definitely return and have no problem recommending the property to family and friends. Thanks for your hospitality.
Balnabruaich is located not far from Kingussie, set nestled on the edge of a magnificent pine forest. The surroundings are peaceful and relaxing away from the business of the main tourist spots. Yet you are still in easy reach of all the main attractions. Including the Highland Wildlife Park, Highland Folk Museum, Landmark Adventure Park, Loch Morlich, Loch An Eilien, The Strathspey Railway and The Cairngorm Mountain all well worth a visit! The house has everything anyone looking to self cater would need, there is a very well equipped kitchen. We loved the views from every window, there was wildlife everywhere. We appreciated the binoculars found sitting at the lounge window. The garden is super for children and dogs to enjoy. Everyone in our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we are intending to visit again in the future. We saw red squirrels in the garden every day and also spotted a roe deer buck, crested tits, pheasant and grouse in the garden! I loved watching hares play in the surrounding farmland.
Our third visit to Balnabruaich which is just a few minutes drive from Kingussie, it is a very comfortable and well equipped holiday cottage situated in a very quiet location, adjacent to the Badenoch Way. It has good views looking over Insh Marshes (RSPB Reserve) to the Monadhliath Mountains. Plenty of wildlife can be seen from the cottage, Pine Marten if you are lucky. Several walks close by and many more in the forests nearby. The owners Judy and Jules are very friendly and helpful. We will be returning later in the year and have no hesitation in recommending the cottage for a perfect holiday.
3rd stay in location 1st stay at the cottage & it was great. Warm welcoming & attention to detail was obvious. Scenery from the main living room window was spectacular. The bird feeders in & around the garden were great & it was fun filling them & watching the red squirrels partridge & even a woodpecker come in to feed. Inshriach forest is right on the door step & the walks are, well, as long as you want them to be. No need to go anywhere but there are many things to do locally or even head into Aviemore if you fancy a bit of skiing or some outdoorwear shopping. Summer or winter its a great holiday with plenty to do & coukdnt find a more comfortable cottage to stay. Looking to get back as soon as. Would highly recommend.
Cottage is quietly located nearby Kingussie and it is very good equipped with really everything! It has superb views on the mountains, it was a shame that we had only booked for a week. There is a lot of wildlife (birds, deer, squirrels) around the cottage. We are definitely coming back!
Second visit to this holiday home and everything was perfect. Lovely location and as an added bonus it even snowed for us. A lovely Xmas tree was also there and it was like home from home. Thank you Judy. Perfect. Margaret and Peter Preece
Only a 10 minute drive from Kingussie but the wonderful feeling of peace & tranquillity. Unlike some rental properties, Balnabruaich is stocked with everything you could want...more kitchen utensils than I have at home! A spacious property with magnificent views of the hills with a welcoming homely feel about it. The owners Judy & Jules are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The website doesn't do the property justice but at least it isn't a "modern" website that contains photos of just a tap or a cushion!
