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. Wildcat Trail and Wildcat Experience has been enjoyed by previous guests to Cruachan. Hogmanay in Newtonmore draws people from all around to enjoy 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. Teacoffeesugar also supplied.

    This cottage was perfect for our needs. We stayed with our 2 dogs, who loved the garden, especially in the snow. The location is great for exploring the Cairngorms and Newtonmore is a lovely village with good amenities. There are plenty of walks from the door of the cottage. The only way our holiday would have been better was if the snow hadn't melted so soon.

    The cottage is in an excellent location in a lovely village. Very well equipped apart from WiFi especially as 4g signal wasn’t very good either. Lovely welcome pack from owner Andrew as well.

    A wee gem of a place. Ideal size and facilities for the two of us and our dog. Cosy cottage ideally situated with good local amenities for essentials and easy access to attractions in Speyside, from Lagan Wolftrax to Cairngorm. Owner was very welcoming and the open fire having been laid in advance was a nice touch. No hesitation in recommending the cottage to anyone with similar needs to our own.

    A lovely warm cottage to stay in and a most appreciated welcome gift of wine and shortbread. Unfortunately we had to cut our holiday short but what we did manage to explore of the area was very nice.

    Cruachan was very warm and comfortable, but the 2'6" bed was awful and is only good enough for a small child, not a grown up like me. This cottage is only good enough for a 'couple'!! Also parking is on the other side of the main road to the cottage through Newtonmore and it is hard to unload.

    Great place, no issues with the cottage, met owner a few times, happy to oblige but wasn't happy re parking my new car on a busy Rd.

    Nice village. House had all amenities but was poorly decorated and very dated. Garden wasn't secure for dogs. Property was right on main road with constant traffic noice.



    out of 10

    Location on the main street is very noisy with lorries, land rovers and motorbikes (not that the helpful landlord can do anything about that, especially as it's summer!). The bedroom and lounge are at the front of the cottage facing out to the road, which doesn't help with noise levels. The cottage does have everything you need for self catering and was clean and tidy on arrival. However the décor is a little tired, and it is a small cottage for two people and a dog! The bath is also half sized and not really conducive to a relaxing soak! In the bedroom, we could hear the neighbours chatting (albeit quietly but still a little intrusive). Overall, a little disappointing. I wouldn't stay in this cottage again and would try to find something away from the main street.....

    Stayed for 2 weeks with my girlfriend in June. We experienced all kinds of weather from a sudden heatwave to torrential downpours but either way we loved Newtonmore & the Highlands and always found things to do. We drove all over the area but also made use of the train station close by to travel to Inverness & also Aviemore so I could sample some liquid refreshments at the brewery! Newtonmore is very friendly & we enjoyed the wild cat trail & also hunting for model cats a little more than 2 grown adults probably should! :) The cottage was perfect for our needs right in the centre & within easy reach of pubs & the Letterbox which is a very nice restaurant. The cottage was clean, with a great garden & open fireplace. My only concern when booking was the lack of a dedicated parking spot or driveway but I'm so glad I didn't let this rule it out as we never had an issue parking on the road & managed to park directly opposite the cottage everytime bar once in 2 weeks.
