It had everything we needed and was very comfortable. It's a great spot as a base and peaceful to come back to. I would recommend it highly and hope to come back for a longer stay.

“Excellent facilities in a tranquil setting”
Reviewed 2 May 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed at the Byre for 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great care had been taken to provide a very comfortable, extremely well equipped and spotless holiday let. It was warm, comfortable and had lovely views towards the Moray Firth. It is an excellent location to go off exploring along the coast, shopping and eating out in Inverness and just a lovely quiet location to relax if that is what you are looking for. Barbara the owner was very friendly and made sure that we had everything that we needed. The log fire was a real bonus, although the storage heaters kept us cosy and warm throughout our stay. I would certainly recommend Balblair Holiday Cottages, and will be staying with Barbara again next time we are in the Inverness area. Thank you Barbara for making us so welcome x

“Fabulous cottage, fabulous location”
Reviewed 21 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We stayed in the Bothy Cottage for 3 nights and loved it, high standard, really enjoyed it. Spotless and the bed was so comfortable, peaceful and relaxing. Very welcoming and could have stayed longer. Cats were great, and lots of logs for the stove - even though the cottage was warm anyway, we loved having the open fire on ! Would highly recommend staying here.
