VISITING THE HIGHLANDS
With some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery on your doorstep, a car ride sees you access another world of beaches, golf courses and the absolute best in Scottish living
THE GLENGARRY REGION
With eight lochs, three commanding castles, six whisky distilleries – including world-famous makers Glenmorangie, Glenfiddich, Dalmore and Dalwhinnie – an abundance of Championship golf courses and 45 award-winning hostelries, enjoying Highland life is made easy within easy reach of Tomdoun Estate.
A RICH HISTORY
The homes of kings, queens and princes makes the area ripe for exploring. Whether that means famous local sites synonymous with names of Rob Roy MacGregor and Bonnie Prince Charlie, or travelling a bit wider to explore the waterways and drover trails that shaped the Highlands, it’s a chance to experience the real Scotland.
The landscape is said to have created the game and you can see why when faced with challenging courses and the most hospitable of local clubhouses. With world-class venues in every direction, choose between coastal links or inland courses to experience the very best the home of the sport has to offer. Whether that means a round with the club professional or a tournament-level four-ball, all is available.
Rising to an altitude of 1,345 metres, Ben Nevis is Britain’s highest peak. Situated at the western end of the Grampian Mountains, Ben Nevis sits due south of the Estate and remains a tourist staple for walkers visiting the region.
THE CAPITAL OF THE HIGHLANDS
Inverness offers more, because it simply is more. A seat of Government. And a regional seat of power through the ages.
Capital of the Highlands and the seat of the Highland Council, situated where the mouth of the River Ness meets the Moray Firth, Inverness is quite the place. Overlooked by its towering castle, explore the Battlefields of Blàr nam Fèinne and Culloden and romanticise about the life of gaelic king Mac Bethad Mac Findláich (MacBeth), whose slaying of King Duncan was immortalised in Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
Famous for its culinary extremes, Scotland famously offers its own cuisine as a true world food benchmark. Whether that’s the very freshest fish caught on rod and line, taken straight from pristine waters, or venison steaks cured to the most exacting of standards, the region has it all. Wash your meal down with a wee dram of perfectly presented single malt to complete a genuinely unique fine dining experience.
“Wherever I wander, wherever I rove, the hills of the Highlands forever I love.” Robert Burns

Tomdoun Estate covers 11,000 acres of unspoilt Highlands, west of Fort Augustus and north-east of Malaig. This historic part of West of Scotland is rich in clan heritage and great place to embrace the ancient spirit of the Highlands. It remains one of the UK’s last great wildernesses.
