The picturesque village of Newtonmore is nestled in Strathspey on the western side of the Cairngorm National Park. This area is popular with anglers and a hotspot for seasonal shooting, but walkers and cyclists will also have plenty to discover in the area around the village. Newtonmore is home to the Highland Folk Museum where you can learn more of the domestic and working lives of early highlanders. The village also boasts a fantastic unique experience called the Wildcat Experience. The visitor attraction is a community arts project – there are over 100 model wildcats, each individually decorated, hidden throughout the village. Find more than 50 and there may be a prize! Addictive fun that will entertain the whole family for days!


Inverness-shire is one of the largest county areas in Scotland. Located in the Highlands, it is predominantly mainland, but still has coastline to the west and the east, and includes the Outer Hebrides, Skye and a number of smaller Inner Hebridean Isles. The neighbouring historical county of Nairnshire is now commonly included withing the boundaries of Inverness-shire. The county has a diverse range of attractions and activities for all the family. For thrill seekers, and those in search of invigorating activities, there are two ski resorts, Cairngorm and Nevis Ski Centre, a number of activity centres and much in the way of walking and mountain biking can be found in the Highlands. For something traditionally Scottish why not pay Nessie a visit at Loch Ness? And what about a trip to stand in the shadow of the great Ben Nevis (or walk up it if you are so inclined!)? Visit the Calloden Battlefield, the site of the last battle on British soil, or take a train ride out to the west coast, over the Glenfinnan Viaduct, made famous by Harry Potter’s Hogwart's Express! The Outer Hebrides are a 200 island chain off the far north west of Scotland. Inhabited for over 6000 years, the islands have a huge historical heritage, and also contain Sites of Special Scientific Interest and National Nature Reserves. The Isle of Skye is typical of the Scottish Highlands; with 20 Munros on the island, there is much to entertain the avid walker! Inverness, the Capital of the Highlands is a bustling and thriving city and home to the estimable red sandstone Inverness Castle. Other towns include Fort William, located in the shadow of Ben Nevis, Kingussie on the Cairngorm National Park, and Nairn, an attractive seaside holiday spot on the Moray Firth.

North West and Skye

About the Area

The northern section of Scotland provides some of the most dramatic scenery that the country has to offer with stunning natural beauty. The options include travelling up the east coast, through the central region or via the western section. Choosing the east coast, from Inverness to John o’ Groats, is a distance of 120 miles. This takes in the “Black Isle” which has the Moray Firth and the Cromarty Firth on either side. Continuing on the A9 through Easter Ross, and the scenery starts to get more dramatic with the peak Ben Wyvis dominating the area. The towns that you pass through include Dornoch, Golspie, Brora and Helmsdale, with the historic cathedral at Dornoch a highlight. Beyond and you enter the sparsely populated region of Sutherland, where there are vast open spaces of moorland and heather, which meets the high cliffs to the east. There are two main towns in the northern section and they are Thurso and Wick. The north east section is the county of Caithness, and there are a lot of Norse influence in this area, having been the closest point of contact to Norway and Viking invasions. It is a favourite for tourists who like to go to John o’Groats, and it is historically known as the “start of Great Britain”, being one end of the longest distance between two inhabited points in the UK, Land's End being the other. John o' Groats is 876 miles (1409.78 km) away from Land's End in Cornwall. At the north coast is the Pentland Firth, which looks out to Orkney and a car ferry can be caught from Scrabster to Stromness. Both Orkney and Shetland have amazing historical sites and are well worth visiting. Travelling along the north coast takes you to Tongue, and it is here that the central route can be taken using the A836. This follows Loch Loyal, past Ben Loyal, Loch Naver and through Strath Vagastie and Strath Tiffy before reaching Lairg. The road is a single track road with passing places and as it is so scenic, there is no hurry. Travelling from the west coast, from the great glen of Scotland and the magnificence of Loch Ness, along the A87, this is a route that is well trodden by tourists, as this is the “road to the isles”. Along the way, it is lochs and glens, with Loch Lochy, Loch Garry, Loch Cluanie, the Five Sisters mountain range, before reaching Loch Duich and one of the most photographed and iconic castles in Scotland, Eilean Donan Castle. From here, the road leads to the Isle of Skye and access onto many of the other islands, or north. Travelling north, takes in a perennial favourite, Plockton, and continuing on you travel through Lochcarron, Kinlochewe, Ullapool and Scourie, with harbour villages of Lochinver and Kinlochbervie, well worth visiting. Once you get to the top of Scotland, you reach Durness and the most north westerly region which is Cape Wrath, and this section of Scotland is covered.


