An autumn break in the Scottish Highlands with Balnagown Estates

The autumn can be a great time of year to visit the Scottish Highlands, as the weather is often much kinder than people expect and there are far few visitors on the roads. The landscape also takes on a different and beautiful feel, with the birch trees turning gold and the heather moors taking on a more dramatic hue.

At Balnagown Estates we have nine beautiful self-catering properties to offer you, with three at our Invercassley Estate, one at Duchally Estate and five at Balnagown Estate itself. The five at Balnagown Estate offer luxury and plenty to do in the estate grounds, with fishing, archery, cycling – we have plenty of bikes which are free to use – plus a superbly equipped sports and games hall. Balnagown also enjoys an especially kind climate with its location close to the shores of the Cromarty Firth, with just a fraction of the rain that the west coast has to endure just some 60 miles away.

The properties at Inverscassley, which is further north and situated around the village of Rosehall in Sutherland, are also of a very high standard but here the landscape is more rugged and wild. And this is even more the case at Duchally Lodge – our only property at Duchally Estate – which is very remote and guarantees peace and tranquillity!

So if it’s luxury, a kind climate and with plenty to do, then the five properties at Balnagown Estate are the ones to choose from. If you’d like something a bit more ‘real Highlands’ then one of  the three properties at Invercassley are worth looking at, and if you want something ‘total Highlands’ which is remote and in a stunning location, then it’s definitely Duchally Lodge.

Whichever one of our Scottish cottages and lodges you consider booking this Autumn, you can do so in the complete confidence that the property will be of a high standard, and this because they are all either rated 4 or 5 star by the Scottish Tourist Board.
