Something a bit special! This detached wooden property, newly built in 2004 in the form of a signal box, is adjacent to the station in Newtonmore. The accommodation is upside down with an open plan living area and a double bedroom and bathroom with sauna.

The property, newly built in 2004 in the form of a signal box, is adjacent to the station in the Badenoch & Strathspey village of Newtonmore. To make the most of the panoramic views towards the River Spey and Cairngorm Mountains, the accommodation is upside down, with a spacious, open plan living area on the first floor, while on the ground floor is a double bedroom and bathroom with sauna. Decorated to a high standard, this charming property is in an ideal location to explore the village (featured in Monarch of the Glen), and take advantage of the walking in the area. The cottage is 150 metres from a link into the Wildcat Trail - a 7km orbital walk and path network. The other attractions of the Cairngorms National Park are also within easy reach - an excellent base at any time of year!


Liked everything! The trains, the views and the property which had everything we needed. Just fantastic!

It was perfect!
Mrs Wiseman

This was our second time staying at the Signal Box. The whole place was spotless, with clear instructions for all appliances, there was nothing to fault at all. My husband enjoyed the sauna a few times. An excellent property which was well placed to explore the Cairngorms.
Mrs Simons

The Signal Box - where to start! It' s a beautifully appointed holiday home - just right for a couple. Cosy and comfortable - perfect to come home to on a cold day. The cottage owner Isla has prepared it as though it was her own home - full of lovely little touches that just make your stay special. From the well stocked kitchen ( every implement you could want) to the bathroom with fluffy towels and scented hand wash ( and underfloor heating) - she has considered everything. The cottage is well situated for keen walkers. Don't miss the the Wildcat walk and take advantage of all the hills nearby. Well situated for Pitlochry, Aviemore, Inverness. Thanks Isla - who else would spoil you with flowers and a chocolate cake on arrival.
