Things to do

-Wildlife: The Highland Wild Life Park in Newtonmore is a great place for both children and adults. The park is home to wolves, bison, and even a polar bear! Dog-led sleigh rides through the forests are an option to get very close to the Cairngorm Reindeer. Newtonmore holiday homes are also a good choice for bird watchers, thanks to sightings of Golden Eagles, Dotterel, Buzzards, Snow Bunting, Ptarmigan, and more.

-Walking: The hiking and walking trails in the area are designed to suit all abilities. Some of the trails are short and relatively flat where as others, such as Raliabeag and Phones, are a little more challenging with it being boggy underfoot. The trail Creag Dubh is a hill cut away from the Grey Mountain range, from which deer and wild goats can be spotted. The views from the trails are worth the effort and great for photographers.

-Festivals: The Newtonmore Highland Games are held each year on the first Saturday in August. Visitors in Newtonmore holiday homes are made most welcome with all of the community getting involved in the games creating an exciting atmosphere filled with the sound of bagpipes, people dancing, tossing the caber, and racing each other.

-Family activities: Pony Riding is great way to see the open spaces and stunning scenes. There are plenty of opportunities for challenging adventures for keen and experienced riders and gentle excursions for novices. The Newtonmore Riding Centre organises plenty of treks and also offers carriage riding experiences.

-Museums: There are various interesting museums in the town and surrounding area. The Highland Folk Museum exhibits the working and living conditions of the people who resided in the Highlands in the past, including how they built their homes, tilled the soil and the clothes they wore. Newtonmore also has another museum called Clan Macpherson Museum telling the story of the dynastic clan and their life in the area.

Pictures don't do it justice

5 of 5
Stayed here for a week in August 2017. The pictures do not do the cottage justice. It is very clean and well equipped. The nearest shops,pubs,restaurants and fuel are at Newtonmore which is about 15 mins drive. If you are looking for somewhere peaceful and relaxing this is the place to go. We would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic large house in a great location

5 of 5
Wonderful place to explore the Highlands from in a great location. This large house is modern and spacious and is fantastic for a family/friends getaway. The house has all you need to enjoy your stay with plenty of space and facilities and a lovely view over the local hills and mountains of the Cairngorms. Loads of wildlife - we saw grouse, rabbits, phesants and a fox just in the garden alone plus horses next door. We explored Inverness and Lochness, Fortwilliam and Glencoe, Ben Nevis, Kyle of Lochalsh and Sky from this central area. Also loved going to the hidden Loch an Eilein. Beautiful! Beware of old smoking frying pans and an oversensitive hallway smoke alarm though when making breakfast :)
