Attractive single storey terraced cottage in the pretty Highland village of Newtonmore in the Cairngorm Mountains

Cruachan is an attractive, single-storey terraced cottage situated in the pretty Highland village of Newtonmore in the heart of the Cairngorm Mountains.  This lovely wee cottage has a warm and cosy ambience, with an original fireplace in the main lounge, thick stone walls and two pretty bedrooms. There is a bright modern bathroom and well-equipped kitchen.  The garden is mainly grassed with a small stone patio area.  Newtonmore is a peaceful, friendly village, just 12 miles south of Aviemore.  Known as ‘Monarch of the Glen country’ which was filmed close by, it has a real Highland flavour and some unusual and unique attractions. There is an excellent golf course just a short walk from the back of the cottage, and an interesting Highland Folk Park (free entry) a must for all visitors.  Newtonmore Highland Games on first Saturday of August which includes the Clan MacPherson rally and Mass Pipe Bands marching into the Eilan.  Free tennis courts (rackets and balls provided in cottage).  Wildcat Trail and Wildcat Experience has been enjoyed by previous guests to Cruachan.  Hogmanay in Newtonmore draws people from all around to enhoy the Torchlight Parade and firework display and a free dram to welcome in the New Year!  There is a good selection of small local shops, cafes and restaurants, all within a few yards of the property. The surrounding area is renowned for its wealth of outdoor activities.  There is a large riding centre which offers pony trekking in the surrounding hills and mountain-bike trails, canoeing, sailing, climbing and hill-walking are all available locally.  This area is also famed for its excellent fishing, with the mighty River Spey close to hand. For walkers, the Speyside Way provides over 100 miles of way-marked trails through stunning countryside.  Aviemore, the ‘capital’ of the Cairngorm National Park, is just 10 minutes drive away offers a wealth of sporting opportunities.  Although renowned for its skiing and snowboarding, Aviemore is a village for all seasons and there is a vast array of all year round activities and outdoor pursuits. For the less energetic there is a funicular railway that runs up the side of the Cairngorm mountain range, with incredible views from the top. Visit Britain’s only herd of free-ranging reindeer at the Cairngorm Reindeer Centre or take a husky trail ride through the foothills of the mountains – a memorable and unique day out.  Cruachan provides a complimentary bottle of wine on arrival.  Tea/coffee/sugar also supplied.

    Lovely cottage, great location, prefect for walking. Really well equipt and was nice to turn up to a bottle of wine and a ready built fire. Large co-op just a few minutes walk away, which was great for meals as didn't need to plan in advance. There was a power cut in the village on our first night, but the owner got in contact to warn us in advance and then delivered candles in case we needed them. Before booking we were unsure of location as normally stay more remotely, but both Newtonmore and Cruachan were prefect and we now hope to come back!

    A great cottage with a great garden. We drove 5 minutes from the cottage and we were up in the hills, seemed like we were miles from civilisation. The locals are very friendly too.

    We had a lovely holiday the cottage had everything in it that we needed even soap powder for the washing machine, it was clean and comfortable and Andrew was at the end of the phone if we had any problems [which we didn't] it was a perfect base for the touring we wanted to do, we would go there again.
