Stunning contemporary cottage with breathtaking views, beautifully furnished and with a superb garden and hot tub, located just outside Grantown-on-Spey and the perfect Highland retreat for a large family or group of friends.

Set in rural Speyside on a working farm, this superb property is the ideal retreat for a bunch of friends looking to catch up and indulge in style. Located less than 1.5 miles from the A95, you’ve got great access to explore the Highlands, Cairngorms and Moray. With four bedrooms and two sofa beds, a snug area that can be opened out into the main open-plan living area and a large enclosed garden, there is ample room for up to 11 guests and two dogs to find their favourite spot to relax in. Enjoy stunning views while you relax in the hot tub, or head out to Grantown-on-Spey, just 3 miles away, where a pub and restaurant as well as cafes will be on hand to refuel you after a long day.

Inside, a bright and airy contemporary style blended with traditional furnishings makes this farmhouse a unique a delightful place to stay. The open plan living area is the hub of the house, offering superb countryside views from one end and a stylish kitchen with everything you need to cook up a storm at the other. The snug area can be kept separate by folding partition doors for a little quiet time away from it all; cosy up in front of the wood burner with a book and a delicious glass of wine. Enjoy sociable meals at the dining table, with beautiful views wherever you sit, and maybe stay at the table after dinner to challenge fellow guests to a board game. Or if you prefer al fresco meals, sizzle up a BBQ out in the garden for everyone to enjoy. Come bedtime, whichever bedroom you choose will offer you a tranquil night’s sleep; tasteful furnishings with lots of light in the day make any of these rooms a pleasure to spend time in.

Location was great for trips into Aviemore and Grantown on Spey. The cottage itself was really spacious inside and had everything you need. We would certainly return to stay here again.

Had a fantastic Christmas at Ballinluig Croft with family. The house is fantastic - much bigger in reality than the pictures show. The quality of everything is superb - floors, windows, internal fittings etc. The location is great - 5 minutes from Grantown on Spey which is a lovely town with all the facilities you could need. In a beautiful spot wiRead moreth stunning views out of every window and from the hot tub. In fact I would have booked it again for next year had the price not gone up by 46%! Hide

Ballinluig was more than we could have wished for. Every little detail has been thought about. We wanted for nothing. Despite poor weather during our stay we were warm and cosy. We found somewhere different to eat out every evening all within a half an hour drive, in particular The Clock house at Tomintoul and Muckrach Country House Hotel in DulnaiRead moren Bridge all very good value for money. Ballinluig provides peace and amazing views with wildlife on the doorstep, there was a friendly Hare in the garden with Pheasants and Quails too. We would definitely like to return and wouldn't hesitate recommending this beautiful Croft for a relaxing Scottish holiday. Hide

The cottage was amazing so peaceful and tranquil ! It was till on a working farm which made it more special as the owner allowed the kids to see the baby lambs. Close enough to all amenities and aviemore. Would certainly stay here again and have recommended to friends.
