Stedet
Ideal for family Staycations, with lots of room to spread out and relax indoors and out in the safe garden. Nearest neighbours are 300 metres away. Equipped for Working From Home!

We have been AirBnB hosts for several years, with Superhost status, in Scotland and in London, and have now added this family home as a new separate listing. You can also check out our other two listings called: "Your Central London Home Base" and "Lovely Scottish Highland Cottage by its own river" - both are 5-star-rated listings, with over 150 reviews.

Please note - through till the end of 2020, we have blocked the house for at least 24 hours between reservations to give us time to clean and disinfect thoroughly as fully as possible between guest parties. Contactless self-check-in is also standard.

For people needing/wanting to Work From Home, there is good fibre-optic WiFi; a printer/fax/scanner/copier; dedicated spaces with desks; ergonomic desk chair.

The cottage stands in its own large garden, with open fields in front and a small wood and lake behind, about 1 km from Evanton village. It has stunning views in front down over the Cromarty Firth, and behind up to Fyrish Hill with its famous monument. Deer, stoats, pheasants, woodpeckers are among regular visitors in the garden (as you can see from the photos of deer taken on 30 June 2020). The Black Rock Gorge, filmed in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, is just a 10 minute walk.

Sleeping arrangements: The cottage is ideally suited for large family groups, and sleeps up to 10 guests. It has two large bedrooms on the ground floor (one with a superking-size bed, one with two single beds that can be moved together), a full bathroom with separate shower and bath, and a second bathroom with large shower. Upstairs there are two further bedrooms with king-size beds, a bathroom with bath and toilet, and a TV room area with a double sofa bed. All bed linen and towels are provided.

The large kitchen and dining area is fully equipped for 10 guests, with crockery, cutlery, dishwasher, tea and coffee, etc. Off the kitchen is a laundry room with washing machine and separate clothes dryer. The main kitchen window looks onto the back garden, where you can often watch deer and pheasants while eating your breakfast

The large sitting room runs the whole length of the cottage, with a beautiful old stone open fireplace at one end. A glass door leads out onto the front lawn, where you can enjoy the long summer evenings.

The cottage has all the amenities you would expect: washing machine, clothes dryer, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, TV, DVD, fibre internet & WiFi, kitchen equipment (espresso machine, filter coffee machine, Kenwood blender, dishwasher etc.)

Occasional Little Visitors – Please note and excuse:
Balavoulin is a rural cottage and surrounded by beautiful flower gardens so on occasion, and despite our best efforts, a stray bug, spider, or other nature-loving creature may wander inside, especially if a door is left open.

Gjestetilgang
Guests have full access to all the interior of the cottage and full use of the garden. They are also free to roam the many footpaths and field tracks in the area.

Andre ting det er verdt å merke seg
Please Note: Through till the end of 2020, we have blocked the house for minimum 24 hours between reservations to give us time to clean thoroughly between guest parties.

Ideal for Staycations and equipped for Working From Home!

Please note that we cannot accept pets because of allergies and cannot make exceptions - sorry!

Beliggenhet

Evanton, Skottland, Storbritannia

The cottage is just outside the village of Evanton, in Ross-shire, and is 17 miles drive (30 minutes according to Google Maps) from the centre of Inverness. It is a good jumping-off point for visiting the Highlands:

- Grantown on Spey - heart of the Speyside whisky trail - is 1 hour;
- Culloden Battlefield is 35 minutes;
- Kyle of Lochalsh (for visting Skye, is 1 hr 45 mins);
- Loch Ness starts at Inverness and runs south to Fort Augustus, 1 hr 15 mins away;
- Ullapool and the West Coast is 1 hr 15 mins;
- Dunrobin Castle is 50m mins away on the East Coast route going North.
- John o'Groats, the Northern tip of Great Britain is 2 hrs 20 mins, up the East Coast road.

If golf is your thing then Castle Stuart championship course is 35 mins away (green fees £225/round) while the much more relaxed Alness village course is 10 minutes away and only £25/round.

Situated on the famous North Coast 500 route, we are ideally placed as a base to explore the Highlands. Just 25 kilometres north of Inverness and the amenities of the city, but the pleasure of the country, with easy access to Loch Ness itself.

Note that the cottage itself is a 25 minute walk from shops in the centre of Evanton village - it is not really practical to stay here without your own vehicle.

A beautiful road leads off to the West Coast and the Isle of Skye. Or head up the East Coast right to the tip of Great Britain.

Evanton also has some of its own features:

•Fyrish Monument. This is the stone ruin you can see on top of the nearest hill. It represents the gates of Negapatam in India and was built in 1782 by General Sir Hector Munro, a local landowner, in order to provide employment for local people. There is a path up to the monument on the other side of the hill.

•The Black Rock Gorge, just 1/2 km further up the Glenglass Road, is a very deep and narrow natural river gorge. It is a rather spooky place and was used for filming one of the scenes in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

•Ben Wyvis is a small mountain (big for Scotland) between Evanton and Dingwall to the north. It is a Nature Reserve and can be walked. Despite only being 1000 metres high, some parts of the mountain have snow all year round.

There are also many great places to walk just in the nearby countryside and guests will find links to trails we and others have loaded onto Wikiloc in the house manual.

We have been letting out properties on AirBnb since 2012 and have been Superhosts for years in Scotland and in London. We have now added this family home as a new separate listing, but you can check out the reviews for our other two called: "Your Central London Home Base" and "Lovely Scottish Highland Cottage by its own river" - both are 5-star-rated listings, with over 150 reviews. This is now a new listing for another family property that we have renovated following the departure of a family friend tenant, joining the two others that have been in our family for generations. These are our personal homes, and we love welcoming leisure and business travellers in each location, when we ourselves are away. The reviews will show you that we really do want to offer you a homelike experience in a place with nice family furniture, our own books and belongings - not an impersonal letting property. Our whole family have been described as global nomads, having lived and travelled extensively around the world. We have long experience of and affection for emerging economies, in which we have lived, studied, invested and done business. Although it may sound a bit corny, the notion of lifelong learning is strong for us all - probably the closest thing to a motto, along with a strong focus on values and human dignity. We welcome all people here, regardless of gender, race, sexuality, dis/ability, etc.

Under oppholdet ditt
We may not be in Scotland when you are staying and therefore may not have the pleasure of meeting you. Contactless self-check-in is standard, but our caretaker will be available to help with any questions you may have about the cottage and the local area. There is more information about the local area in the cottage manual, and there is a good selection of guidebooks on visiting Scotland, its history and culture in the cottage.
