Local Area Information

Tomich village was built in the nineteenth century to house workers at the large Guisachan Estate. It lies at the end of Strathglass which follows the river down to Beauly. 

West of Strathglass, three wooded glens lead up into the high remote mountains of Glen Affric, Glen Mullardoch and Strath Farrar. Part of the way through each is accessible by car and there are low and high level walks suitable for beginners and experienced hikers alike. Maps are available at the house to borrow.

From the house, you can walk through woodland to a spectacular high waterfall called Plodda Falls, pass by the ruins of the once-grand Guisachan House, walk over the hill into Glen Affric, or south to Glenurquhart, or to the neolithic cairn and RSPB reserve at Corrimony.

One of the attractions of Tomich is its tranquility. For a change of pace, the picturesque, bustling town of Beauly (from the French Beau Lieu) is a short drive (32KM) away. The Capital of the Highlands, Inverness is easily reachable by car (48KM), or the local bus service. Inverness has expanded rapidly in recent years and now offers all the amenities expected of a modern city. However, it has retained its charm with lots of specialist shops and restaurants.

The world-famous Loch Ness is a 20 min drive from Tomich, offering spectacular views whatever the weather. Drumnadrochit, a short walk from the loch's west bank, is home to all manner of attractions related to Loch Ness's most famous resident.
