    “We booked last October and 3 days into the holiday I loved it so much I booked Fronthill for this April week and again this coming October.”

    That's how good it is. No point going anywhere else because Fronthill has it all. The million dollar view that changes constantly, wonderful walks from the door, the friendly down to earth locals, the highland folk museum, cafes, a small supermarket you can walk too so hardly used the car, the wild cat trail, the wind ,the sun, the sheep, the bubbling burns, mountains, hills, snow, rain then more snow then sunny again. The house is light, spacious, cosy warm, beds so comfy, facilities perfect ...

The house is light, spacious, cosy warm, beds so comfy, facilities perfect. Great for kids especially. Toys and games kept us connected as a family with hardly any internet browsing because we were so busy. Now that's priceless. Cant thank the owners enough for sharing this very special gem.

The property

Newtonmore 1 mile.

Occupying a desirable hillside location, this spacious detached wooden cottage has stunning views over the surrounding fields and across to the mountains.

This cottage is ideal for a family or group of friends who want to explore the fabulous Cairngorms National Park together and participate in the many activities that the area has to offer.

Approached by a private access track the cottage is surrounded by a pretty lawned garden and on pleasant days it is a perfect spot to sit outside and soak up the beauty and atmosphere.

Well-equipped and freshly presented there are three generously proportioned bedrooms, a double, a twin and an adult size bunks room.

The sitting room, with its cosy woodburner, is very spacious and boasts two picture windows allowing for full appreciation of the wonderful views.

There is a fitted kitchen with dining area and this is a great space for guests to enjoy home prepared meals together around the table after an active day.

The facilities of Newtonmore are just a 15 minute walk away, and apart from a good selection of shops and cafes, there is a traditional Harris Tweed Shop, ideal for buying those holiday gifts!

Just 20 minutes away is Loch Insh which is the hub for watersports and here you can enjoy sailing, canoeing and windsurfing with tuition available if required.

For the less active why not visit the Funicular Railway, a unique visitor experience where visitors can access the Top Station of the Cairngorms and enjoy the breathtaking views from 3,500 ft?

This is a fantastic area with stunning scenery and loads of wildlife and this special cottage will ensure a great holiday for all.

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..
