Newtonmore offers the visitor a wide range of activities within the village lying at the southern end of the Spey Valley in the Cairngorms National Park. Newtonmore is at the heart of the Scottish Highlands and is the original Geographical Centre of Scotland making it the ideal place for long or short breaks or to explore the surrounding area much of which has also been used in the filming of Monarch of the Glen.

The Hotel (Main's Care Home)

'The Hotel' Newtonmore (now Main's Care Home) was in fact one of several hotels built around the same time.

The oldest house in Newtonmore

Craigellachie House, at the south end of the village, next to Main's Hotel, is reckoned to be the oldest house still in existence in Newtonmore.

Craig Mhor Hotel

This photograph of the Craig Mhor Hotel, in 1904, at first glance, shows an astonishing similarity with the Hotel today, with the same verandah, the same bay windows - very much the same look.
