Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Tomatin - MO-DHACHAIDH

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 Inverness, Loch Ness & Nairn

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.

Well equipped home from home of a high standard

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very comfortable with everything you could possibly need and is maintained to a very high standard - it felt like we had borrowed our aunt's house for a couple of weeks! We visited, Culloden, Findhorn and did some lovely walking, canoeing and cycling as well as spending time in Inverness. All in all a great holiday.

The position in the Cairngorm / North Scotland area could not be bettered , offering access to the most beautiful parts of Scotland & to the West.

The property itself is so well equipped, comfortable , quiet position, & tastefully decorated , & within very short distance to motorways/towns .

We had a very good holiday there & will be back.

Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

Returned after enjoying our stay here last year so much. Another excellent break in cosy, comfy house which is well appointed and exactly as description reads. Conservatory is so relaxing looking out to fields where we saw lambs frolicking, deer, red squirrels and many rabbits. Plenty of things to do in surrounding areas. Visited lovely old Church up the Glen in Dalrossie. Wall to wall sunshine all week which was an added bonus. Had a lovely meal at Macdonalds Country Golf club hotel in Aviemore. Hope for a return visit next year.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we were surprised with the welcome "goodies" and daily essentials left for us. We could not ask for a more homely and welcoming holiday rental. The cottage was not short of anything from the kitchen right through to the bedrooms. Anne and Dave made our Xmas even more special with the Xmas decorations that where put up, this meant alot for us as we had just flown in from overseas. We would definately stay at the cottage on our next return and will definately recommend this to all. I must compliment Anne on her attention to detail.

A Wonderful Sojourn in the Highlands

  • 5 of 5

Dear Anne and David

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - very cosy and comfortable - everything we needed and so much more. A real "home from home".

Sitting around the wood-burning stove was a special treat after coming in from a morning of sledging or snowman construction and the snow shovels and salt were all put to good use.

The bird feeder and table were also well used, and in addition to the usual garden birds, we were regularly visited by a spotted woodpecker and red squirrels (the first any of us have ever seen!).

Thank you again for a wonderful Highland holiday - all of us simply fell in love with Strathspey, the Cairngorms and Moray, and its friendly people.

Merry Christmas and wishing you a wonderful 2016 - we're already looking forward to our next visit.

Laurie, Cynthia and Arielle.

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.
