The property

This charming cottage is situated in a tranquil area on the outskirts of Newtonmore, within the Cairngorms National Park's natural beauty. Situated in about an acre of mature woodland, Creag Dhubh is the ideal getaway for families looking to get away from everyday life and explore what this part of Scotland has to offer. Kick off your walking boots and head to the lounge, which is furnished with a sofa, chair, and TV with Freeview, to catch up on your favourite shows after a day of fell walking. When you're not at a nearby restaurant, you can whip up a tasty meal in the kitchen, which is equipped with all the necessities for a self-catered stay. The utility room has a convenient washing machine for your laundry. Before deciding between two immaculately arranged bedrooms to get some rest, wash the day away in the bathroom with a shower. The second bedroom has two single zip/link beds that can be combined to form a super-king-size bed upon request, while the master bedroom has a king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom. This Newtonmore cottage has a sizable garden outside, and red squirrels, garden birds, and red deer frequent it throughout the year. The village of Newtonmore is especially well-liked by anglers and grouse hunters, but there is also a wide variety of bars and restaurants if you'd prefer to spend the night out rather than cooking. Explore a variety of hiking, biking, and pony-trekking trails to get a deeper understanding of your environment. The Wild Cat Trail and Wild Cat Experience are local family-friendly activities, and the Clan MacPherson Museum is a great place to learn about your Scottish ancestry! History aficionados, on the other hand, will adore the Highland Folk Museum, which displays how Scottish Highland forefathers lived, how they constructed their dwellings, and how they tilled the soil! At Creag Dhubh, there is much to look forward to throughout your stay.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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.
