    “The Shielings was warm and welcoming on a cold February afternoon.”

    The house was generously equipped, with comfortable beds and spotlessly clean throughout.

    The house was generously equipped, with comfortable beds and spotlessly clean throughout. Being on the edge of the village gave us easy walking access to all the village amenities, and excellent road access to the Cairngorms National Park. Our particular favourites were the Cairngorms Reindeer Centre and The Highland Wildlife Park. Will definitely be visiting again. Many thanks for a great holiday. Iain and Glynis.

About the location


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.

NOTE: This property requires a good housekeeping bond of £200.
