Nestled on the edge of the Victorian conservation village of Tomich sits this pretty detached cottage built at the request of Lord Tweedmouth in 1865 to house the infamous illicit whisky distiller John Fraser. The adjacent Old Brewery now rebuilt is a private residence. The cottage setting is in a peaceful rural location with views over the surrounding countryside but is not isolated as it forms part of the conservation village of Tomich.
The model Victorian village of Tomich forms a part of the Victorian peer Lord Tweedmouths' Guisachan Estate, the large mansion house, which was his Highland estate home is now in ruins but the cottages in the village and the farm have remained largely unchanged since they were built. Victorian lamp posts line the quiet road through the village. The first golden retriever dog was bred in Tomich by Lord Tweedmouth and Winston Churchill a relative of Tweedmouth is said to have learnt to drive in the village.

What the owners Steve and Julie say …..
Glen Affric is one of the most stunningly beautiful glens in the Highlands of Scotland and offers an ideal central location for touring this scenic and largely unspoilt region of Scotland. The region Is an outstanding area for bird and wildlife watching and as cottage owners we fully encourage our guests to share our enthusiasm in feeding the visiting wildlife and supporting the local environment. The cottage garden attracts an abundance of birds and wildlife with foxes, badgers and the rare pine martens making nightly visits to the garden to be fed, its not unusual for the badgers to look in through the lounge window on their nightly visits.
In the skies over ahead red kites, buzzards and ravens circle, the superb golden eagles of Glen Affric can often be seen circling the garden. In the summer of 2019 our guests were fortunate enough to see a White Tailed Sea Eagle feeding on carrion just a mile from the cottage. Both the cottage and the area offers an abundance for wildlife enthusiasts and keen photographers.

With a multitude offorest tracks, paths and lochs the area offers a wealth of activities for the outdoor enthusiast with idyllic walking for all levels, mountaineering, mountain biking, fishing, kayaking and pony trekking. The spectacular 150 foot high Plodda Falls is situated 3.5 miles away and offers Forestry Commission maintained paths and trails with more extensive trails in nearby Glen Affric.
Half a mile away the Tomich Hotel offers a bar & restaurant, and The Coach House Café with its small gift shop is a must for cake lovers.(Both are seasonal)
Inverness the Highland capital is 35 miles away, Drumnadrochit and Loch Ness are 16 miles away, and Beauly 12 miles away. There is a small well stocked Spar shop in Cannich approx. 2.5 miles from the cottage.

The first floor has two bedrooms - one double room , one twin room - bed linen is provided as is one bath towel and one hand towel per guest.

Cosy Cottage in Spectacular Area!


By Jane Rash on 07-Mar-2020

Had a wonderful week staying at Brewers Cottage, cosy, well equipped and in a beautiful part of Scotland. Julie and Steve have put a lot of effort into supplying lots of information about the local area, walks and places to visit.
We especially loved watching the birds at the feeders, they kept us entertained for hours and we also had the Pine Marten visit every night. I hope all future visitors will support Julie and Steve in keeping this going. There was plenty of bird food supplied but we brought more Jam and Honey as this goes quite quickly! Places we went and would recommend are . . . . Dog falls and Coire Loch beautiful . . . Recommend the walk to Plodda Falls via the ruins of Guisachan House. Parked up at the Loch Affric Circuit Car Park and walked some of the Affric Kintail way, absolutely stunning!! The snow definitely helped. Saw majestic stags on a drive down Glen Cannich. A day trip to the Black Isle, well worth a visit. One week was definitely not long enough, the area has so much to offer. I would highly recommend Brewers for anyone considering staying in the area.

The Brewers Cottage


By Nick Bastow on 12-Oct-2019

What a wonderful, charming cottage. Set in the most beautiful surroundings. The cottage has all good quality appointed amenities. Beautifully clean, fresh white bed linen. Nicely furnished and the owners could not have been more helpful, welcoming and hospitable. The wildlife which is encouraged in the garden is magical. There is nothing negative I can think of to advise . I look forward to returning and experiencing the tranquil beauty of the Brewers Cottage Tomich again soon.

