We stayed in the Grain Store. Top quality self catering accommodation. Modern, clean, with everything you need. Warm and toasty underfloor heating. The log burner isn't really needed. A lovely wet room for a bathroom. Friendly owners on hand if you need them. And friendly chickens who say hello every morning if you given them some chicken friendly scraps.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Balneden is the ideal location for a self-catering holiday in the Scottish Highlands. Converted in 2010 Balneden Steading offers 3 newly-renovated cottages to rent - The Mill (sleeps 4+1), The Grain Store (sleeps 4+1), and The Cattle Shed (sleeps 2). The Cottages can be booked individually or in combination to meet your party's needs. We also offer short breaks (minimum 2 night stay). Perfectly located at the start of the Whisky and Castle Trail, one mile from the A939 Highland Tourist Route between Grantown-on-Spey and Tomintoul, we are situated in the stunning Glenlivet Estate, within the Cairngorms National Park. We are just 30 minutes drive away from activity-filled Aviemore, yet also just 45 minutes drive from the wildlife of the Moray Firth. The breathtaking panoramic views from Balneden (see above) are stunning and make Balneden the perfect place to unwind and enjoy Highland life. The cottages themselves are renovated and furnished to a very high standard, we hope to have thought of everything to make your stay in The Highlands as magical as possible. ... more less