In the North Highlands and Skye, there are many attractions, but it is the geography that is the most appreciated. The line of the well known verse states “speed bonny boat, over the sea to Skye”; but nowadays, there is a bridge for the main west coast route onto the island. However, the West Highland Line links Mallaig railway station by rail to Fort William, Oban and Glasgow. This rail line, which is in use through the summer only, has been frequently voted the top rail journey in the world. Once on Skye, it is dominated by the range of mountains through the spine of the island which are the Cuillins, which is a haven for walkers. To the north near Uig, is Dunvegan Castle, the clan seat of the Macleods, which is open to the public. Whilst Skye can easily occupy a visitor for weeks, there is also access to many of the other islands, including Raasay, Uist and Harris. Back on the mainland, it continues to be all about lochs and glens. From the great glen and Loch Ness, travelling north, it a series of straths, glens, mountains and vast open spaces. In fact 40% of all the Munro’s, mountains that are above 3,000 feet in height, are in this region. Some of the more prominent ones include Ben Wyvis, Ben Hope and Ben More Assynt. The clan history of this area is fascinating and includes well known clans such as Mackay, Sinclair, Sutherland, Munro, Urquhart, Mackenzie, Fraser, Mackinnon and Macleod. On Skye, Dunvegan Castle is the clan seat and nearby can be found Macleod's Tables, which are two curious flat-topped hills that are prominent from many parts of Skye. The ascent to the top is a straightforward but rough moorland walk. Apart from travelling the region and enjoying its natural beauty, there are many castles to visit. The iconic Eilean Donan Castle is the most visited castle in this region and definitely worth seeing, even if you see nothing else in Scotland. Castle Urquhart at Loch Ness, Dunrobin Castle, Castle of Mey, Dornoch Cathedral and Dunvegan Castle and Castle Armadale on Skye are all worth visiting, along with the many historical sites on Orkney. Many signposts are written in both English and Gaelic, the Scottish language, and it is in this region where the language is kept alive. Shinty is the local sport, which to an outsider is the equivalent of hockey without rules, and if you have a chance to see a game, then it is an exciting fast paced game, which comes with crunching tackles. With regard to weather, it can be a mixed bag. Traditionally, in general the west is wetter than the east, but there are pockets that have micro climates. In the west, the gulf stream keeps the climate milder and there are a number of well known gardens, like Inverewe Gardens in the North West, which are world class. All-in-all, there are plenty of interesting attractions to visit in this region.

Things To Do 

Once you have seen the scenery and visited the castles, there are many interesting activities in this region. The food, especially the seafood is world renowned and if you can find a local restaurant or hotel that offers the seafood dish of the day, then it will be a worthwhile experience. The Kinloch Hotel and The Three chimneys, both on the Isle of Skye have excellent reputations, whilst the following 3 restaurants are also well known; 1, Fishmarket restaurant, Mallaig; 2, Captains Galley, Scrabster; 3, Plockton Shores, Plockton. Whilst this area is not the heartland of the whisky industry, there are a number of distilleries, which are well worth visiting. On the mainland they include Dalmore, Glenmorangie, Loch Ewe, Clynelish, Glen Ord and Pulteney. On Orkney there is Highland Park and on the Isle of Skye there is the Talkisker distillery. Visitor Centres, include the Falls of Shin, Assynt, Bright Water, Glengarry and Torridon. Of sporting interests, there are many rivers to fish for salmon, including the rivers Naver, Lochy, Helmsdale, Carron, Glass, Oykel and many more, not forgetting the numerous hill lochs for wild brown trout. Deep sea diving is a popular past-time, particularly off the west coast and places like Ullapool offer charter trips, where sea-fishing is readily available too. In this area, the golf courses are not as many, but the stand out golf courses are at Royal Dornoch and Skibo, though the 9-hole golf course at Durness, is a wonderful challenge and is the most north westerly golf course on mainland Scotland. Interestingly enough a young John Lennon used to holiday in the north west of Scotland and there is a memorial garden in his memory at Durness. Wildlife abounds in these more remote areas and there are opportunities to see otters, golden eagles and red deer in the wild. To see red kites and sea birds in more detail, the RSPB have a number of centres, including Tollie, Fairy Glen and Dunnet Head. For marine life, there is a dolphin and seal visitor centre at North Kessock or you can go on one of the many dolphin watch boats that monitor the Cromarty and Moray Firths. Chanonry Point being one of the most popular locations to spot the dolphins. For even more active activities, there are a number of outdoor centres and water specialists, to cater for any thrill seeking need, whether it be white water rafting or canyoning. For the surfer, the beach at Thurso East is regarded as Scotland’s prime surfing venue in the north of Scotland and has held major championships. For children, the beaches can be sandy and private havens, and there are excellent ones at Nigg, Whiteness, Dornoch, Dunnet Bay, Torrisdale Bay, Balnakiel Bay, Glenelg Bay and Barrisdale Bay. From the mountain biker to bird watcher, the Munro bagger to the garden enthusiast, there are many activities in the North of Scotland. The natural beauty is outstanding and those that make the time and effort to travel are well rewarded.

Highlands and Islands

This region takes in Inverness-shire, Ross-shire, Sutherland, Caithness and the islands include the Inner and Outer Hebrides as well as Orkney and the Shetland islands. For spectacular scenery the Highlands of Scotland provides some of the best, with a huge expanse of area full of mountains, lochs and glens full of romance, wildlife and scenic beauty. The heritage of this area includes Culloden, taking the ferry to the Isle of Skye or just taking in one of the many castles like Eilean Donan. There is also an immense range of wildlife to be found.

