The Moray region

The pretty, traditional village of Tomintoul is located in the North Eastern region of the Cairngorms National Park, on the noted Speyside Way. This is an area of stunning natural beauty which, while remaining unspoilt and rugged, offers an abundance of activities to suit all tastes.

Heading west from the village will take you out to the Lecht Ski centre and further on to Royal Deeside, Braemar and Balmoral before reaching Aberdeen. Heading North will take you past the Glenlivet Distillery and Ballindalloch Castle before heading deeper into malt whisky territory, including the Speyside Cooperage and the renown Glenfiddich Distillery.

The village itself lies in the Glenlivert Crown Estate, and there is an abundance of waymarked trails to suit all abilities which will allow you to explore this fantastic area. Rich in wildlife and history, you might like to discover the Whisky Smuggler's trail or the Heather priests seminary, Scalan College. horseriding, golf, fishing and shooting are all available locally. The famous winter resort of Aviemore is only 40 minutes away and the village Ranger Station and tourist information centre can provide details of Highland Games, agricultural shows, guided walks, whisky festivals and other activities.

Tomintoul

Visitors should enjoy some of the marked walks in order to appreciate the wealth of wildlife and traditional countyside. The Lecht offers winter and summer activites for families, while the Glenlivet and other distilleries offer tours in season (it is advisable to check on thier seasons, and there are age restrictions on some tours).

Beautiful Ballindalloch Castle, seat of the Macpherson-Grant family should not be missed (from Easter to October usually). In the summer, the area offers a wealth of Highland Games and shows, which are advertised locally. Speyside itself is home to various festivals of whisky, walking and music. For whisky lovers, a visit to the famous 'Whisky Castle' in Tomintoul will be thoroughly appreciated.

A trip to the Ranger Station or Tourist Info office in Tomintoul will help you plan your stay; locally available activities include horse-riding, golf, fishing , shooting, ski-ing in season as well as walking and wildlife watching.

“We would highly recommend this cottage home from home 10/10”

Reviewed 6 Feb 2014

We have stopped in several cottages in this area and this is one of the best well presented immaculately clean the owner was lovely. The village has two playgrounds so our 5 year old loves it, the village pub has great food and beer with a good atmosphere which is great when you have been walking/skiing in the day. The highlands are truly stunning well worth a visit. Thanks again M Lane
