We have family living all over the country so for Christmas this year we thought, rather than invade someones house for a a day we would all go somewhere neutral. Having done something similar the year before just after Christmas we decided to go for it again.
Balgowan House was Beautiful. The house is well equipped with everything we needed (including Cooking the biggest turkey i've ever seen!) All the rooms were spacious beautifully cleaned and maintained. This was great because it meant nobody drew the short straw because there wasn't one! All the linen, the bathrooms, the towels, the equipment all just what we needed! we shifted some chairs around in the living room for christmas morning and had christmas dinner in the sun room surrounded by the Cairngorms!
I could go on and on about the house but the whole area is just great. We went in the winter so obviously there was less to do but you can see that during the summer there would be LOADS to do all around. I really enjoyed the wildlife park but I'm a nature freak so I would. In my mind it's worth it just for the tigers and Walker the Polar Bear!
I suppose if I absolutely HAD to criticise anything it was the TV facilities which were adequate but a little bit dated. Also there was no WiFi which is a bit of a shock to the system but in a funny sort of way its's nice to be disconnected for a while! They would be my only criticisms and to be honest theres so much to do other than watch TV and post the odd tweet.
Overall a great place to stay with friends and family and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who has a large group holiday in mind for a reasonable price.