Our family had a great time at Cluny Mains. The house was excellent and met all our needs. Everything you might need has been thought of. A nice touch that milk, bread, jam and shortbread had been left for our arrival. Also supplies of tea, coffee and sugar. We topped this back up! Lots of room in the house and we did not feel as if we were living on top of each other. Lovely spacious kitchen with everything you could possibly need when cooking for lots of people. I'd never used an aga but it was very easy to use and kept the kitchen lovely and warm. The showers were great too and comfy beds. A big enclosed garden where the children could run around safely. I have no complaints at all about this property and would not hesitate to recommend it.

Service rating : Thank you for rating us excellent! We're delighted you found us helpful and friendly and it was a pleasure helping with your holiday plans.

Although the décor will probably need updating soon (as is the case with many highland properties) we found the house lovely and very comfortable. The showers were amazing and views stunning. It definitely exceeded our expectation!! We had a very warm welcome in the form of basic food provisions (milk, butter, bread, shortbread) and it really made a difference with how quickly we settled in. I would happily recommend this house to anyone and if the opportunity arises, go and stay again. Thanks very much!

Service rating : Many thanks for your feedback, sorry we couldn't give an immediate response. Unfortunately with last minute bookings they can take a lot of arranging however glad we could get there in the end and you would book with us again.

Just returned for a wonderful long weekend in Cluny Mains. None of us wanted to leave. The house was excellent. Plenty of room for all the family (5 adults, 5 children and one dog). Didn't need to take toys for the wee ones as plenty of books (new), lego etc. I did love the two sitting rooms and the log fire so one room was designated as a quiet room and I managed to have half an hour reading on my own before I was found!! The kitchen was perfect with an aga, great pots and utensils and a super table. The garden was perfect for all and the dog especially loved it. This was a very comfortable and relaxing house and we would love to go again, just sorry it is already booked for New Year.

Service rating : Many thanks for the fantastic feedback, great you found our service helpful and we would be delighted to help with your next family holiday!

Product : We agree, the owners have provided lots of entertainment and extra touches to make the stay special.

22nd August 2015 Excellent 

We were a family group of six, three adults & three children that arrived a little later than expected, we found the place and key with ease, straight away we felt at home basking in the heat from the gas Aga (always on you know) and were delighted to find basic essentials provided such as tea, coffee, milk, sugar butter, bread, shortbread biscuits, jam, bin liners and dishwasher tablets and what a kitchen enough prep area and utensils to run a small restaurant with all the crockery, glass ware and cutely you could wish for, oh yes that dishwasher was a great aid.

Two adults had a master bedroom each, the eldest had a twin room, the middle child shared with her 3 year old daughter & I slept downstairs as I wanted to snore without the worry of keeping folk awake plus I had my own toilet & bathroom adjacent to the kitchen, those upstairs had a choice of two bathrooms so everyone catered for.

Two beautiful lounges, one with a modern smart TV, Blu-Ray player etc. plus a collection of videos suitable for early age groups to adult choices and plus a few toys for the younger person, the other room had no TV which was nice being such a tranquil room and books abounded everywhere for the avid reader. All towels and linen provided plus a good utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer.

Basically the house exceeded my expectations on many levels, it was not perfect (thankfully) as I would not have felt comfortable with young ones in tow, it was close to perfection for the owners had thought of everything and their attention to detail should be commended.

We went in August with the promise of rain every day for seven days, in reality it stayed dry the whole time & the south experienced torrential rain, what a shame. Lots of attractions to be enjoyed via the car and worth noting that if you wanted very good cuisine you need to book the Letterbox restaurant in Newtonmore, a lovely 5 mile drive from the home, do book though, same applies to the local riding school, book first well in advance.

I would like to come back again, maybe with just adults to soak up the local area more, throw a few dinner parties maybe. It would be my first choice for a Christmas holiday, especially with snow. We are thinking about going back before the year is out but 100% sure we will return.

If you are looking for spacious accommodation in a tranquil setting with all mods and cons look no further.

7th January 2015 Great 

Lovely old house with plenty of space and well equipped kitchen.Just a point about the lack of hanging space in bunk room for four- there wasn't any. A couple of drawers under the bed.The double room had a "rail" but no wardrobe. Good holiday with lovely views.

Thanks for your feedback and hope your group had an enjoyable stay in this lovely country house. We do advise the bunk bed room is ideally suited to younger children as there is slightly limited storage space in this room, it’s great to hear the kitchen accommodated your group well over the stay!

We do offer various payments services which do not incur an additional charge, as the credit card option was used, this means a surcharge was applied by the 3rd party card provider.

Hope we can help again with your next holiday!

Cluny Mains is an ideal house for a holiday when travelling in a larger group. The house is set in lovely surroundings and offers comfortable lounges, spacious kitchen is very well equipt for cooking as well as BBQ.
