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.you 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 Ballindalloch
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.

Warm and cozy cabin during a cold start to April close to sights.
The owner responded quickly to our queries and the cabin was cozy, warm, comfortable, and immaculate. Comfortable beds and we made some marvelous meals there as well. Everything we needed in the kitchen (except for coffee making equipment-although instant coffee was provided). The view out the back sliding glass doors is stupendous. The dirt track was driveable even with 6 inches of wet snow in our 2 wheel drive sedan. The house is isolated but it was nice spending evenings there after our days exploring out and about. Great atmosphere and food a couple miles away at the Croft Inn open Tuesdays through Sundays for dinner only. Plenty to see and do in the area if you don't mind driving a bit. Would come back for sure.
Thank you Arthur and we are so glad you enjoyed our Highland getaway as you were seeing and experiencing it during some incredible weather conditions, that is why we make sure our lodge is well equipped, so no matter what your plans it is comfortable, warm cosy and welcoming and of course we would love to welcome you back anytime so that you can then savour the Scottish Highlands when the weather is more welcoming. That said the sights and the experience can be magical during these bouts of extreme weather conditions.
We look forward to welcoming you to our lodge again.
An amazing peaceful place
We spend a few days in the Lodge in the middle of the recent snow storm, and we had a wonderful time. The place is so peaceful and cosy! And the view is amazing.
The lodge itself is modern, well equipped, warm and spacious, with very comfortable beds.
The location is remote, 9 miles to the nearest town, but this was exactly what we wanted. The only company we had was the birds on the nearby bird feeder! It is a great base to explore the Cairngormes.
We will be back!
Thank you Lisa/Steve,
Yes our lodge is particularly beautiful when it snows with the peace and seclusion at that time making it even more special. We would love to have you back and look forward to welcoming you to experience the lodge and the area under different weather conditions and you will be just as surprised how nice it is then too.
Norrie and Eleanor
Absolute peace and quiet
Quite remote location but easy to find. Great surroundings and activities nearby. Would definitely stay again
Thank you so much for taking the time to write those kind words. The peace, quiet and secluded location of our hilltop lodge is exactly why we love it so much and we look forward to welcoming you back soon to enjoy the tranquillity it provides.
Norrie and Eleanor
Nice place for a remote retreat, but close to lots of distilleries if you're on the hunt for whisky
Nice and quiet with a beautiful view. Great place to base ourselves to explore some of the whisky the area has to offer.
Thank you Michelle for the review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed our lodge as much as we do ourselves, and you are right the area is perfect if you like `the amber nectar` as there are numerous distilleries nestling in some fabulous locations, we hope to welcome you back some time in the future.
Norrie and Eleanor
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!

Thank you Gabriele and family, your comments are most welcome. As we use our lodge constantly ourselves we endeavour to make sure it is always in tip top condition and ready for our guests while having everything needed/provided in the lodge itself, so whether you go walking, cycling or driving to explore the gorgeous surroundings while also taking in the quaint and welcoming, nearby Croft Inn, or simply chilling out and relaxing at the lodge while looking out onto the beautiful views your stay will be memorable.
Beautiful modern Lodge, in a lovely location, for our winters break in a countryside location.
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.
We are so glad that you enjoyed our lodge and the wonderful surrounding area as we strive to keep it perfectly clean and comfortable for all our guests because we use it so often ourselves therefore ensuring it is as we would expect it to be.
Eleanor and I look forward to welcoming you all back sometime in the future. Take care and thanks again for choosing to stay at our lovely Highland Getaway.
Kind regards Norrie and Eleanor
