After some days of salmon fishing, my wife and I were on the way to Aberdeen, to reach the flight next day for going home. We spotted this guesthouse from the road, and stopped by to ask if they had a free room. Oh yeah, they had a big room with very nice views and a big bathroom for us. We were cold after a day's fishing in the rain, and the owner returned with a plaid for my wife, hot tea, biscuits and an extra electric oven. Our wading gear was taken away for drying, and we were given a short history about the house. It seems it was used for hopsing some of the actors when filming "the Monarch of the Glen". We were given advice for a local pub after heating up, and slept like logs during the night. Next morning we had a good, scottish breakfast cooked to our liking. And before leaving, we picked up some advices for things to see and visit on our way to Aberdeen. We've stayed on many B&B's and guest-houses on the british isles during the years, but this is one of the best. It's also close to the Cairngorms, Grampian Mountains and the Malt Whisky trail.

This property is wonderfully kept, exceptionally clean and tidy and and well looked after by considerate and welcoming owners. Rooms were spacious with good layout and extras beyond many hotels in scotland. If this place was on the tourist route in any other country it would be billed as a 'boutique' hotel. Breakfasts are sumptuous and healthy and served in a relaxing breakfast room with views of fantastic scenary. I would highly recommend Coig na Shee to anyone visiting the area.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this sensational bed and breakfast in Scotland. Nothing was too much trouble for Marion and Graeme including a celebration for my husband's birthday! Our room was beautifully appointed and the view from the bath a delight! The atmosphere is relaxing and there are pubs galore in Newtonmore only a few minutes walk away. The delights of the Spey, including the famous whisky trail, Loch Ness and Inverness are all only a short drive. We went sightseeing each day after a generous breakfast and came home in the evening to a warm welcome. Maps and tourist information were on hand at Coig na Shee and Marion and Graeme were very helpful with advice. We hope to return one day and thank Marion and Graeme for making the first part of our holiday in Scotland so memorable.

This was our 2nd visit during 2005 (April & August) and was definitely the best B & B we have ever stayed in. We were warmly welcomed and made to feel at home immediately.

The house was surperb, bedrooms tastefully decorated and the scenery from the bedrooms breathtaking, especially when snow is on the mountains.

Home made biscuits on arrival were delicious and breakfast leisurely and plentiful.

It is ideally situated to explore the Grampian mountains and Highlands area. It is possible to have a leisurely drive to John O'Groats and back in a day (we have done this).

The Capercaillie Restaurant in Newtownmore is definately worth a visit.

Have noticed that this B & B is now in the process of being sold.
Pity as Shirlie & Chris are wonderful people. Hope the new owners continue this as a B & B and that the standards do not drop.

Stayed here last night and it was superb. It you want proper Scottish hospitality, this is the place to come to. The owner was friendly, showed us to the wonderful Larches room. It was a very spacious, beautifully decorated room that had a welcome tray waiting for us, with homemade biscuits, shortbread, freshly ground coffee, various teas and there was a tiny little fridge with a jug of milk in it. There was also fresh fruit and various other little extras.
The room, bedding and en-suite were absolutely spotless. There was Sky TV., Cd and Dvd player. We had a cosy settee and big armchair. What more could you want? It is set in an ideal location, within walking distance to the main street.
The breakfast is between 8.00 and 9.00am. Lovely choice of freshly cooked food and various healthy options as well as the traditional.
This has to be one of the best places we have stayed and we wished we could have stayed longer. Would recommend this to anyone. Fabulous.........
