Getting around

A car is best as the location is rural, however there are taxi numbers available in The Lodge which can be booked in advanced or I can provide before your stay. Aviemore and Kingussie are both approximately 10 miles from the Lodge and both have main train stations with regular trains.

Interaction with guest

I will unfortunately not be able to meet you as I do not live nearby. However I have very capable housekeepers who are responsible for The Lodge and guests. Just before your stay I will email you the housekeepers name and mobile number so that you can contact her to meet you if you would prefer this or if you have any problems or general questions you would like answered. I will also send you the key box number so that you can access the key for the front door on your arrival.

“A fab relaxing weekend.”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2018

We visited balnacraig lodge for our 10 year reunion for a chilled, child free weekend. The lodge was beautiful in a picturesque location, surrounded by nature. The facilities were fantastic and are child friendly, very suitable for families, friends, couples etc. There are also lots of activities in the area. We really enjoyed our stay and plan to return.

“Fantastic weekend at Balnacraig”

Reviewed 11 May 2017

The house is easy to find on the way to Aviemore and its location is great, the house is along a forest and has a fantastic view on greeneries and the Insh Lake. We could drive very easily in the Highlands The house in itself is really amazing, great decoration, amenities and equipment - including in the kitchen -, nothing was missing for a weekend in the Highlands. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very comfortable. The interiors look even better than on the pictures, we were all very positively surprised !! We really enjoyed the outdoor spa in the cold weather. Thanks for proposing such a quality place!

“What a great plce to have a break , everything you expect you get, form the property to the location, simply stunning”

Reviewed 3 Feb 2014

I would highly recommend Balnacraig Lodge , great location , if you want to enjoy luxurious surroundings and a great location. The views from the hot tub are beautiful , the house has the space to accommodate the largest of families , without living on top of each other and the living room is a great place for everyone to be together and discuss what they did that day, all within 20 minutes of the Cairngorms.
