What a great find :) :). It was perfect in every way! I chose this based on other reviews and was delighted with it. I could not find anything I would improve - it was just fantastic!!
Contemporary large room - The Firs - with great big bathroom and bath. Lovely big bed and every attention to detail you could think of. Real coffee and nice chocolate/biscuits. Extra blankets and extra heater made available if got cold (not needed). Room lovely and cozy.
The owners have thought of everything you would need for a treat weekend. Thank you guys you made a wee couple needing a break away very happy :) :)
We were given a warm and friendly welcome from Graeme and Marion, the owners of Coig na Shee. A stunning late Victorian building in one of the most beautiful areas of the world.
It is kept immaculate, warm, and is exceedingly tastefully decorated. We especially loved the en suite bath, with a great view of the trees and birds of prey. Great for a soak with a glass of wine. Our room (The Firs) was a great size and very comfortable.
No tartan, no stripes, no chintz, just stylish and relaxing.
The breakfasts were a treat, tasty and with a wide choice; and plenty of it before going walking up in the Cairngorms.
Marion even looked after drying our boots and kit out ready for the next day. A great bonus for the discerning mountaineer who needs a decent bed, comfort and breakfast cooked for you rather than a tent, sleeping bag, wet kit and trangia stove nowadays!
Even our flasks were filled with "real" coffee for us.
It was the attention to detail we liked. Real coffee and a cafetiere in the room, a mini fridge, sparkling mineral water, etc. There were DVDs, books, games and magazines available.
The hosts also chilled our wine and provided wine glasses.
There are some excellent restaurants locally, one within walking distance-Blasta. A culinary treat.
We loved our stay and can't wait to go back.
This is one of the most beautiful B+Bs you will find in Scotland. It is in a beautiful big stone house with a huge garden. The rooms are HUGE and with lovely modern furnishings. Lovely cooked breakfast as well. We ate just down the road in a restaurant called Blasta which was fantastic and also in a restaurant about 15minutes away called Ord Ban which served exceptional food as well. Overall, a flawless experience.
Wanting to stay somewhere near 'Monarch of the Glen' country and experience country Scotland, we were advised by a fellow Australian that we had to go stay at Coig Na Shee. We originally only booked one night but after being made to feel so at home by the wonderful Marion and Graeme, and being offered the best breakfast in our 3 months of travelling (and ever!) we booked another 3 nights. I cannot speak higher of our stay at Coig Na Shee - the perfect B&B experience but offering so much more. You never feel awkward and as if you're staying in someone's house but at the same time the hosts go out of their way to make you feel welcome and have the most enjoyable stay. The rooms are classy, clean, and personalised with all the extras (plunger coffee, herbal tea, fresh milk) you could want. Although the town of Newtonmore appears to be 'off the tourist route' the drive is stunning and if you are travelling by car is only 1hr drive max to great attractions - just ask Marion and Graeme for the best tourist attractions and best ever value packed lunch!!
I could write a book about how fantastic this place is and how it was one of the main highlights of our 3 month European holiday but I wont - just do yourself a favour and stay at Coig Na Shee.
We could not imagine a better place to stay than Coig Na Shee. Marion and Graeme are just the friendliest, most fantastic hosts. The house itself is a beautiful mountain lodge and the Newtonmore surroundings are wonderful. Our room was very large and the bed was comfortable as could be. We slept with the windows open at night as the weather was mild and it was so quiet. Breakfast was also perfect. There may be other places to stay around Newtonmore but we'll never find out as this is the only place we will ever want to stay.
