Description

This beautifully presented, first floor apartment is located in the centre of the lovely, rural village of Newtonmore, in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. The original Victorian building has been renovated to a very good standard, retaining many of the original features coupled with a contemporary living space, and is filled with natural light and views from the rear over the village towards the countryside. Inside the property are paintings by Michael Murphy, Simon Cook and Ann Vastano. Many of the paintings depict the local area and shinty (which is a cross between hockey and lacrosse), a Scottish game that the owner used to play. There is also a wall dedicated to shinty memorabilia.
Newtonmore is a popular village with good shops, restaurants, pubs and cafés, and makes the perfect base for exploring this beautiful part of the Scottish Highlands. The Cairngorms National Park area boasts a fantastic range of outdoor activities, including skiing and snowboarding, mountain and quad biking, climbing and hill walking, and a variety of water sports on nearby Loch Insh, Loch Morlich and the River Spey. Visit Cairngorm Mountain, or go to the Reindeer Centre near Glenmore, Landmark Forest Adventure Park in Carrbridge, or the Highland Wildlife Park at nearby Kingussie. Locally, enjoy a walk along the Newtonmore Wildcat Trail, a wonderfully varied, waymarked 6¼ mile orbital path encircling the village amidst stunning scenery. Newtonmore 18-hole golf course which is only a 2-minute walk from the apartment, is poised between the village and the River Spey, providing visitors with opportunities to enjoy some of the best golf and mountain scenery that the Scottish Highlands can offer. The Highland Folk Park, also within easy walking distance in the village of Newtonmore is unique, with its mile-long open air museum with township, used as a film location for the popular TV series ’Outlander’. Take a whisky tasting tour at nearby Dalwhinnie Distillery, the highest in Scotland. Take a day trip to Inverness and Loch Ness. Further afield, to west coast, visit Arisaig, Glenfinnan and Mallaig.
This apartment is a superb base and couldn’t be better located for exploring the many delights this area has to offer, with so much to see and do for all ages. Fishing is also available nearby. Shop and restaurant 50 yards, pub 100 yards.
This property can be booked together with The Bakehouse at Caman House (ref UK12320) to accommodate upto 6 guests.

About the local area

With a rare wildlife stronghold and a landscape shaped by the ice ages the Cairngorms National Park is full of scenic variety and has a treasure trove of natural wonders for you to enjoy.

Walk the Cairngorms hills which were formed when the last age covered this country. With landscapes characterized by high, rounded humps carved through deep and spectacular gorges the variety of geology in the area is truly amazing. It is also home to a fantastic array of rare wildlife. One quarter of Britain's 400 most rare and endangered wildlife species are protected within the park. If you are lucky you might spot such species as the golden eagle, otter, pine marten, osprey and Red kite sheltering in amongst the sub-Arctic and mountain plants.

The glens of Isla, Prosen, Clova and Mark are well known destinations for walkers as they are all easily accessible by car. They offer low level walks but also provide access to tougher long distance hikes into the south east section of the park. Make sure you take the funicular railway up nearly 1,200m to the summit of CairnGorm Mountain to enjoy spectacular views.

As well as the impressive uplands in the area the lochs and rivers in the region are home to some world class salmon fishing, wildlife and habitats making it yet another area not to be missed. The waters offer a variety of scenic delights including gorges, waterfalls and tranquil expanses of streams.

For woodland and forest walks visit Loch an Eilein on the Rothiemurchus Estate in the heart of Caledonian Pine Forest. Or if you are in search of a beach visit Loch Morlich where the sandy expanse proves popular with fisherman and water sports enthusiasts.

Many attractions are connected with the area's history or wildlife and are great places to learn more about the natural wonders that surround you. Whether you have a passion for wildlife, whisky or walking, or simply want to have fun, you will never be short of something new to experience in this wonderful area of The Cairngorms National Park.
