    Suggested by the owner of the B & B where we were staying, we made the journey to the Highland Folk Museum and it was well worth it! The open-air museum has a range of historic buildings including: school house, post office, garage, church, etc but the recreated 'township' is a particularly enjoyable experience. Overseen by a member of staff in traditional dress, they provide the interesting and informative historical background to the settlement. Visitors can enter the township dwellings and truly experience what life was like for the inhabitants 200 years ago. Although we did not visit the cafe, refreshments are available (soup & sandwiches and drinks) and there is an opportunity to purchase confectionery from the ye olde sweet shop. There are also plenty of open spaces and picnic tables throughout the site to enjoy your own packed lunch and there is a play area for children. The car park charge is £2 and the entrance to the museum is a suggested donation of £11-12 and in my opinion, the visit is well worth the car park fee and the suggested donation which is contribution to the sustainability and development of the museum. I would recommend allowing 2-3 hours for a leisurely visit but visitors need to be aware that raincoats and umbrellas will be required if the weather is inclement and sunhats and suncream necessary if the weather is sunny and hot as, apart from the cafe and the various museum buildings, there is not shelter from the weather.

    Excellent and very informative. Made welcome and host enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
    Laid out so that you can follow the clan history up to the present day.
    Entry was free but happy to leave a donation and little shop reasonably priced.

    Amazing experience meeting and grooming the hairy coos. They were such sweethearts and some babies around too! Israel was a fantastic host and explained how the farm works and about all the animals. It's clear they're looked after well. We tried some local whiskeys and dried meats - all of which were delicious! Fabulous experience thank you :)

    The falls are pretty and the walk to the lost village is nice also the path is very wide for the quarry vehicles so it’s a little industrial. After the village the path runs long enough for you to feel committed and then peters to nothing leaving you in a barren boggy field.

    We kept the fences to our right and walked round until we had the hydro viaduct on our right and popped out at the new holiday homes. Go left up the big track and then I take you back to a signpost.

    Amazing views, and the course was an enjoyable experience. The staff were extremely friendly, and made our visit to Newtonmore complete. If you are ever up this way pop in and play the course you will enjoy it.

    Loch Imrich is a small loch just to the south of the A86 through Newtonmore Village. It is signed down a footpath from the main street or off Golf Course Road nearly opposite the Balavil Hotel.

    The small loch is surrounded by trees and was a kettle hole formed during the last Ice Age. There is a well marked path around the lake with lots of seats.

    It is a lovely spot to visit and drop out.

    This is the third time I've have received ski tuition from Rod. This time being in Braehead, Glasgow. Once again i traveled a long way especially to see Rod and once again it was more than worth the effort. Rod has an uncanny ability to teach you and relax you at the same time so that your skiing vastly improves and you learn a huge amount whilst enjoying yourself at the same time! I couldn't recommend him more highly and i will be returning next year.

    We had a great time making truffles. Good fun and lots of tasty treats and recipes to take home! Definitely recommend trying this, especially if the weather is poor.

    We were in Newtonmore for the weekend and popped in when we were out for a walk. They have a great selection of Harris Tweed items. I especially liked the coats
