Based in the village of Newtonmore, within the Cairngorm National Park, the Highlander Hotel offers guests a warm welcome.
The Highlander Hotel is based in the small village of Newtonmore, nestled in the famous Spey Valley amid the splendour of the Monadhliath and Grampian mountains. The village is a popular holiday destination and an ideal base for outdoor pursuits. Skiing and snowboarding are available in the winter months.
The hotel has 85 en suite bedrooms and family rooms, including guest bedrooms on the ground floor. The Highlander is renowned for its good food and true highland hospitality, and is well placed to explore much of the north of Scotland.
Over the years, the Highlander has earned an enviable reputation for good traditional Scottish food, fresh produce and friendly service.
The highlight for many visitors is the Highland Night, an evening of celebrating Scottish food and entertainment, where guests can taste haggis and join in popular traditional dances.
For a more relaxed atmosphere, guests can head to the lounge to sample one of the fine malt whiskies from renowned local distilleries.
For business functions, the hotel’s events team is on hand to make sure every conference, team building activity or meeting is a complete success. From stationery to scuba diving, the team can organise and set up whatever is needed for your event to be a memorable success.
With the Cairngorms National Park on the hotel’s doorstep, there are plenty of natural wonders to explore.
For grain lovers, the area boasts a number of famous distilleries – stay local and visit the Dalwhinnie or Tomatin distilleries, or spend a day following the Malt Whisky Trail, with a stop off at the Speyside Cooperage to learn about the famous Scottish golden nectar.
Mountain bikers will be in their element at Laggan Wolftrax, a 35km single track that’s well maintained and available all year round.
There are three golf courses within a 15 mile radius of the Highlander hotel.
The closest course to the hotel is Newtonmore Golf Club, at just over a mile away. The open course is mostly easy walking parkland following the natural contours of the riverbank and flood plain. There are plenty of challenges to inspire even the most practised of golfers.
