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.

17th November 2018 Excellent 

Amazing and spacious house with everything we needed for a work weekend away. The host was brilliant and phoned to see if we knew everything we needed to before travelling.

Service rating : So pleased to hear your 'team building' weekend went well and we look forward to helping you with your next event!

Product : Glad to hear you liked the house. We think the owner is brilliant too! She's always there offering help when needed.

10th October 2018 Great 

For the 15 members of the Snifters Whisky Society, this was the perfect location and accomodation. A real Shooting Lodge with a Tasting room, a relaxing room, a room with a poolbiljart, great kitchen and a lot of bathrooms.

The only (minor) complaint is that the showers did surprise you with to hot or to cold water...

Service rating : Thanks for the lovely feedback. We try our best to pre-empt customer needs so it was nice to hear you found us helpful.
Product : Thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay. Yes, the water pressure can be problematic when everyone's trying to use the facilities at once and the owner is looking into affordable solutions to this problem. I'm glad to hear it didn't detract from your overall enjoyment of the property and its location.

11th January 2018 Excellent 

The place was huge. We got a full tour by the owners kids. Had 9 blokes in there 30's in stitches laughing. Left us to it then but always on hand if needed. Facilities were fantastic. A home away from home, apart from the stunning woodland, snow and mountains that surrounded it. A fantatic hill walk from behind the house that the owner recommended and a 5 minute drive to Dalwhinnie Distillery. Also theres stags and deer literally everywhere. Didnt want to go home

Service rating : We do like to make our guests lives a little easier if we can, it leaves more room for making more happy memories - so we’re pleased to hear you found our service fantastic! Thanks very much for sending us your thoughts.

Product : This review will continue to make people smile we can assure you, it’s so lovely to hear you had a great time and were well looked after. It sounds like your holiday was topped off by the appearance of some of the local residents as well which is always a bonus!

Please let us know if we can be of assistance in the future, we’d love to help and we also offer a loyalty discount to our returning Scotts guests so don’t forget to mention this next time you book with us.

Thanks again for your review.

1st June 2017 Great 

Generally the property was ideal for our group of 7 couples gathered for a re-union. The large dining room and comfortable sitting room were much appreciated. The only negative was the performance of the showers. It was often not possible to control the temperature of one shower because the water pressure was being affected by use of another shower. Apparently the problem relates to the water supply not working from a main but from a header tank.

Service rating : Thank you for your comments, we are pleased you found the service helpful and friendly! 

Product : Great to hear that you found the house suited your group of 14 for the re-union, having visited myself I totally agree the sitting room and dining area is very comfortable for large groups. 

Often this is one of the quirks of a larger property, however we will certainly pass your comments on for review, regarding the water pressure.

Great that you're already considering options for 2018 with us, we hope we may be able to help with another memorable trip.

16th August 2016 Great 

Lovely period house, slightly let down by a few too many niggles.

The setting is lovely, with handy walks from the doorstep, and all the attractions of Speyside right there - Highland Wildlife park, Landmark centre, Highland Folk Museum, distilleries, Shinty matches on Saturdays, and many more. It's a great location.

The house has a charming character, with high ceilings, quirky rooms and some lovely period furniture. The kitchen is well equipped, and there is plenty of table space for pretty much the whole household to eat in there, which is just as well as it's a long walk to the dining room! The sitting room is snug, and the playroom with pool table handy for whiling away rainy days. The bedrooms are all fairly spacious, and there are plenty of bathrooms to go with them, but that's where it starts to go wrong. The plumbing just can't cope with all the guests the house can hold, so only one of the many electric showers can be used at once. There are baths aplenty too, but when you are hurrying to all get out in the morning it's a bit of a drag. And it gives you more time to contemplate the peaty water - it's like bathing in tea! The upside is that without lots of showers, you don't notice the lack of extractor fans so much.

The lighting is also a bit patchy, with only about 50% of the light fittings actually sporting working bulbs, though the property manager (who lives just next door) was quick to fix the ones we pointed out. If I was to be really picky I'd also ask for an extractor over the hob, and a second dish-washer in the kitchen. The whole place could do with a lick of paint, too, and new windows - it all feels a bit tired.

