Railway Signal Box in Newtonmore - Sleeps 2

Definately something different! Converted 2004 with upside down accommodation beside the station. Sleeps 2 in comfort, four at a pinch. Includes Sauna. For Railway Lovers!

The Signal Box which was actually newly built in 2004 in the form of a signal box, is absolutely adjacent to the station in the Highland village of Newtonmore. Despite its proximity to the line (which is not busy) customers love the ambience of the place and all the little touches!

Everything was provided and well catered for, and all instructions were available for all the appliances etc. Loved the views and the wood burning stove.

Great location surrounded by wonderful countryside. Located in a quiet area away from the hustle and bustle. A very good place to chill and recharge the batteries.

This was our second time staying at the Signal Box. The whole place was spotless, with clear instructions for all appliances, there was nothing to fault at all. My husband enjoyed the sauna a few times. An excellent property which was well placed to explore the Cairngorms.
