“Top class B&B.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

Stayed here one night whilst walking the Speyside Way.
The owner, Trish, was wonderful. She helped out with some transport problems we had and was the ideal hostess. There was a welcoming pot of tea with biscuits, always a bonus when walking. We were lucky to have the space of the family room,all very comfy.
Breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit, home baked bread etc all served in a room overlooking the beautiful countryside.Would happily have stayed longer.

We were attending Motormania at near by Grantown on spey and chose to stay here as it was close by, on arrival the owner actually informed us that we were staying across the street and had a whole house to ourselves!! It was great as we were able to park the car in the driveway and had loads of room.
We had coffee and home made scones in Balciuin itself and had a lovely cooked breakfast there in the morning, the owner was friendly and helpful and we hope to return for longer next time.
We felt for £65 it was well worth it.

We were in Nethy Bridge for a highland wedding and stayed at Balciuin for 5 nights. Trish is a lovely and welcoming host. Her 3 rooms, all with ensuite washrooms, were clean and well appointed, with all the comforts of home. Free secured wifi. Lots of parking. We slept very well in this quiet B&B. The bright large breakfast room was laid out daily with fresh fruit salad, cereal, and toast with jams - Trish will also cater to hot breakfast requests, some notice is requested.

The centre of Nethy Bridge is a 10 minute walk, which is where the church, social hall, Spar convenience store, and hotel pub are located. The walking path along the forested River Nethy is perfect for a romantic outing or simply to get back and forth to the town centre. A rental car is definitely an asset in this area to see the beautiful surrounding countryside, Cairngorm Mountains, and do some whiskey tastings along the whiskey trail.

Pros :

Pleasant Hostess , Trish
Good, clean rooms
En-suite bathrooms good quality
clean, comfortable beds

Our hostess Trish, was pleasant and non-intrusive, she bakes real good bread and her pineapple-mint jelly is an absolute must-try. She also pointed us towards some local must-trys which we LOVED.

If you are driving in the cairngorms, do not miss this little nursery in Inschraich by feshiebridge - This norwegian woman has a plant nursery and a tea room that serves the BEST cakes, you can also eat it while watching the birds and squirrels.. we had a great time !

We stayed for one night before heading off up into the hills. Trish made us very welcome and we really appreciated the tea and cake on arrival. Our room was large and comfortable. Breakfast was a treat but we didn't really have time to linger so will have to go back again to sample everything properly!

Our family of four stayed for one night and we were very comfortable. Spacious rooms with many little extras supplied. Breakfast offered a great variety and our host was most helpful.
