    “This is a nice quiet cottage, without a doubt the best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in, there was even a hoover for ashes from the fire!”

    . The location is nice and is handy for a variety of walks and cycles in the area. Instructions from the owners, including lots of detail in a folder were clear and useful.

The property

Newtonmore 6 miles.

Located on a pretty hillside in the crofting township of Balgowan beside the Monadhliath Mountains, this charming semi-detached cottage provides elevated and far-reaching views in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park.

Well-appointed and welcoming, there are two nicely presented bedrooms and a very well-equipped kitchen/dining room where meals can be prepared and enjoyed.

The sitting room with its warming multi-fuel stove ensures that guests can stay cosy all year round and the supply of fuel is just outside the door.

The entrance porch also has plenty of space for muddy boots at the end of a busy day exploring.

Tigh Beag is ideal for a couple or small group of friends who really want to embrace this wonderful area and all that it has to offer.

It will be hard to leave this lovely cottage but there is a vast array of outdoor pursuits literally on your very doorstep!

The celebrated Wolftrax Mountain Biking Trail Centre is just minutes away and of course the walking opportunities, coupled with some fantastic wildlife spotting, are endless.

There is something for everyone and nearby Kincraig has an amazing wildlife park and a great watersports centre which offers a diverse variety of activities for a fun day out, such as paddle sports, fishing and rowing, as well as archery and a dry ski slope.

Aviemore the capital of the National Park is 21 miles north and offers even more activities and great places for shopping and dining.

Nearby Newtonmore has a wide range of shops and friendly pubs.

A great location for all ages with this lovely cosy cottage to return home to at the end of a busy day.

About the location


Kingussie 3 miles; Aviemore 15 miles; Fort William 45 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.
