Newtonmore is a well-established village nestling in the upper reached of the Spey valley within the Cairngorms National Park.
This town is particularly popular with anglers and grouse hunters, and lies 12 mile south of Aviemore close to Kingussie with whom it enjoys a fierce rivalry on the shinty pitch. For those looking for more active pursuits, there is a range of cycle and walking trails to explore and hunting, shooting and fishing is also available. The area is perfect for pony-trekking and the sport originated in Newtonmore in 1952 as a way of using the strong and sure-footed Highland ponies outside the stalking season.
Attractions include the excellent Highland Folk Museum and for those hunting their Highland ancestry, the Clan MacPherson Museum. Outdoor highlights include the Wild Cat Trail and Wild Cat Experience, nearby Munros, Calder Falls, a great golf course, fishing on the Spey and the beautiful Glen Banchor.
