About Norrie Flowers

Eleanor and I love the Scottish Highlands with its great outdoors literally on the doorstep. Ballindalloch is a wonderful location peppered with fantastic walks, stunning scenery and castles galore. There really is something here for everyone.

Step out of the lodge and you are surrounded by wildlife and the great outdoors, whether you walk or take the car you constantly surrounded by unspoiled nature. Just 2 miles away is the Croft Inn where all are welcome to enjoy the good food and drink. Alternatively relax in the lodge looking out of the big patio doors at some of the wild deer and other wildlife that appear in the garden as if by magic.

The property is about half a mile off the main road along a well maintained forestry road sitting at the top of a hill with panoramic views.

Why Norrie Flowers chose Moray

We bought the lodge as a `getaway from it all` and we absolutely love it, as such we make sure that it is kept in prime condition and spotlessly clean every time we rent it out. The location is remote but well connected where wildlife abounds alongside rich bird life.

Access to the lodge is off the main road via a well maintained forestry road. The lodge itself nestles on farmland at the top of a hill overlooking magnificent mountain scenery.

The lodge is bang in the centre of the world renown `Whisky Trail` with many of the distilleries open to the public and well worth visiting.

What makes this cabin unique

Our lodge is just a hour drive from Inverness, 45 minutes to Aviemore, 45 minutes to historic Balmoral and Crathie, 30 minutes to the lovely town of Grantown on Spey and just 15 minutes to Dufftown and Tomintoul.

During the winter it is a very short 20 minutes to the popular Lecht sky slopes.

Castles abound so you can immerse yourself in the romance and history of the area or just switch off and enjoy the silence interrupted only by the sounds of nature.

There is fishing, walking, golf and so much more on offer, or you can simply sit back and relax in the comfort of the lodge enjoying the quiet seclusion. The choice of course is yours so whether you visit in the Spring, the Summer, the Autumn or the Winter your experience will be unique and we know you will want to come back.

PLEASE NOTE:-

You can if you wish book directly with us the owners (Norrie and Eleanor) this way it will save you the Owners Direct/Home and Away booking fee, if so please feel free to contact us on our telephone number listed, if not then please continue to book as per the instructions on the website, either way, if available, our highland getaway will be yours to enjoy.

a comfortable lodge with beautifull views

A welcoming, cosy and well equipped, comfortable lodge! It was ideally situated for lovely walks and exploring the Scottish Highlands as well as some spots at the coast. Especially we enjoyed the beautiful open views to the surroundings....and the nearby "Croft Inn".

Thank you for some wonderful days!

Beautiful modern Lodge, in a lovely location, for our winters break in a countryside location.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous, very well equipped Lodge with all the mod cons you need in the kitchen area. Comfortable beds, choice of shower or bath, and fantastic heating that delt well the the variety of weather conditions we experienced, we were always very warm and cosy. Beautiful views to the surounding countryside, peace and quiet, beautiful black skies with brilliant stars, glittering snow. We have done plenty of mountain bike rides at Glenlivit, The Moray coastal trail, and also cycling in the lovely Roseisle Forest, and on the fabulous beach with our dogs. Elgin is a lovely place, the distilleries are worth a visit, (not all open) plus the whisky castle with the biggest choice we have ever seen, plus generous tasting. The lodge was very clean and tidy on our arrival, we were given good instructions on finding our way to the lodge, our only real worry was deep snow one evening when returning to the lodge, we just about made it back up the track, we usually carry snow chains when on winter holiday in scotland, but we had left them at home, but all roads are kept clear, and there is space to park at the bottom of the drive to then walk up if snow was very deep. Only real drawback was no phone signal. Would definitely visit this part of scotland again, and would have no hesitation at staying in this comfortable Lodge again. Norrie Flowers (owner) was very helpful with our first enquiry about the lodge and all booking details ect.

