Cairngorms National Park
The Monarch is situated near a small village in the Cairngorm National Park with far reaching views. The A9 trunk road linking Perth and Inverness is only 8 miles away. Inverness and Edinburgh airports can be reached in about an hour and two hours respectively. There are regular day time and overnight sleeper services to London from Kingussie rail station (9 miles).
The property lies within the beautiful Cairngorms National Park and offers both an abundance of wildlife and a diversity of year round recreational and sporting facilities. Laggan (under 1 mile) is the closest village with a shop, Post Office services, doctor’s surgery and a primary school. The larger communities of Newtonmore (6 miles) and Kingussie (9 miles) provide a wider range of shopping, cafes, take aways, pubs and services.
The cities of Perth (66 miles) and Inverness (56 miles) are both prosperous regional centres with many national chain stores, supermarkets and recreational and leisure facilities. Supermarket delivery services are available to the door by Tesco and ASDA. There is skiing at Cairngorm Mountain near Aviemore and Ben Nevis and water sports on Loch Insh and Loch Morlich.
Excellent golf courses are located at Newtonmore and Kingussie, with several others within easy driving distance. Cycling on national cycle path networks, mountain biking at Wolftrax (2 miles) and hill walking are popular pastimes, as is fishing for salmon and trout on the many rivers and lochs nearby, including the renowned River Spey, just a few hundred yards from the property. Over recent years the stunning scenery of the area has become well known as the location of the television series “Monarch of the Glen”.
