Balorrin has a great location - a stone’s throw from the Orrin river and next to the open moorland that stretches across Scotland to the west. At the same time it is only five minutes by car from shops in Muir of Ord and 20 minutes from Inverness. Aultgowrie is the name of the hamlet, which only has half a dozen houses.
Built some 30 years ago to a Swedish design Balorrin has four bedrooms and a spacious kitchen/living area which opens onto the patio looking west. The house has been completely renovated (Spring 2010) with new central heating, new kitchen, new ensuite master bedroom, new wooden flooring, etc. Facilities include TV/...DVD, dishwasher, and washer/dryer.
A spacious garden, enclosed on two sides by drystone walls, surrounds the house at the front and back and there is private parking for two cars. The double garage has become a play space with ping pong table and mountain bikes.
Other attractions include Ord Distillery (only a mile away), Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness, the Culloden Battlefield, Cawdor Castle, Dunrobbin Castle, and Glen Strathfarrar - National Nature Reserve. Ullapool, Gairloch and the West are only an hour’s drive. The same is true of Aviemore and the Cairngorm National Park. Balorrin is an ideal base for your holiday.
Other Black Isle self catering holiday homes, cottages, apartments and log cabins.
Additional amenities include: black isle, elderly accessible, number of bath/shower rooms: 2, inverness, house, dogs welcome, number of bedrooms: 3, cyclists welcome.

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The table tennis was great for the kids when it rained, and the beautiful walks right on the doorstep were perfect for adventure.
The house was clean, well equipped and spacious, and the service was fantastic. We will come here again.
Brilliant place to stay - will be going back soon.
