Immerse yourself in the charm of the Scottish Highlands, setting your sights on the quintessential town of Tomatin, best known for whisky, salmon fishing and breathtaking scenery.

Roaring fires add to the feeling of grandeur, providing plenty of cosy nooks to unwind with a glass of something delicious. The elegant drawing room is a delight for the senses, with wooden arched windows, ornate cornicing and irresistible sofas to sprawl on in front of the woodburner. The kitchen is finished with a surprisingly contemporary flair and equipped with everything you need to prepare a feast, best enjoyed in the grand dining room. Each bedroom is thoughtfully furnished for a restful night’s sleep, decorated to complement the character of the house. At the top of the house the bedrooms have stunning views as far as the eye can see, including a quirky turret room with a handy washbasin.
