Balnabodach was immaculate; the house had everything we needed. The house was lovely and cosy, especially when the weather was so cold and windy. The kids loved the animals in the farmyard and there were great walks up the farm track to the loch. Situated in a lovely quiet area. A lovely house and great to be so close to Inverness.

We had a great time at the cottage. It was well positioned for local touring. We had a great welcome from the owner and the cottage was exactly as described /pictured on the website.

This is a cottage on a farm that has cows sheep. It's the most beautiful setting with the glorious mountains visible from every window and it's so tranquil. I would most definitely stay again. It's 9 miles from the city which is achievable in 15/20 mins by car. Lots of cyclists in the area too and I can see why!

We wanted a quiet, remote cottage, away from all fireworks (very nervous dog!). This was ideal and very well presented - very clean and comfy! The cottage is on the side of a hill with beautiful views up and down the glen. Great for dog walking too.

This was a truly magical setting; nature at its best. The welcome given was very sincere and warming. The house was well-ylaid out and well-furnished to a very high standard. I will certainly go back and would recommend this to anyone.

This is one of the best cottages that we have had the pleasure of staying in. The owner cannot do enough for you. There is nothing needed in the cottage, it is fully equipped and the location and surrounding wildlife are amazing; red deer, mountain hares and Yellowhammers to name but a few. Anyone and everyone will enjoy this holiday.

We adored this comfy and well-equipped cottage. The owner was so welcoming and helpful and the location was excellent for exploring the area. The peace and quiet of the area was just what we wanted from our holiday.

It is a very homely cottage in a quiet country setting! It was a good starting point for our daily touring.
