About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 bathroom in stunning rural location. Ideal for outdoor activities.

1 Tullochclury is a semi-detached house (owners next door) situated half a mile down a forestry track with walks, cycling and mountain biking from the front door!

This property is ideally placed for touring the Highlands with Inverness 12 minutes by car, and the Cairngorm National Park just minutes away.

The area is perfect for wildlife with many species of birds as well as red squirrels visiting the garden feeder. If you walk 300 yds along the track you come to the beautiful Moy Loch where you can have fun spotting otters and osprey competing for the trout.

The house is warm and cosy with central heating and a wood burning stove (wood provided) and so is comfortable any time of the year. There is a bathroom (with shower over the bath) as well as a wet room (shower only)

A short drive away Dolphins can be seen from the beach or there are Dolphin watching boat trips from Inverness.

Tomatin distillery is 3 miles away where tours of the distillery are well worth a visit.

Feb Half Term Holiday

A lovely warm and cosy cottage with everything you need to relax and enjoy the Scottish highlands. The owners are lovely people and make you immediately feel at home. We will return in future for another stay and would recommend this cottage to all.

A beautiful, comfortable house with all convenience.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, comfortable house with all convenience. Surrounded by nature. Nice neighbors, also owners of the house, always willing to help or advise. If you love unspoilt nature and a piece of history, this house is an excellent base for exploring Northern Scotland.

Beautiful rural house a short drive from many points of interest.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at this beautiful property. The house is pristine, well equipped, very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The owners, Jon and Diane, were very accommodating and close by if we needed anything but yet let us maintain our privacy. There is great space outside for children to play and it was lovely to watch the wildlife in the garden. During our stay we particularly enjoyed trying out new water sports in Aviemore and watching the Dolphins at Chanonry Point. Without reserve I would recommend this property. My only advice would be to find out about restaurants in advance and book early.

Perfect stay in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to stay at the property. The house was decorated with fine taste and it was fully equipped. There was even a tumble dryer for clothes. It brought me joy to look at well-thought-out details in the house. Also there was plenty of light and space inside.

From the living room's window we could see the green garden with squirrels and several birds (including a grouse with small ones). There is also a nice walk passing Loch Moy, which leaves directly from the house.

We felt being cared for and considered by our host Jon. He was most friendly and gave good advises about interesting places around.

I warmly recommend this property.

Beautiful, well equipped house in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Spent a brilliant week in mid February at Tullochclury. The cottage is very comfortable, tastefully decorated and in pristine condition. The kitchen is especially very well equipped. We had cold temperatures and a foot of snow eventually but the house was always very cosy, even without the wood burning stove. The ample supply of logs meant the stove was on every evening though, when we returned from our walk in the area. There were so many walks from the cottage in the forests or around Loch Moy. The area is of course famous for it's distilleries and the cottage is in prime position to visit them. Breakfast in the dining room/sun lounge, was accompanied by the resident red squirrels at the feeder in the garden - three at one stage.

Jon and Diane were friendly, helpful hosts, giving us advice on activities in the area, coffee shops to visit and generally making the best of our week in Tomatin. We will return to the cottage and would recommend it.

Great house to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We had a very restful time in this newly renovated cottage. Easy to find from the A9 it is halfway between Avimore and Inverness. The owners are next door but both properties are very private. The cottage is extremely comfortable and cozy. Central heating was on for arrival and plenty of wood for the burner. The owners are lovely and left a nice welcome package of wine, milk and shortbread! They even popped out for eggs for use. Kitchen was perfect, well appointed and has everything that you need.

Plenty of books, board games and maps of the local area to cozy in with or plan your walks. Due to the poor weather we were in more than out but Tomatin distillery is only 5 minutes away and Avimore around 25.

Comfortable beds with thick duvets great for the cold weather.

One slight downside (or upside depending on your view) is there is no phone reception at the cottage. Is case of emergency it could be a problem though it would be easy to go next door to the owners.
