Overview

About the property

Mo-Dhachaidh (pronounced 'Mo-Gachy' and Gaelic for My Home) has been extensively renovated and modernised internally, providing a snug, modern, luxurious Cottage with all the requirements a family would need to have a relaxing holiday.

Easily accessible half a mile off the A9, you arrive at Mo-Dhachaidh via a private driveway into a large parking area to the rear of the house. You enter Mo-Dhachaidh into a classic, but modernised, Highland 'boot room', with drying area, space to hang outdoor gear and boots, washing machine, tumble dryer and an adjacent small downstairs toilet.

Immediately on the left from the boot room is the newly installed, fully fitted kitchen with breakfast bar seating with TV that opens out onto the dining area with table for 6 and comfortable fireside seating surrounding the traditional log burning stove - ideal for those dram drinking moments after a day in the mountains ...!

To the side of this social / family / open plan area is the beautiful conservatory with relaxed seating for 6/8, providing views of the surrounding area and access to the patio with table and chairs.

On the other side of the cottage there is a cosy, lounge, tastefully furnished with a comfortable double sofa bed, TV and fire.

Then head upstairs to the comfiest beds in the Highlands! Two lovely double bedrooms (one with a fold down single bed). The spacious bathroom has a HUGE, traditional bath with unlimited hot water, plus a separate shower stall.

The property, fully double glazed, is heated by Gas Central Heating, plus a wood burning stove and electric fire. It has 2 TV's (one with DVD player) and has Wi-Fi and Broadband.

The garden provides an extensive space for children to play safely and there is ample parking space.

About Anne McKerrow

I was born in Mo-Dhachaidh and brought up in Tomatin. Mo-Dhachaidh holds a special place in our hearts and we hope all our visitors will enjoy it as much as we do.

Why Anne McKerrow chose Tomatin

This has been my family home since 1938 when my grandfather re-built it from a ruin. The name Mo-Dhachaidh (pronounced Mo-Gachy) is gaelic for 'My Home'.

What makes this cottage unique

Mo-Dhachaidh, set in almost an acre of private grounds in the small village of Tomatin, is a lovely tradition Highland Cottage offering comfort, peace and tranquility to all its visitors. It offers easy access to both Inverness and the Highlands and to the Cairngorm National Park and Speyside.

We didn't want to leave, EVER!!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing home away from home! All the things one needs for a time away (even things we didn't think of were there!) A quick drive to Inverness for all that is there, close to the Cairngorns, Tomatin Distillery (1/2 mile). The best though was the coziness and warmth of the house and property! We are already talking of the return trip...from Texas!

Thanks again,

Petti, Kari, Julia and Sarah

The cottage is located perfectly, near the A9 but well secluded, inside it has everything you could want and more. Will certainly be going back for another very comfortable stay.

Car: recommended

This recently renovated cottage in the village of Tomatin lies midway between Inverness and Aviemore providing easy access to the Highlands and the Cairngorm National Park.

Mo-Dhachaidh is just a 10 minute walk away from the local country store and further up the road is the community sports centre which is open to visitors for a small fee.

There are many walks that take you quickly into the local hills and glens for as short or as long as you want. Two glen roads twist and turn their way up on either side of the Findhorn river.There are good chances of seeing wildlife of all kinds such as deer, red squirrels, red kites, osprey and buzzards on your travels. The other minor roads will take you into other nooks and crannies that follow the river through the Strathdearn district.

Tomatin Distillery has a visitor centre and you can see, hear and smell the production and finally taste the finished products for yourselves. These award winning whiskies are sold all over the world and are well worth knowing more about and appreciating their finished flavours.

To the south is the Cairngorm National Park with all kinds of winter and summer sports activities available to everyone. Further south near Kincraig is the Highland Wildlife Park and at Kingussie there is an interesting outdoor Highland Museum.

For those who want to explore further there are lots of choices such as Loch Ness, Culloden Battlefield, Royal Deeside, the North East coastal beaches, bays and ports, Ross and Cromarty, Wester Ross, Lochaber and perhaps glimpses of Sutherland and Caithness.
