    As always the Gyspy Caravans did not disappoint, this was my 3rd or 4th time there this year on the motorbikes. They are the best equipped huts I’ve ever stayed in (I’ve been round most of them!) lovely and cosy, good ground for parking up the bike, storage room for the luggage, and bike gear. 10/10 once again!
    It’s also close to Newtonmore so a 5 minute drive gets you to shops, cafes, and a petrol station! It’s just an all round great site!

    Disliked: 

    The lock on the door would not work for some reason on the red cabin, maybe just needs a spray of DW40? :)
    (Dads a locksmith, he said it!)

    Campsite is one of the best we’ve ever seen. Well manicured grass, exceptionally clean toilet and shower facilities, and location is perfect.

    Disliked: 

    The Gypsy caravans provide cinderblock area for small barbecues. This is another reason why we choose this area because being able to have a barbecue and cook our own food over a fire is getting harder and harder to find. We did have one of the owned caravans behind us ask us to put our bbq out because the smell was going in the caravan. We were polite with them but somehow this should be addressed because to us this is camping and we’d expect a bbq while camping.

Local attractions

Bring walking boots and outdoor gear, for there's loads to do in this locale.

As with most places in Scotland, golfing is well represented and there are several courses to pick from within a 30-mile radius: take your pick from Newtonmore, Kingussie, Boat of Garten, Grantown on Spey, Carrbridge (nine-hole) and the Spey Valley championship course in Aviemore.

The Wildcat team points out there are too many cycling routes in the area to mention, but particularly recommends riding in and around the Glen Truim, Etteridge and Phones estates and, further afield, around Loch Insh and on the Rothiemurchus and Alvie estates. Basecamp Mountain Bike at Laggan Wolftrax has over four miles of black routes and around three miles of beginners' trails to tackle.

For walking, several routes start in and around Newtonmore – ask Eck or Lynne for details – and you'll find miles and miles more around the Cairngorms, Gynack Walk, Corrieyarrick Pass and Badenoch Way, just to start you off.

And for angling, pick up a permit at outlets in Newtonmore or the surrounding villages and make your way to the Badenoch stretch of the Spey, 13 miles of river to try for brown trout, sea trout and occasional salmon.

Excellent indoor options in the area are the Highland Folk Museum and the Clan Macpherson Museum, both in Newtonmore, while a few local musts are the Cairngorm funicular railway (the highest funicular railway in Britain) with scenery to make your jaw drop; the ZSS Highland Wildlife Park six miles away at Kincraig, and Landmark Forest Adventure Park, landing you and the family a topping day out.

Must see

  • Caledonian Canal Heritage Centre (21.1 miles)
  • Blair Castle (21.1 miles)
  • Urquhart Castle (22.5 miles)
