Nestling between the Monadhliath and Cairngorm mountain ranges lies the attractive village of Newtonmore in the Scottish Highlands. Now part of the new Cairngorms National Park, this area of outstanding beauty has an abundance of lochs and mountains and an ever changing panorama. The village of Newtonmore is situated at the junction of the A9, the main road from central Scotland, and the A86 to the west and is an ideal central location for anyone wishing to tour this majestic country. One of the areas most beautiful walks, "The Wild Cat Trail", is now fully way-marked, and can be joined at a point just 200m from Croft Holiday's accommodation. This lovely trail is suitable for all standards and ages, and the 10 Km can, if you wish, be undertaken in six easy sections. The whole area is great for outdoor sports with many lovely walks, climbs, bike rides and ski runs. The Cottages have purpose built drying rooms, washing machines and lockable bike and ski storage. Information is supplied on routes for walks and bike rides. Croft Holidays is under the personal management of Ian Bradbury and his wife Anne who live on a croft in Strone and enjoy meeting with their guests. Ian and Anne are keen mountain bikers, walkers and skiers and will be happy to advise on routes. Anne is also an artist and plans to run specialised weekend courses in the Autumn. The crofts in Strone have suckler cow herds and hill sheep flocks which roam to over 3000 feet in the Monadhliaths behind the cottages.
