Netherwood House, self catering in the Highlands…
A very warm Highland welcome to Netherwood.
Open the porch door and take off your boots - you're just back from a lovely fifty minute walk up to the car park, from where you can see beautiful Glen Banchor, opening out before you - beckoning you to explore further, this stunning expanse of hinterland.
Maybe you've climbed one of the three local Munros in the Glen, spotting red deer, mountain hare and a variety of birds of prey including the occasional Golden Eagle. Or your group has thoroughly enjoyed the seven-mile lower level Wildcat Trail around the village.
If it's summer time, you'll maybe be setting up the barbeque, having chosen some tasty steaks, sausages, burgers and chicken thighs from the local butcher in Kingussie or on your journey north at the House of Bruar. You deserve your bbq, because you’ve cycled up into Glentruim, picnicked by and subsequently swum in the river – invigorating indeed, even in the summer!
Or coming into autumn, you’ve picked wild Chanterelle mushrooms from woodland up behind nearby Craggan. You’ve maybe cycled up behind Kingussie and returned home via the estate track or enjoyed a day trip up to see the abundance of wildlife, including the renowned polar bear, ‘Hamish’, at the Highland Wildlife Park, a mere 8 miles away.
Or in winter you’ve returned from snowboarding and skiing on the slopes at the Cairngorm Mountain ski resort. After a refreshing shower, come into the front room and sit down and relax – the fire is blazing away already!
This attractive, family and dog friendly house offers VisitScotland 4-Star self-catering accommodation, and holds a Walkers and Cyclists Welcome Award.
Situated on the outskirts of the village of Newtonmore, Strathspey on a quiet road leading up into beautiful Glen Banchor – one of Speyside’s secret treasures – the house is set in a woodland garden with a barbecue area and swing. Well-equipped, spacious, comfortable and warm, Netherwood provides a delightful combination of up-to-date facilities and the Highland charm of a substantial stone, lodge-style house.
Newtonmore offers the visitor a wide range of activities within the village lying at the southern end of the Spey Valley in the Cairngorms National Park. Newtonmore is at the heart of the Scottish Highlands and is the original Geographical Centre of Scotland making it the ideal place for long or short breaks or to explore the surrounding area much of which has been used in filming, amongst others, ‘Monarch of the Glen’.
