Where you’ll be

Tomintoul, Scotland, United Kingdom

I love living here because of the peace & quiet, the beautiful views of the ever changing colours of the countryside and the amazing views of the stars at night. The village of Tomintoul is a “Dark skies” location making star gazing easy. The village has good shops, including the famous “Whisky Castle” with largest collection of malt whisky in Scotland, restaurants & cafés, and is only 10 - 15 min walk. A doctors surgery and paramedic and ambulanceare located in village.
Royal Deeside,Ballater & the Queen’s residence at Balmoral is a 30 min drive through beautiful scenery. Inverness & Loch Ness are 50 min drive.
Walking paths, mountain bike trails, golf courses, skiing in winter, fishing in the River Avon for salmon & sea trout are all available locally or within 30 min drive.
The house is located on the A939 road, part of the Castle Trail & Whisky trail. You can visit many historic castles & Whisky distilleries with excellent visitor centres. A 35 min drive to Rothes to visit the award winning design of the Macallan malt whisky visitor centre is recommended.
