    “This was our second visit to this cottage, at the same time of year.”

    Once again, we were more than satisfied with the accommodation. Warm, comfortable and well-equipped it was a great place to spend a cold, wet and windy week. The cottage is easily accessible from the main road. The entrance driveway to the rear is flat enough for the icy surface on one of the days not to be a problem.

    Once again, we were more than satisfied with the accommodation. Warm, comfortable and well-equipped it was a great place to spend a cold, wet and windy week. The cottage is easily accessible from the main road. The entrance driveway to the rear is flat enough for the icy surface on one of the days not to be a problem. The rear entrance hall provides useful storage for wet gear and the rest of the property affords excellent drying facilities if required. Central heating fires up quickly and, especially once the wood burner is fired up, can be turned back fairly quickly. Public rooms are comfortable and well-furnished, the tv and its add-ons are easy to operate and, for the area, WiFi is adequate. The kitchen is very well-equipped and there is more than adequate fridge and freezer space. Both bathrooms are clean, hot water is plentiful and towel rails are warm. Bedrooms are clean, warm and comfortable with good storage. Local shopping is excellent: very good Coop at the far end of the village and a good Tesco in Aviemore. Local cafes are friendly and interesting. Antlers is a must! The Boathouse on Loch Insh is always worth a visit and the new Gallery in Kincraig is breathtaking. Contact with the owner was easy and helpful. Finally, we left an electrical item behind when we left and this, too, is being dealt with promptly and efficiently. Oh, and the area speaks for itself, of course.

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.
