Description

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.

    We enjoyed our stay in the cottage. Given that the weather was cold and often wet, we were very grateful that the heating was on even in the summer. The directions need updating, as Betty's tea room has disappeared.

    We had a great stay at Cruachan in Newtonmore. The landlord was really friendly and helpful. We had a big storm and a power cut for a few hours and he came and checked on us ( we were fine as we went out for the day anyway) and brought wine, cake and hot water and offered to bring us other food. Definitely above and beyond the call of duty. The cottage is in a great position in the centre of the village with a nice pub, shop and cafes nearby. We did some great walks locally and up into the Monaliath mountains nearby, and also did trips to nearby Aviemore, Cairngorm Railway and the Lecht. We had perfect snowy highland weather on our last two days. Would definitely return.

    Perfect for our requirements (couple with 19m daughter). Some might consider it to be a little "basic" but the cottage has everything you need. The second bedroom is small (single bed) but we only needed it for a travel cot so that was fine. The owner was lovely and very helpful. For the cost and location it is great.
