    “A gorgeous house in a stunning location - cant wait to go back!”

    Balvaig is a very special property. We spent so much of our week there just sitting watching the birds and the ever changing colours and light over the tummel valley. The views are amazing and its just so peaceful and relaxing. Wow is the only word I can use to describe the house with so much light and space, The lounge is so comfy with lots of throws and cushions and those huge windows to watch the views.The house is lovely and warm but on one chilly evening we lit the log burner and the heat ...

    Balvaig is a very special property. We spent so much of our week there just sitting watching the birds and the ever changing colours and light over the tummel valley. The views are amazing and its just so peaceful and relaxing. Wow is the only word I can use to describe the house with so much light and space, The lounge is so comfy with lots of throws and cushions and those huge windows to watch the views.The house is lovely and warm but on one chilly evening we lit the log burner and the heat it threw out was amazing. The kitchen is bright and spacious and so well equipped and the huge dining table is something else. It was on that dining table we found a basket of welcoming treats - thanks so much. The bedrooms are all bright and airy and the beds so comfy with lovely crisp white linen and a view from every window, Two great bathrooms one with a walk in shower and one with a shower over the bath. Lots of hot water and good water pressure with lovely hair and body wash provided. From one bathroom there is a great view over the garden and what a garden it is. An orchard with apples. plums and pears and a hammock. Never expected to be lazing in a hammock surrounded by bees and butterflies and birds - bliss.As well as the wildlife areas of the garden a more formal area has a table and chairs and most mornings thats where we ate breakfast. We found it hard to tear ourselves away from Balvaig but we did manage a local walk to black spout falls and the edradour distillery (hope its open next time we visit) and we also visited the House of Bruar, Highland Safaris at Aberfeldy, Kenmore and the Birnam Oak. A really great day was spent at the Highland Safari Park (about 40 miles north) and saw some amazing animals. Balvaig is in a great location with so much to do and see close by but the house itself is just gorgeous and its so easy to spend time just being there. Absolutely loved it and got quite tearful when we were leaving. The owner was very accessible and couldnt have been more helpful. We will definitely return and would definitely recommend.

The property

Resting in the heart of Scotland, tucked on the outskirts of vibrant Pitlochry, is this luxurious, architect designed, and superbly appointed, detached eco-property, called “Balvaig”.

The property has been specifically designed around the breathtaking views of the Tummel Valley.

The natural colour palette and clean lines give an instant warm, peaceful and welcoming atmosphere.

The location of the property means it is ideally placed for either a relaxing trip away in the highlands or an action-packed adventure, with the local area boasting an abundance of rolling mountain peaks, rivers and lakes for a fabulous range of outdoor activities, as well as superb restaurants, pubs, distilleries (all within walking distance), something to suit all tastes.

The all ground floor accommodation is kitted out to a very high standard, attracting discerning guests looking for something special.

The interior décor is contemporary, comfortable and cosy with designer coffee tables, sideboards and dining furniture that give a sense of class.

There is a Sonos sound system in the impressive double height vaulted living area and in the kitchen, you’ll find everything you’ll need (including range cooker and coffee maker).

There is underfloor heating throughout, provided by an eco-friendly ground source heat pump.

However, what could be more romantic than cuddling up in front of the wood burning stove on a cold winter’s evening?

In the bedrooms the luxurious theme continues with top of the range crisp white Italian bed linen, cosy bath robes, indulgent toiletries and soft fluffy towels, provided in each of the four elegantly-presented bedrooms (two king-size, one each double and single, and a snug with a double sofa bed for an extra person to sleep if needed).

The open-plan living space boasts patio doors, allowing for alfresco dining which seamlessly blends the beautiful outside surroundings with the inside.

The property is not overlooked, and the sense of privacy, peace and light is overwhelming.

If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful hideaway, head into Pitlochry where you will be spoilt for choice by the eateries that await you, including cafés, pubs, restaurants and takeaways, offering something for all tastes and budgets.

Pitlochry contains a good range of local amenities including a supermarket, bank, independent shops and train station, and is also home to the famous Pitlochry festival theatre.

Within easy walking distance (0.5 mile) of the property is the historic village of Moulin with its heritage centre and popular Moulin Hotel Bar, welcoming visitors and locals alike for pub meals and locally brewed ales.

If you fancy a decent walk you’ll find a number of paths within the local area which allow you to stride out from the doorstep, including; Loch Faskally, Ben y Vrackie, and Black Spout to name but a few, with many more good walks only a short drive away.

If you fancy a walk with a different purpose, just stroll along the lane to the Edradour Distillery and Visitor Centre; less than a mile away and you’ll be glad you didn’t drive so you can indulge in a whisky tasting or two before returning home.

If you are bringing your bike along, the Pitlochry area is nationally recognised as one of the UK's top locations for road biking and mountain biking, each offering panoramic views and diverse wildlife to enjoy along the way.

For those feeling slightly more adventurous, there are plenty of extreme sports of the menu including White Water Rafting on the River Tay and Canyoning in the Falls of Bruar.

Other excellent attractions within the local area include; fishing, many excellent golf courses, historic castles, the Pitlochry Dam Visitor Centre, the Enchanted Forest (October) and a variety of wonderful gardens to visit.

Balvaig is a wonderful and luxurious retreat in which to base yourself for exploring the delights of this beautiful part of Scotland.
