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.

Why Gina Francis chose Drumnadrochit
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.
What makes this chalet unique
Historical Victorian Highland Estate.
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
