About Roslind MacNaughton

Your hosts have an excellent knowledge of the Scottish Highlands and Islands and previously lived in Fort Augustus (on Loch Ness), Inverness, Wester Ross, Orkney and the Isle of Skye. They both enjoy hill-walking and watching different types of wildlife found in the area.

Roslind MacNaughton purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Roslind MacNaughton chose Inverness

Balvaird Farm Cottages enjoy an attractive location which is rural but not remote, with many shops and visitor attractions within easy access.

The cottage is well furnished and all inclusive, offering a relaxing holiday for couples.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is located adjacent to a working farm and the views, particularly to the mountains of the north and west are impressive. The farming calendar - from lambs being born to the harvest can be viewed at first hand. Red kites, buzzards and other birds are also regularly seen from the cottages.

Perfect Cottage with great views

  • 5 out of 5
The cottage is beautifully presented, well-equipped and comfortable. Ros & Neil are perfect hosts and the little extras such as home-baked scones and bread were a delightful surprise. Highly recommended.

Marvellous, fantastic - grossartig

  • 5 out of 5
It was everything we had dreamt of. A nice cottage, friendly hosts (including the Irish setter), a smashing view, sheep in front of the house, red kites fighting against crows - Balvaird is ideally situated for day excursions, Ros and Neil helpful with advice, we could ad a list of adjectives in the superlative.
Und nun für deutsche Interessenten:
Das Haus ist so, wie es in der Beschreibung steht, praktisch und gemütlich eingerichtet, es gibt nichts, aber auch gar nichts Negatives zu sagen - wir haben die Zeit dort genossen.

We spent a wonderful relaxed week at Balvaird and didn't want to leave. The cottage is nicely furnished with everything you would need, it's a home from home. Neil & Ros are great hosts and deliver home made scones which are an added extra, they go the extra mile and this makes for a wonderful holiday, they have a wealth of knowledge of the local area which they are happy to share. The most relaxing holiday we have had in a long time.
