Why we've chosen Crubenbeg Highland Holiday Cottages

This mini-village (there’s even a red phone box) near Newtonmore offers access to the best of the west and north of the park. Eight self-catering cottages, each named for a local tree species – pine, larch, Douglas fir and so on – are decked out with clean lines and all cons, mod and otherwise (woodburning stoves are nearly ubiquitous), including well-equipped kitchens, satellite TV, CD players and wifi. There’s free fishing for brown trout in the Lochan, and opportunities for pony trekking, golfing and fine walking in three nearby ranges – the Cairngorms, the Monadliaths and Nevis range. The owners are keen on sustainable transport and offer to drop you off and pick you up for outdoor activities. The complex also holds the Gold standard for Green Tourism.
