welcome to balblair
Boat of Garten is one of the best loved villages nestled amongst heather clad hills and native woodland in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. Located close to the mighty River Spey Balblair is the perfect place to stay and explore the magnificent scenery and the surrounding countryside, outdoor, leisure and cultural activities. On your door-step is a superb 18 hole golf course, the Strathspey Steam Railway and RSPB Reserve at Nethybridge.
Balblair is “the largest house using sleeper foundations known in Boat of Garten”. It’s a quirky cottage with a corrugated tin roof set in roughly 1/3 of an acre of enclosed mature gardens. This well presented cosy cottage offers deceptively spacious self-catering accommodation for up to 7 people with the master bedroom on the ground floor and via a steep staircase are two twin bedrooms and a single bedroom.These rooms may not be suitable for those with limited mobility and the height upstairs is limited due to the coombe ceilings of the cottage.
The village has two shops, a post office, Anderson’s Restaurant, Boat Hotel, Osprey Café and 1896 Gallery & Coffee Shop which are only a few minutes’ walk from the cottage. Private off road parking. Regret Strictly No Smoking.
