THE MONARCH IS NO LONGER A HOTEL. SELF CATERING OR EXCLUSIVE USE ONLY Self Catering in a large house in the Cairngorms National Park, Highlands of Scotland could not be any easier than at The Monarch. It is the perfect self catering large holiday house venue whether its for a week, weekend or mid-week break. The Monarch was originally built in the Victorian period as a church manse and was converted into a hotel in the 1970's.  Unique to The Monarch is its very own church ruin dated 1851.  This large holiday house is situated near the picturesque village of Laggan by Newtonmore, close to Aviemore and within the stunning Cairngorms National Park where the hit TV series 'Monarch of the Glen' was filmed.  It makes the perfect location for exploring this iconic part of the highlands of Scotland.  The Monarch is ideally situated for stalking, skiing, walking, mountain walking, mountain biking, touring, adventuring, fishing, bird watching; just to name a few.  Being in the central Scottish highlands makes it an ideal base for day trips. Within the house is all that one would expect from a hotel.  A fully functioning yet user-friendly commercial kitchen with a domestic Range gas cooker, large lounge with a huge double-sided open fireplace, dining room, plus your very own bar (alcohol not supplied).
