The Brewers Cottage - A little Victorian cottage in Tomich, Glen Affric

Cottage -

Tomich, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
Nestled on the edge of the Victorian conservation village of Tomich sits this pretty detached cottage built at the request of Lord Tweedmouth in 1865 to house the infamous illicit whisky distiller John Fraser. The adjacent Old Brewery now rebuilt is a private residence. The cottage setting is in a peaceful rural location with views over the surrounding countryside but is not isolated as it forms part of the conservation village of Tomich.
The model Victorian village of Tomich forms a part of the Victorian peer Lord Tweedmouths' Guisachan Estate, the large mansion house, which was his Highland estate home is now in ruins but the cottages in the village and the farm have remained largely unchanged since they were built. Victorian lamp posts line the quiet road through the village. The first golden retriever dog was bred in Tomich by Lo...

About the neighbourhood
Tomich is a small Victorian model conservation village built in the mid 1800’s by Lord Tweedmouth. The village adjoins Tweedmouths’ Highland estate Guisachan where the first golden retriever was bred. The mansion house Tweedmouths’ Highland Home is now a ruin, however the village of Tomich and the farm remains largely unchanged since Victorian times.
The Brewers Cottage sits on the approach to the village on the narrow road lined with Victorian lamp posts. The village has very limited amenities but does offer a very traditional Highland hotel with public bar and restaurant and The Coach House Cafe offers hot food and drink plus a small gift area and post office (both establishments are seasonal) Cannich 3 miles away offers a small grocery
Getting around
By far the best way to get about locally is on foot. Plodda Falls is a pleasant 7 mile round trip from the cottage. There is an abundance of walks from the cottage (details are supplied in the cottage). The forestry commission for Scotland offers numerous walks in and around Glen Affric.
A drive up any of the glens - Glen Affric, Glen Cannich or Glen Strathfarrer is breathtaking at any time of year.
Pony trekking at Cougie is a must at any time of year - Sasha and Iain offer varying treks to suit all abilities.
Cycle hire is available at Cannich camp site, however we do offer undercover lock up if you wish to bring your own cycle(s). The extensive forest tracks and trails offer mile upon mile of scenic non traffic cycling.