"A Wonderful Weeks Adventure"

  • 5 of 5

We began with a fantastic drive in superb weather through the magnificent Scottish mountains, in awe of the views that none of us had experienced before having not ventured further north than Edinburgh, then on arrival the location of the lodge itself with its open views could not have been better. Even when we turned off the main road making our last half mile to the lodge, up the access road between the trees, we were treated to the sight of several deer with their young bouncing across in front of us – what a start to a wonderful week.

The local wildlife is plentiful. We were lucky enough to see not one but two eagles, and there was even a buzzard that mesmorised us as she continued to hover and drop hunting in the fields around us - don`t worry about binoculars either because they are there in the lodge too. Then the views, put simply they are spectacular!

Our days were full too, we visited numerous distilleries, Loch Ness, Fort George(twice), Culloden, Inverness Castle and city, Castle Urquhart, so many waterfalls, I could go on and on.

The lodge itself is spotlessly clean, welcoming and cosy, so well equipped that you will not need to take anything with you it was exactly as described with the photos giving an accurate representation of how lovely it is. I have rated it with five stars because there were only five available, it was heaven with us thoroughly enjoying our stay and we cannot recommend it highly enough.

Thank you.

Great Location - Lovely Property

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic lodge nestled in a wonderful location. Blissfully quiet it was perfect for us as we needed a break from our hectic lives and Oh Boy we found it here - so peaceful and quiet with the wonderful bonus of stunning scenery all around. Even though it was December we were lucky with the weather and able to enjoy many beautiful long walks into the hills while hardly ever seeing another soul. The lodge sits in a great location which allowed us to easily explore these wonderful Scottish mountains and glens, however we have to confess to rewarding ourselves each day at the delightful little pub called `The Croft Inn`, which is located a couple of miles down the road from the lodge, definitely recommend a visit or three.

The lodge itself is welcoming and so charming, the owners have obviously put a lot of thought into equipping it to ensure that their guests have all they need. It seemingly has everything, plus it was immaculately clean, so a real home from home, put simply it was perfect.

A huge thank you, we had a fantastic time and will hopefully be back in the summer to enjoy the longer days.

Owner's Response: Hi Lillie, Thanks for your review we are so pleased you enjoyed our lodge including the charming wee pub `The Croft` nearby. We cherish the delights of the lodge especially its location with access to so many varied and interesting walks whether up hill/mountain or more leisurely along the Glens. We look forward to welcoming you back in the summer months when the days seem endless. Kind regards and thank you again for choosing our lodge. Norrie and Eleanor

WOW!!! What a find.

  • 5 of 5

WOW!! what a find this lodge in Glenlivet is a marvellous place, central to lots of beautiful areas and we had a fantastic time here as this lodge which is a definitely home from home nestling in the midst of breathtaking scenery. The property was exactly as described with the photos giving an accurate representation of how lovely it is. As for wildlife again WOW, one evening totally out of the blue we even had a surprise visitor, there standing in the garden bold as brass and twice as proud was a large red Stag luckily the camera was nearby allowing us to take a memorable and unique picture. However on taking it I had forgotten to switch off the flash startling our guest as we then watched in wonder as it bounded away jumping over the fence as though it were just stepping onto the pavement.

The lodge itself is ideally situated for lovely walks, cycling and outdoor activities or just sit back breathing in the fresh mountain air in the spacious garden, on the veranda or simply lounge leisurely inside looking out of the large patio doors at the spectacular view as the light magically changes turning the scenery into a wonderful array of colours .

It is spotlessly clean, cosy, very comfortable, well appointed and immaculate provided with everything you could possibly need. The lodge is perfect and without doubt one of the most beautiful locations we've ever stayed in, it is also one of the best supplied with even an iron, ironing board and plenty of towels provided, it even has tablets for the dishwasher, powder for the washing machine, washing-up liquid, scouring pads/sponges, rolls of tin foil, kitchen roll ... I could go on! In a nutshell this lodge is perfectly equipped and we have never stayed in a better cared for holiday home. I repeat it was perfect.

We loved our time at Glenlivet lodge and would definitely recommend it, we can't wait to return!

Thank You.