Nice little cottage in a historic village

Beautiful tranquil spot


By Kate on 05-Aug-2019

We came in the summer to get away from it all and that worked! Beautiful tranquil spot in the middle of nowhere (well almost). Lots of nice walks nearby; a small town with a shop a couple of miles away. Would be hard without a car. The cottage is small but cosy - only downside is that the bathroom is downstairs and a bit of a trek from the bedrooms. There was lots of info about local history and walks etc.

Perfect for a relaxing retreat


By Jenny on 27-Jul-2019

The cottage is clean and very well-equipped with cooking utensils. The best thing about it is the location. Tomich is a beautiful village with gorgeous stone cottages and extremely pretty gardens. Glen Affric is one of the most beautiful glens I’ve seen in Scotland and was perfect for a relaxing retreat.

Perfect week away


By Alex & Ben on 11-May-2019

Had a fantastic week in the highlands. The cottage is beautiful and has everything you need for your stay. Julie and Steve have compiled a folder of local walks around Tomich, most of which are off the normal tourist routes so we rarely saw anyone else-it felt like we had the highlands to ourselves! The weather was glorious, 23degrees most days so we made the most of the beautiful garden. The dogs had a ball. We only returned home on Saturday and are already looking to book again. Can’t reccomend highly enough.

We could not have asked for better place to call home for a week.


By Amanda on 10-Sep-2018

We could not have asked for a better place to call home for a week. The cottage had everything that we could need in way of comfort and equipment and even things we never thought of, such as night vision goggles to see what was skulking around the garden.
It was in a lovely location in the glen Affric forest and we loved hiking most days. We would highly recommend this to anyone.

3rd Year On The Trot


By Michael on 10-Jul-2018

3rd year on the trot at The Brewers Cottage. We even feel like honorary locals as we are treated so warmly. The cottage has everything you need and is an ideal base to discover the gems that the Northern Highlands have.

The cottage is warm, homely and very clean


By Gail on 04-Jul-2018

The Cottage is warm homey and very clean, has been refurbished over the last 5 years,also the added WiFi is great, the garden is beautiful and a lovely place to sit out and enjoy the scenery and peace and quiet with a nice glass of wine.
Lots of birds also visit the garden Woodpeckers love the bird table, as does the fox at night and pine martins.
It is set in the most fantastic little village with its own little cafe/tea room/post office, and a hotel a stone throw away for meals.
Pony trekking walking climbing mountaineering whatever you are into, or like me just peace and quiet in a fabulous location.
All you need to fetch is yourself it is really well kitted out, oh and a fantastic award winning Spar shop in next village about 5 mins away sells everything you need.

Idilic views down the Glen


By Micheal on 29-Apr-2017


Idilic views down the Glen. 2nd yr on the trot we have stayed. Will be back next yr. If you want to cook yr own food, go to Beauly, fabulous butchers and well stocked Coop, the Spar in Cannich is slightly lacking. Amazing wildlife in the garden, birds, badgers and a fox. Pony trecking in Cougie was amazing! You can do John O'Groats in a day too! Super cottage, all the comforts of home. Glen Afric Hotel 5 min walk, lovely food, whisky and staff.

Really nice cottage


By Karen on 04-Jan-2016

Stayed at New Year but only just been able to place a review?

Really nice cottage, had everything we needed, was clean, tidy, loads of storage space in the kitchen (very useful as we had stopped at a supermarket on the way up). Local shop in the next village has a really good supply of meats (crocodile and zebra!) If you fancy something more exotic.

Garden is beautifully done but was a bit cold for us to sit out, was really secure for the dogs though.

Some great walks, a couple right on the doorstep too.

Will be back!!

We had a fantastic week in Brewers Cottage


By Kevin on 24-May-2015

We had a fantastic week in Brewers Cottage. The quiet and peaceful Glen was superb. Listening the the birds and the stream was so relaxing. Glen Affric and Loch Affric are beautiful, and we saw some great wildlife. Dog Falls and Pudda Falls are a must see. We used our location as a base for visiting Skye on the West Coast, and Balmoral on the East. We would recommend Brewers Cottage, which is very well equipped, clean and warm.
