Balgowan Cottage attractions

Superb Holiday Cottage in the Cairngorms National Park

Balgowan House is a spacious, detached house built in 2008, in the beautiful rural setting of Balgowan, 7 miles from Newtonmore in the Cairngorms National Park. It sleeps up to 10 people. All rooms have been decorated and furnished to a high standard. The house has spectacular views across the Spey valley towards the Monodhliath mountains, particularly from the large hexagonal sun room. We regret no smoking, but we are happy to accept well behaved pets.  Free Wifi/internet access available.

The area was recently featured in the "Monarch of the Glen" series and gained many accolades for its stunning scenery. It is ideal for forest walks, climbing, horse riding, cycling and fishing. A little further afield are numerous castles, gardens and picturesque lochs, whilst for the more active holiday there is canoeing, climbing and sailing  at Aviemore. In the winter, there is skiing in both the Cairngorms and the Nevis mountains, which are 30 and 45 minutes away respectively.
