  • "9 of us had a brilliant stay for 3 nights due to a 70th birthday and all of us were very impressed by An Torr."

    We loved the house itself and the location. An Torr was deceptively spacious and was well equipped for every day living.

  • "3 families stayed at An Torr and we loved the spacious house, comfortable beds, huge kitchen and very useful utility room."

    It was central to all the places we'd planned to visit - deer feeding, horse riding, Aviemore, Loch Insh, Inverness, zip wiring and Landmark, the 'parallel roads of Laggan' and the Highland Folk Museum in Newtonmore. Didn't have time to swim at the pool in the local hotel. Everyone was catered for. Lovely holiday.

  • "Very central location for access to a number of facilities between Carrbridge and Newtonmore, so plenty to do and see, for all the family."

    The house itself was very spacious, more than the advertising photos would suggest.

  • "We had a lovely stay in An Torr."

    The house is amazing. Beautiful setting with a big sunny garden. The kitchen had everything you would need to cook and bake. Newtonmore itself is a great base and we did lots of walking. And no midges. I would definitely stay there again.

  • "We loved our stay here, so peaceful with lovely views."

    We enjoyed watching the deer and rabbits in the neighbouring field. The house is lovely, spacious comfortable and very well equipped. Ample room for parking several cars. When travelling to Aviemore it’s well worth travelling on the B9152 rather than the A9 for some beautiful scenery. The only minor negative for the house is that the windows internally and external need cleaning with a squeegee blade, as they were very smeary and detracted from the views We would definitely want to visit again.

  • "6 adults and 5 children spent a fab week at An Torr - plenty of room for us all to do our own thing."

    Outside space excellent for kids to enjoy. House was very well equipped with excellent kitchen. House in great location for local amenities and within easy reach of the surrounding places of interest - Newtonmore Highland Folk Museum, Cairngorm Ski Centre, Mountain Railway and Tubing - kids loved it all and staff were so helpful. We all enjoyed a trip on the Strathspey Steam Railway and Afternoon Tea was a treat - staff very welcoming. Would certainly recommend An Torr as a great holiday house. Thank you to the owner for our stay. Margaret.

    It is well equipped, warm and comfy. Great to have access to a garage to store bikes and skis, and a drying room for after rainy days. The piano could do with a tune though!

    It was well equipped with crockery and cutlery, loads of storage in the kitchen and around the house. A brilliant big washing machine made dealing with the children's clothes, an easy task. Great garden space for the kids to play outside. The owners were also very helpful and flexible.

    It is very clean. Beds are very comfy and bedding and ample towels are provided. It is in a fantastic location and it has a big garden and drive. The Wildcat Experience is a great activity to do around Newtonmore for both kids and adults! The Folk Museum is well worth a visit too. Would definitely return to An Torr!

    There was lots of space and the beds were very comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped and very sociable for the cooks. There are loads of walks in the local area. We would love to come and stay again the future - it would be lovely in the winter. Just a few things that could be improved - The blue recycling bin was full upon our arrival so we had to bag our recycling for the week. A second blue bin would solve that issue. The garden furniture was looking a bit tired and the floor sweeper downstairs needed a new head. We had a great holiday, thank you so much!!

  • "An Torr is in a fantastic location."

    The Glen hotel is easily walkable for a night cap and though the shop is further away it's a flat walk and very pleasant. Loads to do in the local area. We were 2 families with 2, 6 and 7 year old children and they had a ball. Feeding the reindeer was magical and Loch Morlich was so beautiful. On rainy days there are a couple of soft plays within easy driving distance but we were lucky so were outside most of the time. The Balavil hotel has a small indoor swimming pool which was great fun but it does get really busy so go early evening to avoid the hoards! The Highland Folk museum is huge and we went twice, and the Highland Wildlife park was a lovely jaunt too. The Landmark Centre in Carrbrige was a huge hit. Pricey to get in but it really is a whole day affair so that makes it worth the money. The house itself was tremendously well equipped; warm, cosy and really relaxing after a day out. The only downside was the downstairs twin bedroom was noisy if people moving about or having a shower upstairs.
