Comfortable and clean. More than enough room for us, three Oap's.
Don't miss the lovely walks nearby and the shops are not too far.
Very quiet village.The Highland Folk Museum is just across the road and should not be missed. We visited the site twice!

Ther is all you need, but it is rather small with 2 grown ups and two dogs. There is much noise in the early morning because of the nearby street ( 6:00 a.m.). The photo is a few years old.
It could have been cleaner, especially in the kitchen. Had another expectation after reading the other reviews.
Good place to visit the central Highlands. Not more - not less.
Price - top. Value - o.k.
very relaxing home from home.

The house is small but perfectly formed, with eveything that you need, washing machine, dishwasher, clothes horse, etc. The decor is lovely and up to date, it has a secure garden which is a bonus, if like us you have a dog. We saw three red squirrels on the first morning of our stay, and at least one everyday after that!
It is an ideal location for the Highland Folk Museum which is just across the road, Newtonmore Riding Centre, for pony trekking and don't forget the Wildcat Experience which is a must, it is also close to watersports, and plenty of cycling and walking routes. The Glen Hotel does a lovely bar meal, would recommend booking first though.
The welcome info might need updated though as there was no recycling centre at Glen Road carpark, the previous tennent had left glass in the recycling bin, so it did not get collected while we we there, maybe due to this. The kitchen could do with a baking sheet or two, and a knife sharpener, but these are just trivial points. I would recomend this proprty to friends, and also book it again. We had a lovely time here.

This is a very modern clean and comfortable cottage set in a peaceful location. Plenty of birds and red squirrels visit on a daily basis looking for their breakfast.
Newtonmore itself has plenty to do, all within easy walking distace - The Highland folk museum, The Macpherson museum( Both of which are free entry) and beautiful walks up the back of the town where if you go at dusk, you can see herds of deer. This is a lovely place to take dogs.
There is also a competition to find as many large scottish wild cats, which are hidden in gardens etc all over the town - great fun for the kids.
All in all this is a great cottage in a great location. Would definately go back.

Excellent accommodation. Everything was new, clean and comfortable. The heating was very efficient, so much so that we didn't really need the log burner (which we were looking forward to!)despite near freezing temperatures.
Plenty to do and see in the local area and further afield.
It would have been useful to know that there was a well stocked co-op nearby and it would have saved us bringing lots of food with us.
We'll definitly try to visit again. It's just a pity that it's not bigger so that we could take friends with us!
Convenient location, cosy accommodation

Well appointed, dog friendly, cosy cottage. Kitchen small but well equipped, (except for ovenware). Heating very efficient, but electronic controls need attention - only able to control manually. Woodburning stove excellent, produces heat ++, with very little fuel.
Cottage in great location for most attractions as well as hill walking areas. Highland Folk Museum nearby, admission free!! and worthwhile, interesting visit. Red squirrels are frequently seen both at the museum and the cottage.

Sunny summer in Scotland!

Ideally situated for walking into the small town of Newtonmore which had plenty of places to eat and drink as well as places of interest to visit. We needn't have driven all week had we not been curious to see the Cairngorms.
Cottage was well resourced and very clean. The patio garden was sunny throughout the day and evening so breakfast and tea could be eaten outdoors.
Fantastic house, ideal location.

This was a very good, well equiped house. Very comfortable with all you need for a holiday. We had a lovely time. It's a great location for exploring the cairngorms, ben nevis. Loads to do in the surrounding areas. We would like to go back as we couldn't fit it all in.

Having stayed in other rental cottages a few times this cottage was in a class of its own! We were very comfortable and loved the week we stayed. The owner had obviously put a lot of thought into what would help to make the stay comfortable. The house was very well equipt from dvds, games to everything you would ever need in the kitchen. The cottage was very nicely decorated and furnished as well.
enjoyable week relaxing and so quiet

I have stayed at this property on several occassons and find it a home from home. It is perfectly located for the local attractions and facilities of Newtonmore.
