Hans and Sara Grabowski purchased this Cabin in 2011
Why Hans and Sara Grabowski chose Ballindalloch
When we first saw the lodge we fell in love with its Scandinavian feel, the peaceful location and the stunning views. Watch the deer at dusk and listen to the owl in the woods at night! The Cairngorm National Park is minutes away, the Lecht ski area suits families with children and is only 30 minutes drive away, or go to Aviemore for a more challenging days skiing. Never seen the northern lights? There is a good chance you will see them here. Ben Rinnes at the back makes for a great little hike with amazing views and it manageable even if you are not very fit or have small children.
What makes this Cabin unique
This is the ideal base to get away from it all, but there is plenty to do on sunny days and rainy ones. The lodge is fully equipped and very comfortable, and has games, DVDs and a Playstation 2 to keep everyone amused, if the sun isn't shining. Enjoy the walks from the doorstep, or on Glenlivet Estate, visit a castle or a distillery, and Inverness and Aberdeen are not too far away, if it gets too quiet, or you need some shopping therapy!

Spent three days in the lodge and it was definitely not long enough! Really loved the location, tranquil, total peace and quiet, just what we were looking for. The lodge is amazing and the owners have thought of absolutely everything you might need during your stay. It's really cosy and we were surprised by how large it is inside. Did not want to leave! Will definitely be back as it is perfectly situated to explore the surrounding area. Thank you so much it was a pleasure to be able to stay in such a lovely place.
My fiancé and I along with our 4 dogs thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lodge. We were fortunate enough to have brilliant weather almost everyday so we took full advantage of the nearby walks and woodland trails. We will definitely be returning in the future.
