Description

This spacious well-designed holiday home is situated down a quiet lane in the heart of Tomintoul, the highest village in the Highlands, within the stunning scenery of the Cairngorm National Park. It has private parking and a sitting-out area at the rear, and make a great base for a holiday at any time of the year. The light and airy interior is stylishly furnished and has an open plan area with patio doors leading into private garden area. It makes a great base for touring this wonderful area, full of mountains, rivers, forests and abundant wildlife. Founded by the Duke of Gordon in 1776, Tomintoul is situated on the line of the old military road built following the 1745 Jacobite rebellion. An ideal destination for walking, climbing, fishing and skiing (the Lecht and Cairngorm range are just a short drive), within an hour you can also be on the beautiful Moray Coast with its long sandy beaches. Wildlife safaris and clay pigeon shooting are available on the Glenlivet Estate and, of course, the area is in the heart of the Whisky Trail. For budding equestrian enthusiasts there is a good riding centre at the end of the lane while for the two wheeled variety try the Glenlivet mountain bike trail nearby. Tomintoul itself has a good selection of shops, galleries, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants all within a short walk of the properties including the world-renowned Whisky Castle, which offers a choice of over 500 single malts and the expertise of the owner’s vast knowledge. A great place to return to again and again. Shop and pub 150 yards, restaurant 200 yards. Cairn Daimh can be booked together with Glen Feshie (UK5473) to accommodate up to 10 guests.

About the local area

With a rare wildlife stronghold and a landscape shaped by the ice ages the Cairngorms National Park is full of scenic variety and has a treasure trove of natural wonders for you to enjoy.

Walk the Cairngorms hills which were formed when the last age covered this country. With landscapes characterized by high, rounded humps carved through deep and spectacular gorges the variety of geology in the area is truly amazing. It is also home to a fantastic array of rare wildlife. One quarter of Britain's 400 most rare and endangered wildlife species are protected within the park. If you are lucky you might spot such species as the golden eagle, otter, pine marten, osprey and Red kite sheltering in amongst the sub-Arctic and mountain plants.

The glens of Isla, Prosen, Clova and Mark are well known destinations for walkers as they are all easily accessible by car. They offer low level walks but also provide access to tougher long distance hikes into the south east section of the park. Make sure you take the funicular railway up nearly 1,200m to the summit of CairnGorm Mountain to enjoy spectacular views.

As well as the impressive uplands in the area the lochs and rivers in the region are home to some world class salmon fishing, wildlife and habitats making it yet another area not to be missed. The waters offer a variety of scenic delights including gorges, waterfalls and tranquil expanses of streams.

For woodland and forest walks visit Loch an Eilein on the Rothiemurchus Estate in the heart of Caledonian Pine Forest. Or if you are in search of a beach visit Loch Morlich where the sandy expanse proves popular with fisherman and water sports enthusiasts.

Many attractions are connected with the area's history or wildlife and are great places to learn more about the natural wonders that surround you. Whether you have a passion for wildlife, whisky or walking, or simply want to have fun, you will never be short of something new to experience in this wonderful area of The Cairngorms National Park.
