Traveller from Glasgow, GB Date of stay 29 Sep 2023 Location Cleanliness Facilities Service / Staff 4 - Good 5 - Excellent 5 - Excellent 4 - Good Would you recommend this property to other travellers? Yes Comments about this property The house is beautifully presented and everything was very clean. Much bigger inside than it looks from the outside! We had a wonderful stay, the house was perfect for our needs and we got lucky with the weather. Tips for other travellers If you like golf, Newtonmore is a beautiful wee course which is always in excellent condition. The hill behind the house, Creag Dhubh, is a lovely climb with wonderful views in fine weather. For a less strenuous walk, try the Wildcat Trail or part of it - it is easily broken up into short sections. For a more strenuous walk, try A'' Chailleach, one of the munros within walking distance of Newtonmore. The Highland Folk Museum is a fantastic look back at historical life in the Highlands

Traveller from Castletown, IM Date of stay 21 Oct 2023 Location Cleanliness Facilities Service / Staff 5 - Excellent 5 - Excellent 5 - Excellent 5 - Excellent Would you recommend this property to other travellers? Yes Comments about this property Fantastic wee home from home, house has everything you could need! Area is great, lots of good places to eat and drink, perfect for days out in any direction and loads of good walks, even just a walk down the main road in the evening is lovely. Tips for other travellers Good solid food in the chefs just next door, good food in the Glen hotel along the road, but check opening times and book a table! We had a couple of games of pool in the Braeraich which will start food soon and should be good there too! Lovely coffee in the wild flower (I think) along the street! We had days out to Elgin, Aberfeldy and Inverness all worth visiting just for the drive!
