Things to do

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.

In particular loved the wood burner on in the evening and the lovely views over the open countryside to wake up to in the morning. We had a wonderful stay here, enjoying some peace and quiet away from city living. Perfect house in a perfect location close to amazing scenery, local wildlife to enjoy watching and popular local attractions to keep you entertained. Only a short drive to Aviemore for majority of the amenities. Many thanks to the owner Mike!
