The property

An immaculately-presented, semi-detached cottage situated on the outskirts of Newtonmore, in the breathtaking Cairngorms National Park.

Deceptively spacious with a contemporary edge, this immaculate cottage is set in tranquil surroundings, despite being close to a wonderful range of amenities and places of interest.

Còmhla would be perfect for a small family group, couples, or friends looking to enjoy the scenery, wildlife, and many outdoor pursuits on offer in the Cairngorms National Park.

Set solely on the ground floor there are two tastefully presented bedrooms with one benefiting from an en-suite shower room.

The well-equipped kitchen makes preparing meals an easy task and they can be enjoyed in the lovely sitting room.

On blustery winter nights, curl up by the woodburning stove and lose yourself in a book or enjoy a film.

From the kitchen a door leads out into the rear garden which is an impressive space and would suit guests who will enjoy an evening barbecue on the large decked area with lots of seating, an outdoor drinks fridge and plenty of space to relax.

A fire pit takes up the central space of the decked area and guests can certainly enjoy pleasant evenings by the glow of the fire.

The charming village of Newtonmore lies at the southern end of the Spey Valley, in the heart of the Scottish Highlands.

Practise your swing at the Newtonmore Golf Club, beside the River Spey or visit The Highland Folk Museum which is very close by and enjoy the history of over 200 years of Highland life.

Newtonmore is famous for the Wild Cat Experience and both children and adults will love to take part in identifying where exactly these cats are at various sites throughout the village, with a certificate presented to those who can find 25 of them.

The Cairngorms National Park has so much to offer visitors of all ages, from outdoor pursuits to sensational scenery, and an abundance of wildlife.

Guests will love the comfort, presentation and location of this great cottage and have a wonderful time in the Highlands.

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.
