Balnacraig has been equipped and furnished to a high standard to ensure as comfortable and relaxing holiday as possible.\nSet in the small hamlet of Craigton and a short distance from the seaside village of North Kessock Balnacraig makes the perfect base for exploring the beautiful part of the northern Highlands. Only 3 miles from Inverness visitors will find a wealth of historic and cultural attractions as well as a very good selection of shops restaurants bars and cafés. Culloden Battlefield Fort George Cawdor Castle and Loch Ness are just a few of the many interesting places to visit. Take a boat trip on the waters of the Moray coast and hopefully catch sight of the blue nose dolphins which the area is renowned for.\nFor the more energetic there is hill walking and mountain biking through the woodland in the forest trails behind Balnacraig. A large variety of water sports fishing boat trips and numerous golf courses are just some of the many activities available within easy driving distance. The Cairngorms National Park and Aviemore which is set in the heart of the park is a very popular destination for winter sports and is just over 40 minutes’ drive away. Take a trip along the Moray Malt Whisky Trail or a day out to the lovely Isle of Skye or the Orkney Islands available Jun-Aug which are both well worth visiting - there is so much to see and do for all ages. For the less energetic sit back and relax whether it be in the hot tub or in the living area and watch the ever changing views from this lovely property. Many happy memories will be made in this beautiful and unspoilt destination. Beach 1 mile. Shop pub and restaurant 1 mile. " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/141/840/1419181.jpg UK5668

    A beautifully positioned house with amazing views. fully equipped kitchen, comfy beds and lovely clean bathrooms, all our needs were catered for. The very comfy,squashy seats in the lounge were of a cream palette,which for the younger members of our family were challenging, small sticky fingers etc. Gill was able to help us with this and put our minds at rest as everything was washable. Thank you Gill . Your home made a perfect base for our family New Year.

    Balnacraig was so beautiful inside and out. It was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The hot tub with the beautiful views was a winner with us all. Everything was spotlessly clean and luxurious, we were more than happy. Gill was so friendly and helpful and made sure we knew all we needed to know about the house. The kids were impressed with the WIFI connection!! We really hope to return in the future.

    Excellent house to stay. Would highly recommend. Was immaculatly clean. Hot tub lovely with beautiful views. Heating not working on our arrival but Gil owner promptly got a tradesman to fix this on a Sunday evening. Couldn't ask for more. Very steep drive up to house. Would defiently return in the future.

    There is absolutely nothing to fault about this wonderful self catering property. I rented Balnacraig for my husband's 50th birthday weekend and it did not disappoint. Not one person in our party of 8 could find a single thing to complain about and we have travelled! Gill, all your hard work is not unnoticed, you have gone to the next level when it comes to comfort, the beds, bedding and facilities - fabulous. We have honestly stayed in 5* hotels and not had even close to the same level of quality, not to mention the bathrobes, slippers and wonderful toiletries provided. You have seriously spoiled us for booking anywhere else. Balnacraig is WONDERFUL and we would have no hesitation recommending it to anyone and hopefully returning again.
