We more than enjoyed our week at Balbeag! What a delightful property, brimming with every convenience to make our holiday so relaxing. It exceeded our expectations; the build quality, external and internal decor, the cleanliness, layout, overall presentation, facilities, comfort, seclusion and location. In a word….fantastic! Thank you for all that you did to make our stay so enjoyable. It is appreciated!

We had a great time, the house was perfect and we will return at a later date.  To me the area is the loveliest part of Scotland and one that I have returned to every year for 45.  My grandchildren enjoyed themselves, the highlight for the 8 year old was going on the zip line on Alvie Estate with her dad!