All in all, there's lots of potential, but it's not quite there. We visited for a family double-birthday in the summer, and it served very well for 18 of us who were mostly out on trips. We enjoyed our stay, but had we been visiting in the winter, or with poor weather requiring more time in the house, the niggles might well have turned it from 3 stars to 2.

Service rating : Thanks so much for the great review for our service, glad that we were able to help with your family get together. To access your online account, the log in details are provided on your holiday paperwork but we are also very happy to help with any queries or accept payments over the phone if more convenient.

After your booking was made the owner of the lodge did advise us of a change to their availability so the property was withdrawn from our online portfolio, sorry if this caused any confusion and we hope the info we provided was helpful with making your plans for the big trip!

Product : Many thanks for taking the time to get in touch with your feedback for the stay – much appreciated and our property team have forwarded on to the owner of the lodge for review.

As you say, due to the age of this Edwardian building there are a few quirks, its lovely to hear that overall you found the location perfect for your trip and the lodge well equipped & spacious. Glad that the owner of the property was also able to help swiftly with replacing the light bulbs.

1st February 2016 Excellent 

Amazing lodge!!! Would def recommend a visit, perfect place to be. Will def use again

Service rating : Thank you for the great feedback, glad to hear you found our service helpful and we would be delighted to help with any future holiday plans!
Product : Sounds like the lodge was all you hoped for, and it was the perfect Highland retreat for your trip!

12th January 2015 Great 

We had a lovely family Christmas at Crubenmore Lodge. There were a few hiccups with sky tv and the oven but Cheryl went to great lengths to fix these problems to ensure our stay was good. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking equipment and had a great selection of serving dishes. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning. Thank you Cheryl

Thank you for our feedback. So pleased to hear that your family enjoyed their Christmas break at this highland lodge. Great to hear that the owners were on hand to help with the TV and oven for you, it sounds like was resolved quickly and you had am enjoyable and comfortable stay.

We hope we can be of help again in the future. By all means please dont hesitate to get in touch with us.

10th December 2014 Great 

Perfect for us. Bit chilly in the kitchen and wee dining room but rest of the house was toasty. Could maybe do with firewood being seasoned as stove struggled to get going and green wood not good for stove or chimney. Care taker could not have been more helpful. Great location if party members coming from different directions.

9th October 2014 Great 

lodge was generally clean and well stocked ,however the lodge itself is quite tired ,window in my room was held together by gaffer tape ,not good ,but in fairness it was the original glass...,my room was marginally cold and the general feeling of th enlace was draughty.In saying all this it did fit the bill

Thanks for your feedback, it sounds like your group had a good time. We have spoken with the owner who offers her sincere apologies for the temporary window repair, unfortunately the glass was cracked by a bird strike prior to your arrival and they were awaiting a specialist repairer to visit.

They welcome feedback and are on site to help with any issues such as heating etc clients may have, it is their first season at the lodge and they have an ongoing plan of improvements in place and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Scotts Castle Holidays

30th July 2014 Great 

The Lodge itself was the perfect size for our mixed family group. However, aspects of the Lodge were tired and better cooking equipment is definitely required I.e. The catch on the oven door was broken, the kettle leaked when pouring water from it, fridges were not large enough to cater for 14.

It could also do with some additional outside seating, as there was only enough room for 8 people to sit at one time.

Locks on bathroom doors would also be a great addition.

It would have been to have more than one key to the property - although we didn't ask for more - so possibly this could have been easily sorted.

Instructions for the emptying of bins would have been good. Recycling facilities were excellent.

Mrs Irons and her family were very friendly and welcoming.

Thank you for your feedback. The owners welcome all suggestions regarding improvements, including these that they have now read, and as this is their first season they are working their way to making improvements. We are glad to hear that the house fitted your requirements and that the service at Scotts Castle Holidays was to your liking, and look forward to welcomeing you back in the future.

Warm,comfortable, brilliant highland weather! perhaps a little short of cooking equipment for a large grown up party which likes cooking and a shame the Aga was not working.But it is a great house for a walking holiday. Amongst the best of the 30 or so of the large Easter holiday houses we have taken over the years.

So pleased you found our service helpful and we would be delighted to assist again in the future - thank you for leaving feedback!

It's also brilliant to hear that you had a great time at the property and had a comfortable stay, we will of course pass your comments onto the owner.

We look forward to hearing from you again soon.
