  • Magical!

    Posted by Julie & Alan on 01/12/2022

    We have had a magical time here. The nature and the beauty here has blown us away. Being able to watch the red squirrels has been such a lovely experience and we feel so lucky to have seen them. This really is a home away from home - thank you so much for sharing it with us.

  • Such a wonderful week

    Posted by Erinn on 16/10/2022

    A magical Scottish Place! We have enjoyed a spectacular week at beautiful Loch Na Bo. The woodlands and the trails offered exceptionally peaceful walks. The loch is so lovely - swans and cygnets, herons and martins… they offered us hours of enjoyment. The boat ride and paddle - such fun! Loch Na Bo House is lovely and comfortable. A special place to other friends and family for happy reunions. We were all so comfortable and at ease - everything was perfect for us. Such a wonderful week - thank you for sharing the exquisite nature and beauty.

  • Amazing!

    Posted by Darren and Kim on 30/09/2022

    What an amazing place. Very hard to leave, and thank you for making a dream come true. I will miss this place.

  • A beautiful and relaxing place

    Posted by Michael on 21/08/2022

    I don’t know how you ever leave here. This is a very beautiful and relaxing place. We found it enchanting and so enjoyable. Thank you for allowing us to come after the 2 year pandemic wait.

  • Incredible

    Posted by Jane on 13/08/2022

    Beautiful house and setting. We rowed the length of the loch, watched squirrels and pine martins, owls and cygnets. Loved all the antiques and especially the old baths. Sorry to leave.

  • We all fell in love

    Posted by John on 24/07/2022

    What a magical place to have been able to spend a special week. Everyone has totally fallen in love with the beauty of this incredibly unique home. We leave feeling very blessed to have been able to share it. The wonderful memories here will live on with us forever.

  • A great stay with many celebrations

    Posted by Erin on 05/06/2022

    So grateful for this special time at this enchanting property. We celebrated with a reunion for 40 years of friendship, 11 years of marriage and a 70th birthday between families. We hope to return in future.

  • The estate and setting is something to be treasured!

    Posted by Denise on 26/05/2022

    Remarkable and magical! Family memories were made here. Our family of 12 enjoyed the history, the space, the grounds, the walks, the views , family dinners and of course … the swan family. Loc Na Bo is special and this estate and setting really is something to be treasured!! Sadly we couldn’t stay longer. Thank you.

  • Highly recommend!

    Posted by Jennifer on 20/03/2022

    A peaceful and utterly charming stay in the countryside ~ gracious while not too precious, and accommodating for our group of 8 while still offering privacy. Plenty of room & beauty outdoors, as well: A chiminea in the courtyard for cool evenings, stunning gardens, beautiful trails around the loch, a row boat, and even two swan families... Highly recommend!

  • Perfect for a family reuinion

    Posted by Graeme on 11/03/2022

    What a fantastic place to stay. We rented Loch Na Bo for a family reunion and it was perfect...lots of space, great bedrooms and communal areas, lots of character, well equipped and in an incredible location on the loch..we saw deer, red squirrels, a visiting pine marten and deer. Didn't catch a fish in the loch but enjoyed rowing on it! The surrounding mountains and coast are stunning…

  • Great location

    Posted by Darren on 09/01/2022

    Beautiful house and property. Low key elegance and privacy. The house is perfect for larger families or groups. Easy access to Inverness, Moray and Speyside. Elgin is very close by for shopping and restaurants.
