3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 11
Newtonmore, Aviemore and the Cairngorms, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
The accommodation comprises 3 adjacent holiday cottages which can accommodate up to 11 in total (approx 4 in each). In addition, two of the cottages (Loft and Barn) have an interconnecting door. It works well for groups coming to join in the excellent New Year celebrations in this Highland village or for walking groups. We are popular with mountaineering groups as there is easy access to the mountains of the Cairngorms, Monadhliath and also Creag Meagaidh. We also have an efficient drying room for wet walking gear.

The main thing our guests comment on is the views of the Cairngorm mountains, which can be seen from the cottages and garden. We are located above the village so these can be enjoyed in peace and quiet. In the foreground are sheep and lambs, as we are in a crofting area, together with lapwings, curlews, oyster catchers and har...

Interaction with guests
We live on site and will generally be around the evening you arrive to greet you. The level of interaction is up to you! Most guests prefer their own space so we try not to impose ourselves, but we are on hand to answer any queries (or if we are away ourselves we provide phone and email contact numbers). This week I have provided information on local health support and local music sessions for instance! There are 3 cottages onsite so there is also the opportunity to chat with other holiday makers.

Stayed in Loft Cottage with 2 children and 2 dogs. The cottage is in a beautiful location, dog walking across the moors from the door, with wildlife on your doorstep and fabulous views. Ideal for those who love a peaceful country setting but easy access to the main roads. The cottage is small, suited the 3 of us and very...

I would recommend Croft Cottages to anybody who loves a peaceful relaxing holiday. The views are spectacular the accommodation is excellently equipped with every gadget you could possibly need. The owners are close by but not intrusive but they are there if you require any help and are very obliging. We rented all three cottages for a two week holiday...

Agree largely with the description by 'star7474', we stayed in the same cottage, our choice being defined by looking for somewhere in the area that would do the days we wanted (tuesday to sunday) within our budget. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and found the location great, looking for somewhere that was a bit out of the way, but not...

About the neighborhood
Newtonmore is a traditional highland village with a long and colourful history: visitors can learn more at the Highland folk museum or Clan Macpherson museums located in the village. There is also an annual highland games and clan gathering in August as well as weekly shinty matches. Some of you will have seen the area featured in the popular TV programme " Monarch of the Glen".<BR><BR>Today it depends on agriculture and tourism. The former can be enjoyed from the cottage in spring, when lambs skip in front of the cottage. Local restaurants serve good local produce to satisfy your appetite after a day spent hillwalking, mountain biking or skiing. Or you can pursue more artistic endeavours, such as photography, painting or learning how to make fused glass crafts at the... more
