Badenoch and Strathspey

Newtonmore is often referred to by its relationship with other things: it’s the village closest to the centre of Scotland, it marks the end (or beginning) of the Speyside way, and it is home to the much-loved Highland Folk Museum. These points of interest are undoubtedly worthy of your attention, but so too are the attractions of a village long eponymous with its famous shinty team.

As one of the gateways to Badenoch and Strathspey, the village is surrounded by vast landscapes that boast a rich cultural heritage and natural history. Travelling north through this country, the towns of Kingussie, Kincraig, Aviemore and Carrbridge mark the meandering route of the famous River Spey. Set against the backdrop of the mighty Cairngorms, these welcoming communities are renowned for numerous attractions in the great outdoors – both summer and winter.
