  • Ms Barth

    “I almost don't want to tell anyone about this Hidden Gem or everyone will be booking and I won't get a look in but I can not recommend the Signal Box highly enough.”

    ...

    Not only is this a unique property but it is furnished to the highest standards and equipped wonderfully - and the delighter is the sauna without a doubt. Whatever you come to the Cairngorms for the location is perfect with plenty of walking right from the front door and so much to do and see. If you just want to relax then the ability to curl up in front of the log burner and take in the view and unwind letting your day be governed by the train timetable then there is nowhere better. I will be back.

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.
