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

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.

An amazing peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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.

Nice place for a remote retreat, but close to lots of distilleries if you're on the hunt for whisky

a comfortable lodge with beautifull views

  • 5 of 5

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.
