Holiday Cottage in Quiet Conservation Village
Tomich is a small and quiet highland village, beside Glen Affric, one of Scotland's greatest treasures and a National Nature Reserve. Glen Affric is one of the last ancient Caledonian Pine Forests and a very special place.
The small stone house was built in 1860 and is warm and very comfortable. It has two double bedrooms and one single, all upstairs. Downstairs there is a living room with a wood burning stove, a kitchen, a bathroom and a hall. It has central heating, wi-fi, TV, a laundry, games, books and maps.
If you are a hill walker, the high remote mountains of Affric, Strath Farrar and Mullardoch are all close. If you want to drive and explore, this is an excellent and restful base. If you want to climb, walk the Affric Kintail Way, ride a horse, ride a bike, kayak, watch the birds and the deer or explore a chambered cairn, you can. If you are very lucky, you might see a golden eagle, an elusive otter or an even more elusive wildcat. If you are looking for a quiet pace, you can just walk out of the door, wander up the village paths and discover a landscape that never fails to amaze. If the weather is in a very bad mood, you could just light the fire and choose a book.
Tomich is an hour from Inverness. It has a small hotel with a bar and a restaurant and a village post office. Cannich, 3 miles down the road, has an excellent general store and the Bog Cotton Cafe. Beauly with lots of good shops is 40mins away. Drumnadrochit and Loch Ness are 30mins. The Black Isle and the east coast are an hour away and Ullapool, Torridon and the North West Coat are a 2-3 hour drive.
