Live like a local!
A wonderful old family home within the Cairngorm National Park this is the perfect spot for peace in nature, fishing, Castles & Whisky, hill-walking, local festivities/history (Forbes in particular) and a really good night's sleep.

Enjoy the house itself or the 12 acres of mostly woodlands at our doorstep. Climb to the top of Ben Newe (right out the back door!)

Within half an hour of several golf courses and 20 minutes from the Lecht Ski Centre.

Enjoy a Newe Experience!

The space
House of Newe is over 400 years old and was built by my husband's ancestors. It is a well-loved space by all who visit it! If we have time we are happy to tell you a bit of the history of the house itself and the Forbes family who built it.

Where you’ll be

Newe, Scotland, United Kingdom

We are tucked away from the busy world, which can mean a little more planning-but it is worth it! Our local grocery shop, the Spar at Bellabeg, is only a few minute drive west of us and is well stocked for a "wee" shop. The local pub has just shut (April 2018) as the new owners are doing renovations. In the meanwhile, there will be use of kitchen facilities (upon arrangement preferred) and a list of great restaurants nearby will be provided (nearby means approximately 20 min drive).
You don't have to drive anywhere to walk in the wilderness! Just behind the house is Ben Newe. This hill has lovely wooded walks which end up at beautiful open vistas at the top. Extra clothing/boots may be able to be provided, if needed.

A west-coast American who happily calls Scotland home. When not travelling myself, I would like to welcome you into our very special ancestral family home. This area is full of history (standing stones, castles, Clan Forbes)/nature (Ben Newe, Cairngorms National Park, Lecht Ski Centre) and wonderful local events, especially music!
