Hello and welcome to Crubenbeg Country House B&B.

In our website, we aim to give you all the information that you need, not just about our Newtonmore Country Guest House but also about the many delights of the Newtonmore area, this outstanding part of the Highlands of Scotland and, of course, about the Cairngorms National Park.

If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and fancy a break in the Scottish Highlands then Crubenbeg Country House could be the perfect place to be. Situated in the Cairngorm National Park (UK’s largest National Park), with clean, fresh air and water, stunning landscapes and wildlife in abundance there is plenty to do and see.

But first, please allow us to introduce ourselves.

We are Dan and Lucy Thornton and we offer an informal, friendly, top-quality B&B - a home from home, in which you can relax and enjoy yourself whether you stay with us for a night or two, a short break or for longer luxury breaks. We offer bed and breakfast, of course, but also serve dinners, 7 days a week. In the summer months (July and August), with daylight most of the day, we find that guests often eat out at lunchtime or in the evening so we can provide a light supper on request. Of course, if you would still like to have one of our delicious dinners we can also provide this with prior notice. We are also fully licensed allowing you to have a small tipple, a wee dram or a glass of wine or local beer with dinner or just to relax.

With Newtonmore being the centre of Scotland our Bed and Breakfast is a very convenient base from which you can explore this spectacular area and enjoy the many outdoor activities on offer locally or within a short drive, returning in the evening to join your fellow guests for dinner or to simply relax in front of the lounge fire, nightcap in hand, reading, chatting or simply savouring the magnificent views.

It is also a great place for relaxing during the day if you wish, writing those postcards, catching up on that good book and taking the occasional stroll too. If you do not have your own transport we are happy to pick you up and drop you offer at either Newtonmore or Kinguisse train station.

So if you are searching for a quality Newtonmore B&B or the extra facilities of our Country Guest House in the Cairngorms, whether you're looking to plan your short break, to organise a pet-friendly holiday, to try one of our popular Special Interest Breaks or just to stay overnight en-route elsewhere, all the details that you need are right here, at your fingertips – please feel free to have a good look around.

  • Special Offer Breaks

    We’re often told that our prices offer great value for money – something that is important in this day & age. That said, as we arrive at the start of each month, we usually have a few gaps in the register, which we like to get filled.

    This is your chance to enjoy even better value, with one of our wee “package deals”. Take a look at what’s on offer over the next few weeks.

  • Special Interest Breaks

    Throughout the year, we set aside weekends for our very popular Special Interest Breaks. Topics we’ve covered include; Walking, Cookery, Fungi Hunting, painting and Photography. Take a look at what’s on offer this year and see if something takes your fancy.

  • Something Special Breaks

    Quite simply, a very Special Break for that “Someone Special” in your life – your partner, your parents, your sons or daughters or those special friends – when only the best will do. Take a look, you might even want to book one for yourself!!
