Grieve’s Cottage

Centrally positioned at the heart of the estate and close to Balnagown Castle itself, Grieve’s Cottage is a beautifully restored family home, full of character and period detail.
  • Sleeps 6 with 2 double bedrooms and 1 twin bedroom
  • Secluded location within the private grounds of Balnagown
  • Adjacent to the sports hall
  • Free use of bicycles, sports hall, fishing and archery
  • 36 miles from Inverness Airport
  • Dogs are not allowed within the property, although heated kennels are provided

The accommodation at Grieve’s Cottage includes a spacious lounge with inglenook fireplace which provides an ideal setting to get together at the end of a long and active day spent exploring the estate. There is a large, well-equipped kitchen allowing informal meals to be taken family-style around the refectory table, or a separate, more formal, dining room. French doors open out from the kitchen into a delightful enclosed garden, providing a beautiful setting for casual dining on warmer days.

Grieve’s Cottage sleeps up to six guests and the sumptuous master suite with bedroom, dressing area and bathroom provides a spacious sanctuary. A further double bedroom with en-suite bathroom, and twin bedroom with family bathroom, are all tastefully decorated with traditional fabrics and fine antiques creating a real sense of comfort, and a relaxing ambience in which to fully escape the pace of modern living.

However, for those who do need to stay in touch with the outside world, broadband and satellite television are available. Bedrooms benefit from the finest duvets, pillows, cashmere blankets and Egyptian cotton linens, whilst bathrooms feature super-luxe, heavyweight towels and bespoke toiletries. Dogs are not allowed within the property, but heated kennels are closely located behind the cottage.

We have just returned home following a wonderful week at Grieves Cottage, and I wanted to drop you a line to thank all the team at Balnagown for making it such a memorable experience.

We learnt of the Balnagown Estate having done a search for luxury accommodation in the Highlands, and whilst the website read well, our actual stay and first-hand experience of what was on offer far exceeded our expectations. The attention to detail, quality of the property and furnishings along with the range of on-site activities was truly impressive, and we have already recommended the experience to two other friends.

Our only two regrets were having to return home on Sunday, and the fact that the weather was so good that we could not justify lighting the magnificent fire in the cottage!!

We are now busy looking at diaries to see when we can escape again to the peace, tranquility and luxury that Balnagown offers. Please also add us to your mailing list and keep us advised of any special offers which you may have.

Thank you again for a wonderful stay, and hope to visit you again soon.

We had a fantastic weekend in no small measure to the high standard of the property and also the cleanliness of the property. Also the attention to detail in the property was first class. The facilities available were also excellent from the bikes, the gym facilities, table tennis, badminton, the fishing and clay pigeon shooting we managed to squeeze them all in. I would also like to thank Paul who was very helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. We will definitely come back.

We arrived in a wonderful cottage with the lights already put on to make us feel home. We were staying there with our two boys (34 , 36 and the girlfriend of the eldest one) and we enjoyed it. Everything you possibly should need, was in the house available. The information in the guide about outside dining possibilities was also very convenient. In one word our stay was PERFECT!!!
