Tomich Holidays offers family & pet friendly self-catering holiday Cottages or Woodland Lodges, in spectacular Highland scenery overlooking Glen Affric and close to Loch Ness, with heated, indoor swimming pool. With over 140, 5 star reviews to help you choose from:

•Courtyard Cottages (2 bedrooms, sleeps 4-5)

•Woodland Lodges (3 bedrooms, sleeps 6)

Tomich Holidays is a family business providing a selection of twelve quality properties to suit your individual needs and makes an ideal holiday destination, with the indoor swimming pool, wi-fi hotspot, children’s play area, games room, drying room and bike store with bike hire.

Built above the conservation village of Tomich, in an exceptionally peaceful corner of the Scottish Highlands, Tomich Holidays is based at Guisachan Farm, which forms part of the historic Guisachan Estate, surrounded by native woodland. On the hills above lie several lochs, neighbouring the RSPB reserve at Corrimony. The natural beauty of the surrounding area is interwoven with woodland tracks to explore, hidden waterfalls, sparkling hill lochs, all amidst tranquillity where you can listen to the birds, revel in the abundant wildlife or stroll through the National Nature Reserve between the ancient Caledonian pine woods.

Plan your activities from Tomich, whether walking along the banks of Loch Ness, mountain biking for miles in any direction or touring the Western Isles. Tomich Holidays makes the perfect base for everything.

Guisachan is a working farm and depending upon the season you will see the never ending number of tasks that go into running a traditional Highland livestock farm. Pets are welcome.

We remain open throughout the year, so why not spend Christmas and New Year in one of our self-catering cottages or take a short break in the Highlands.

Our spacious stone-built courtyard cottages form part of the impressive Victorian farm steading with its magnificent Clock Tower. Some of the converted courtyard cottages offer panoramic views over rolling farmland, woodland and on towards Glen Affric and most offer en-suite power showers, providing everything you need for the perfect highland holiday.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello We had a marvellous time and Michael already wants to return for more time in Tomich. Service - excellent Home - very comfortable, well equipped and very roomy. Location - if you want to be away from the madding crowd, but with many attractions nearby, or simply want to take time off, then this is the place to be. Best - convenient pool and leisure facilities and easy access to Glen affric and Plodda and many more attractions. Staff are very relaxed, helpful and friendly. All helped by the most excellent weather throughout our stay. (Have made multiple trips to Tomich since the early '80s) David Halstead

Stalkers cottage, lovely as always

  • 5 of 5

The cottage as always was very comfortable, with all of the usual friendly and helpful people going about their business.

We have been holidaying at Tomich for many years now and we never tire of its absolute beauty.

It was found by chance many years ago but will never be forgotten, thanks for providing us with many wonderful holidays and hopefully many more. Keep up the good work in providing such a lovely place to holiday.

Best regards and Thanks

Anne, John, (Moss & Gill) the dogs.

See you all next May!

Lovely accommodation in a great location

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect for us. A great location to explore the wonderful Scottish countryside about us, and what a surprise the cottage was - it was immaculately clean (everything seemed like brand new) and was also extremely spacious. Also very good facilities with the play areas (internal and external) and swimming pool. However, bring you own towels, as these are not provided in the accomodation.

Serene location. Great accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived and were made very welcome by Christina who explained all we needed to know and assured us that she and other staff were always on hand with any queries. Great accommodation - as we were expecting it to be slightly shabby given that we had booked for our dogs to come too! We were delighted with the accommodation and the great walks and scenery - Glen affric is truly stunning! Excellent and spotless facilities too with the indoor pool, table tennis and pool table. We all enjoyed dining out at The Steading, The Slaters arms and Tomich Hotel. Also had a great time out on the Loch Ness Rib boat - what a way to see the many sights in and around the loch.

The walks around the area are superb for all abilities and our dogs had a ball! Particularly enjoyed Plodda Falls and Dog Falls walks.

We all had a lovely, peaceful break and wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend to friends/family.

Thank you so much and we look forward to seeing you again soon

Location

Coach House Cafe Tomich
"Real barista coffee, home-baking, paninis, soups"

From the Owner

Well the scenery is just out of this world and there are an abundance of traffic-free walking along forested lanes. Where else can you really visit these days with absolute peace and quiet? No rumbling roads in the background and nothing between Tomich and the West coast of Scotland some 30 miles away . What a great playground filled with rare orchids, dragonflies, golden eagles, roaring stags, badgers, red squirrels, balck grouse and starry, starry skies.

Enjoy the quiet beauty of the mountains in Glen Affric. Hire a bike and ride into the heart of the Glen Affric NNR, mountain spotting as you go. Walk along forest tracks and discover pristine waterfalls and sparkling lochs and hidden mountain glens. Guided trips available.
