We had seen some leaflets about this place and had written it off as it didn't look that interesting on the literature. Luckily we did decide when driving through Kingussie and Newtonmore to stop and take a look and WOW what luck we did. This is almost like going to Beamish, albeit without the allure of the trams/buses and not on the same scale but nontheless has fantastic restored/re-built shops, homes, crofting buildings, a school (complete with teacher and a chance to write with a quill and ink) and much much more to see. Our kids were mesmerised by the 1700s township, the school, the chickens and a real sweet shop where they managed to spend a few pennies! a visit to her really is a must and considering the day before we had paid £55 for a group of 5 of us to get into Landmark, the free entry here was worth a generous donation to their funds, which is all they ask and no pressure to do so. There is a small cafe but you are encouraged to picnic here and there's lots of lovely spots including in the woods beside the curling pond where we saw red squirrels. THe only negative and I do understand why, you can't take your dog in although there's a wonderful dog park sheltered/shaded with kennels and water bowls.
