All of the previous rave revues are totally true, we stayed at The Mill and loved every minute.The accomodation is clean and bright and fitted with every convenience. Richard and Anita are great hosts and provided every assistance cheerfully.
The Glenlivet Estate has well marked routes for exploring this part of the Cairngorms and the location is good for exploring further afield.
We have no hesitation in recommending Balneden Steading as first class.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Balneden Steading is the ideal location for a self-catering holiday in the Scottish Highlands. Converted in 2010, this former historic steading offers 3 newly-renovated cottages to rent - The Mill (sleeps 4+1), The Grain Store (sleeps 4+1), and The Cattle Shed (sleeps 2). The Cottages can be booked individually or in combination to meet your party's needs. We also offer short breaks (minimum 3 night stay). Perfectly located at the start of the Whisky and Castle Trail, one mile from the A939 Highland Tourist Route between Grantown-on-Spey and Tomintoul, we are situated in the stunning Glenlivet Estate, within the Cairngorms National Park. We are just 30 minutes drive away from activity-filled Aviemore, yet also just 45 minutes drive from the wildlife of the Moray Firth. The breathtaking panoramic views from Balneden make it the perfect place to unwind and enjoy Highland life. We hope to have thought of everything to make your stay in The Highlands as relaxing and magical as possible. ... more less
