"Superbly comfortable tranquility"

Highly recommended. Very comfortable, well equipped and quiet. Handy location and only a few minutes from the airport..

Do have in mind that access to the bedroom is via a spiral staircase. We did not find this a problem.

It feels great to be highly recommended! We are so pleased that you enjoyed the Bothy cottage and the location of Balblair Cottages. Thank you for your review and for booking with us. Kind regards, Barbara

There was a warm and friendly welcome from the Strachan family. The accommodation was over and above our expectations. The property is spotless, comfortable and suited our needs.
There is an enclosed outside area which was great for our dog
Great location short commutes to all local attractions
We will definitely be returning to Balblair Cottages in the near future.
