“Book It Quick”
This property is superb, purpose built as a holiday let using wood which has been sourced locally and is very comfortable.It has everything you could possibly want including excellent views and the pleasure of passing trains which are not at all intrusive,even the very occasional one passing during the night which all adds to the ambience. The location is very convenient for touring with good access to the A9 and even the West Coast at Fort William is only an hour away If you do not want to use a car you can get a train to Inverness or Perth virtually from the front door. Book it quickly because it is,rightly,very popular and one of the very best self catering lets in Scotland.
“Perfect week! A great start to married life!”
The Signal Box was easy to find, close to pubs, shops and places to eat. The place itself was well kitted out with everything you could need! The Wildcat Walk was the best...I think it's based around kids, but becomes highly addictive!
“Very relaxing holiday”
A lovely comfortable cottage and a nice welcome from the owner with homemade cake. Cottage could not be better. Very clean and comfortable with great views. Only suggestion I would make would be that a tumble dryer would be useful for winter stays.
We loved all aspects of the Signal Box! It was very comfortable- everything we needed was provided,( even things we thought we didn't need like chocolate cake) which was delicious! The owners went out of theitr way to provide a wonderfull holiday home for their guests! 10 out of 10.
“it had everything you could want and more fantastic accommadatio”
the signal box was central to most places it was comfortable light and airy great fun we loved it so much we did not want to leave. the only down side to the signal box is that it is difficult to book again for next year as it seems fully booked up you should build more fantastic
“You Don't Need A Car!”
Having the train literally on our doorstep really made this holiday. The Signalbox is on the platform of Newtonmore station. We arrived by train and left for home on the Caledonian Sleeper. We used the train to visit Inverness and Aviemore, for skiing at Cairngorm and walking in the Glenmore Forest. The cottage, with the living room and kitchen upstairs gave us lovely views towards the Cairngorms. It also made us into noseyparkers: we couldn't resist looking to see who got on and off the trains that stopped at the station! The cottage was very well appointed even having a sauna cubicle downstairs. We loved the log burner and the limitless supply of wood to keep it going. There was a marked walking trail around Newtonmore, about 6 miles, that is well worth doing. The village has a decent Co-op and the local garage has a shop too. There are a couple of pubs in the village and at least one hotel open to non-residents. One disappointment was that the restaurant recommended by many in the Visitors Book was closed for the two weeks at the end of January as was the most interesting looking shop in the village.
“Delightful signal box - feeling of space, wonderful views.”
Greeted by the owner on our arrival at the station. A very special holiday home, with all home comforts on hand. Very clean, cosy and we enjoyed seeing the trains arriving each evening and early mornings. Great walks from the front door. Took the train to Avimore and spent the day walking at the Cairngorm Mountain centre. Short distance to the local shops. A lovely place to spend a relaxing week, with the bonus of wonderful scenery.
“Beautiful property and a lovely location”
The house was well furnished with everything and more you could need. We used the sauna after enjoying long walks, this was a great benefit as it was during heavy snow and as you could imagine, quite cold. The Calendonian sleeper train also passed on a regular basis but it didn't disturb our peace and quiet but qas really lovely to see. The small town of Newtonmore served us well, we were within a short walking distance of local shops and pubs and we also took the train in preferance to the car - as it couldn't have been more convenient to use, being right on the doorstep. We would recommend the area and the property for a lovely holiday. The kind owner of the property also left a tasty chocolate cake for us, which was a sweet (no pun intended!) touch.
“To the North once more!”
This was our second visit and we've already booked a third visit as I write. This is a very comfortable base with excellent facilities which meet the demands of two adults and a teenage daughter! We find it very relaxing - comfy seats and woodburner plus excellant views. We have all made use of the sauna. There are good restaurants in the vicinity and we have also taken the train to Aviemore and also upto Inverness.
This was the perfect place to stay, a signal box by the railway. Fantastic views, watching the Rabbits and other wildlife. A good place to have a base to see other parts of Scotland. The accomadation was first class , the kitchen was a good size with all the tools you could ask for (except a thermomix tm31). We had a superb Week the weather was stunning. I can thoroughly recommend the wild Cat Trail (take a couple bottle of beers and remember the bottle opener) a very pleasent walk on a very sunny day. Please visit the museums well worth the effort. if you want to Stay in scotland this is the place
