    • “My family and I really enjoyed our holiday the lodge is in a great location just 5 minutes off the A9 and so close to an abundance of activities from fishing to zip wiring walking to sailing We were blown away by the beautiful landscapes that surround the area for me the hot tub was the icing on the cake as the weather wasn't the best but that didn't put us off hopping in after a thrill seeking day at landmark forest adventure park. Will definitely be booking again for next year and for two weeks too. #lovethespeyvalley”

    Mrs Wilson, Grimsby, November 2015

    • “The lodge was so lovely and absolutely spotless, the hot tub was a god send after a long day. The site where the lodge is situated is very peaceful and the few lodges that are there are well spread out so you feel very private. There was plenty of room for parking next to the lodge. We loved it and will certainly be going back to this lodge!”

About the location


Kingussie 3 miles; Aviemore 15 miles; Inverness 47 miles.

Overlooking the River Spey, in the Cairngorms National Park (Britain's largest), Newtonmore has several shops and pubs, as well as two excellent, award-winning museums - the Highland Folk Museum and Clan MacPherson Museum. Newtonmore's Wildcat Trail is a popular, 7-mile circular walk around the edge of the village, taking in the River Spey with woodland, moorland and wonderful views across the valley to the Cairngorms, and behind the village to the Monadhliath Mountains - a fitting introduction to the delights of the National Park. For younger visitors, the Folk Park, the Wildlife Park at Kincraig, Landmark at Carrbridge and the Steam Railway are all outstanding local attractions. The area offers fine golf, fishing, pony trekking, walking, birdwatching, cycling, mountain biking, climbing and skiing, making it an ideal base from which to discover all that this scenic area of Scotland has to offer.
