The Braes of Glenlivet is located in the North East corner of the Cairngorms National Park in the Scottish Highlands. This is an area of particular natural beauty and rural charm. Only minutes from Tomintoul, the highest village in the Highlands, this is where green pasture meets the rolling heathery foothills of the Cairngorm Mountains creating a unique blend of farmland and upland scenery. With its panoramic views of this wonderful landscape, Newfield’s quiet and peaceful location is the ideal setting to help you relax and unwind. It also makes an excellent place to retreat to after exploring the wider park and surrounding countryside.
The area around The Braes is not only scenically stunning but is also steeped in fascinating history, teeming with wildlife and full of interesting places to visit and activities for the energetic and adventurous – not to mention it being at the heart of malt whisky-making country.
If you prefer a more leisurely pace then why not enjoy exploring the nearby mills, antique shops, transport museums, craft and gift shops and art galleries – many with their own cafes and tearooms – ideal for recharging your batteries and watching the world go by.
With so much to do, there truly is something for everyone. Yet you’ll also find peace, calmness and a slower pace of life that are rarely found these days and that make this quieter side of the Cairngorm National Park well worth a visit.
