Whether you’re staying in one of our holiday cottages or not, there is a great reason to grab the kids and venture Northwards this half term. Newtonmore has a unique attraction specially for families with children – The Wildcat Experience. The community has sited life-size, accurate models of the Scottish Wildcat in gardens, on roofs and up in trees for visitors to find. All the cats are painted differently with their own character – the Cat’s Pyjamas, Cat-a-log, That Loving Feline, etc. At the moment, there are 79 cats hidden throughout the village. If you find 25, you earn A Wildcat Experience certificate, while, if you find 50, you get a prize. Anyone finding them all gets an even bigger prize. Children love the treasure hunt element and adults appreciate an attraction, which keeps their children happy for hours and hours outdoors in the fresh air! The Wildcat Centre, beside the Village Hall, is the place to go if you’re interested in signing up.

Our Newtonmore holiday cottages are now accepting last minute short breaks for the remainder of this February half-term. With a last minute break, you can save 35% on the weekly rental price of a cottage. Why not give the Wildcat Experience a go?
