Activities Around Newtonmore

Einich at Newtonmore is ideally located to explore the wonders of the Cairngorms which offers a wealth of activities for visitors during their stay, too many usually for one visit! Here are just a few ideas together with some useful links to help you along the way when planning your visit.

Cycling

National Cycle Route 7 (Glasgow to Inverness) runs alongside the A9 and River Spey on cycle tracks and minor roads. On the Rothiemurchus Estate there is a purpose built mountain bike centre which has challenging features for the more adventurous.

Fishing

We are fortunate to be well located for well known rivers such as the Spey, Findhorn and the Avon whilst fishing is also available on many smaller tributaries and lochs in the area. The Badenoch Angling Association provides the opportunity for local fishing on the Spey and some lochs and their website provides details including where to buy permits.

Golf

Located on the doorstep of Einich is Newtomore Golf Course, which is 18 holes playing to 6,041 yards and is set in wonderful countryside running along the edge of the River Spey.

Further afield there are numerous other golf courses including Kingussie which offers moderately easy walking on upland terrain with a few short climbs on a couple of the holes.

Museums

The Highland Folk Museum located on the edge of Newtonmore looks at Highland life in the 1700’s, how houses were built, how they farmed and how they dressed. It offers the opportunity to look at collections on display, activities and interactive learning.

Located in the centre of Newtonmore the Clan Macpherson Museum is an ideal opportunity to discover more about this Highland Clan and its long history.
