Visiting Newtonmore

If you’re looking for a holiday or shorter break with lots to see and do, but without the hustle & bustle of busier places, Newtonmore is simply ideal.
Here you will find peace and quiet, a warm, personal welcome, open spaces, big skies and stunning views with good facilities available.

While you are here, you can walk up a peaceful Highland glen or one of Scotland’s Munros. You can mountain bike, horse-ride or carriage drive nearby. Newtonmore has its own wonderfully varied orbital path, The Wildcat Trail

There’s golf or fishing by the renowned River Spey.

You can also experience the way of life in a Highland village in the 18th century at the 4 Star Highland Folk Museum and find out more about clan history at the Clan Macpherson Museum right here.

Specially for families with children, we have a fascinating new attraction, The Wildcat Experience ~ Newtonmore, a ‘treasure hunt’ in which you set out to find as many painted models of the Scottish Wildcat as you can – they’re hidden in gardens, up trees and behind walls. Children love it and adults find they can get addicted, too!

Monarch of the Glen locations are all around.

The Highland Wildlife Park is just 6 miles away and Newtonmore makes an excellent place to stay if you want to explore a bit further into the Cairngorms National Park and beyond.

Newtonmore offers you an excellent selection of Scotland’s finest, friendliest places to stay and great places to sample Scotland’s fine food, excellent home cooking, locally brewed Real Ales or Speyside Highland Malts.

We have our own Highland Games and Scottish Pipe band and we’re home to Shinty, a game played all over Scotland.
