Overview
Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Newtonmore, Badenoch and Strathspey, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
The main thing our guests comment on is the views of the Cairngorm mountains, which can be seen from the cottage and garden. We are located above the village so these can be enjoyed in peace and quiet. In the foreground are sheep and lambs, as we are in a crofting area, together with lapwings, curlews, oyster catchers and hares. But also our guests also find the cottage well equipped, warm and comfortable. The cottage is rated 3* by Wyndhams Vacation rentals (2013- 2017) and previously by Visit Scotland (2007-12).

The majority of our guests come to walk or bike, which can be done from the door. The Newtonmore wildcat trail is only 200m from the house. And there is an unlimited number of local walks and rides.

This cottage is a family cottage best suited for a couple with up to 2 children; there is a king-size bed and two singles in a l...

Interaction with guests
We live on site and will generally be around the evening you arrive to greet you. The level of interaction is up to you! Most guests prefer their own space so we try not to impose ourselves, but we are on hand to answer any queries (or if we are away ourselves we provide phone and email contact numbers). This week I have provided information on local health support and local music sessions for instance! There are 3 cottages onsite so there is also the opportunity to chat with other holiday makers.

Reviewed 20 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The whole point of hiring a holiday cottage is so that it feels like home - and Loft does. Warm, comfortable - spotlessly clean - we had a great stay. We were lucky with the weather, so didn't get much time to use any of the games or books, but we tucked into the welcoming tea and biscuits waiting on...

It's a self catering accomodation,very clean and self sufficient.Our children enjoyed the farm land around the area and even got to feed some lambs and enjoyed that very much.This accomodation is very good...

Spent a week with my wife, daughter and dog in February and no one day has been the same in terms of weather and the way the landscape changed. The most appealing fact regarding the strategic position of the lodge is that it is right at the bottom of the mountains and you can start your walking or climbing adventure...

About the neighbourhood
Newtonmore is a traditional highland village with a long and colourful history: visitors can learn more at the Highland folk museum or Clan Macpherson museums located in the village. There is also an annual highland games and clan gathering in August as well as weekly shinty matches. Some of you will have seen the area featured in the popular TV programme ' Monarch of the Glen'.Today it depends on agriculture and tourism. The former can be enjoyed from the cottage in spring, when lambs skip in front of the cottage. Local restaurants serve good local produce to satisfy your appetite after a day spent hillwalking, mountain biking or skiing. Or you can pursue more artistic endeavours, such as photography, painting or learning how to make fused glass crafts at the cottage (not included... more
