  • “My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at this great property, our stay was fantastic!”

    The signal box had everything we needed, it was well stocked and so lovely a place. We were treated to a lovely homemade chocolate cake on arrival and milk in the fridge, which hubby loved as I'm vegan so he enjoyed the lot over the week we stayed! It was so peaceful a stay, there are plenty of books to read on all sorts of subjects if you get bored at all, I only managed one but fancied reading a lot more!

    The signal box had everything we needed, it was well stocked and so lovely a place. We were treated to a lovely homemade chocolate cake on arrival and milk in the fridge, which hubby loved as I'm vegan so he enjoyed the lot over the week we stayed! It was so peaceful a stay, there are plenty of books to read on all sorts of subjects if you get bored at all, I only managed one but fancied reading a lot more! There is a train that passes every now and then but it didn't disturb us, we just got very into watching for the different trains. Its in a great location also, close to many different walks and nearby towns and places of interest, we also really appreciated the sauna after some Munro climbing! It is also pretty close, about 10-15 minute walk away from a few shops, restaurants and pubs of which I found a few were vegan friendly luckily as I was thinking I would be cooking all own food which there definitely is the facilities to do this.We really hope to visit again in the future!

The property

Something a bit special!

This quirky detached wooden property, built in 2004 in the form of a signal box, is adjacent to the station in the Badenoch & Strathspey village of Newtonmore and was featured in The Times' list of '50 best cottages, beach houses and rural retreats' in January 2013.

To make the most of the panoramic views towards the River Spey and Cairngorm Mountains, the accommodation is upside down, with a spacious, open plan living area on the first floor, while on the ground floor are a double bedroom and bathroom with sauna.

Decorated to a high standard, this charming property is in an ideal location to explore the village and take advantage of the walking in the area.

The cottage is 150 metres from a link into the Wildcat Trail - a 7km orbital walk and path network.

The other attractions of the Cairngorms National Park are also within easy reach - an excellent base at any time of year!

About the location

NEWTONMORE

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.
