What our visitors think about Ceilidh

“Property is of a size and so well equipped that its description and photographs on its website pay it scant justice. It is spotlessly clean, well furnished with quality fixtures and fittings. It is located in a beautiful and very quiet cul-de-sac. It is only a 5 minute walk from local pubs/hotels and restaurants. All in all one of the best self-catering properties we have stayed in.”

“We really enjoyed our stay in your lovely and very comfortable house. There is lots of space with some nice homely touches! We would recommend this house to others; it has been a great place for our weekend away.”

“Fabulous stay at Ceilidh house!! What a perfect home to base your stay in the Highlands. Ceilidh house is in a great and quiet location with off street parking for 3 cars. A 5 minute walk will take you into the centre of Newtonmore (be sure to keep an eye out for the wildcats) and a 20 minute drive takes you to Aviemore. Perfect!”

The Cairngorms National Park

With its mountains, pine-clad slopes, remote lochs and wide river valleys, the Cairngorms National Park is the largest National Park in Britain. It has much of the ancient Caledonian Forest and the high mountains, tundra, rocky passes, moorland and lochs host a huge variety of wildlife, including the Golden Eagle and Osprey.

The Park has attractions for visitors throughout the year, ranging from attractive towns and villages along the river valleys to walking, watersports, golf, mountain biking, climbing and skiing.
