About the property

Recently built 4 bedroom House, sleeps 8.

Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac on the outskirts of Newtonmore in the Cairngorm National Park, this recently built 4 bedroom house sleeps 8 people comfortably. Furnished and decorated to a high standard, Ceilidh has 4 bedrooms - 1 double bed and 6 single beds. There is a large L-shaped lounge/diner with TV and a separate sitting room with stereo. The house has one large bathroom and two shower rooms. The kitchen is fully equipped with cooker, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and washing machine. A 10 minute stroll in one direction leads to the centre of this traditional highland village, with various shops, cafes and pubs, whilst a 10 minute stroll in the other direction takes you to the hills around the village, with stunning scenery.

In Newtonmore itself is the Clan Macpherson museum and the Highland Folk Museum, with its nostalgic recreations of houses and a schoolroom from a bygone era. A few miles away is the Highland Wildlife Park, the Laggan Wolftrak, Loch Ness and the skiing centre at Aviemore. There are plenty of opportunities in the area for walking, skiing, climbing, sailing and sightseeing.

suited us down to the ground

  • 5 of 5

just finished our annual week in scotland this year at Ceilidh. we have been doing this for twenty five years so have had lots of experiences with renting properties , this was one of the best .

Well equipt kitchen and every thing worked , WiFi was easy to access.

Newtonmore is quite quiet but can recommend eating at the Letterbox restaurant and the pub at the south end of town.

Samantha and the locals at the other pub made us very welcome.

The wild cat walk is worth a go .

good transport to Aviemore or Inverness via train service

we had a great week

Good location for exploring the area

  • 4 of 5

Nice house with plenty of indoor space. A few minutes walk from local amenities including pub and co-op.

The road it is on is very quiet but the garden is unfenced which could be an issue if you have small children.

Spacious accommodation and light and airy. Didn't have time to use all the amenities such as TV, videos, and extra sitting room maybe next time. Good position for all the things we wanted to do which included visiting relatives living nearby.

Great House

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic few days at the house celebrating New Year with friends. Plenty of walking on your doorstep. Mark responded quickly and was very helpful. House was exactly as advertised in fact probably nicer.

Newtonmore has a few cafes and bars but also really close to aviemore and all its attractions.

Beautiful house in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday in this beautiful house which was very well equipped and situated in an ideal location for lots of attractions nearby. The owner has been more than helpful from the day we booked this house. House is very well maintained and very clean. Would certainly recommend this property to others. We had a very nice meal in the Glen Hotel and found the local supermarket adequate for our week. The description of the house is very accurate.

Fabulous Stay at Ceilidh house!!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect home to base your stay in the highlands. Ceilidh house is in a great and quiet location with off street parking for 3 cars. A 5 minute walk will take you into the centre of Newtonmore (be sure to keep an eye out for the wildcats) and a 20minute drive takes you to Aviemore. Perfect! The house itself is tastefully decorated with lovely big bedrooms and 3 good sized bathrooms. Living room and dining room both comfortably fit 8 adults and the kitchen has everything you would need and expect. The utility room is a perfect store room for bikes (comfortably fits 3 adult sized bikes). All in all the perfect holiday home for an active Aviemore break. We had a fantastic weekend and will definitely be back in the future!

Thank you!!!
