  • "The Old Smiddy Cottage was beautifully decorated and absolutely spotless!"

    Everything was in pristine condition and the kitchen was the best equipped of any holiday cottage we have ever let. The welcome package was lovely and generous, including a bottle of wine and lots of wood for the stove. The owners, Jane and Richard, were very helpful and responsive. For walkers, there are a number of tracks right out the front door as well as many more a short drive away. The village of Tomintoul provides a bucolic, secluded location to get away from it all.

    Very well equipped with plenty of crockery, towels etc and a great welcome pack. Cottage was very cosy and welcoming. Location is perfect for the village, walks and roads if wanting to go further afield. We would highly recommend and will definitely book again.

  • "Gorgeous cottage which is cosy, warm, comfortable, beautifully decorated and very well equiped."

    The shower could be a little warmer, but the alternative bath water is sufficiently warm. In close proximity to the Lecht Ski centre and various other outdoor activities. We had a wonderful time there.

  • "An extremely enjoyable two-day break based in Tomintoul."

    Accommodation was excellent - very clean and comfortable. Welcome pack for ourselves was much appreciated - as were the treats for the two dogs that accompanied us. Would happily return to the accommodation and would recommend it to anyone intending to visit the Speyside area.

The property

Resting in the heart of the pretty village of Tomintoul, towards the north of the Cairngorms National Park, in Scotland.

Internally, the cottage has been renovated by the owners to provide light and welcoming accommodation for friends or families looking to explore this picturesque region.

It was formerly the old Smiddy and the contents of the Blacksmith Cottage can be found in the local museum.

Discover a delightful sitting room with a range of contemporary furnishings to relax and unwind of an evening, with a wood burning stove to keep you warm during those chillier evenings.

Walk through to the open-plan kitchen, which has a wonderful set of contemporary fitted units and plenty of worktop space for preparing your meals, with appliances of the highest order, on-hand to help you cook up a storm for your loved ones. Step into the conservatory/dining area, which provides ample space for family gatherings over a hot meal and a refreshing beverage, and is also an excellent spot for a hearty breakfast whilst planning the day's events.

The property is mainly on one floor with the single bedroom, a double bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and sitting room all on one level.

Another double bedroom is on the lower ground floor (down two steps) and a further double bedroom is situated on the first floor.

All with quality furnishings.

The family bathroom provides the option of a bath so you can have a relaxing soak at the end of a tiring day.

Let your four-legged friends loose in the enclosed garden, and enjoy a refreshing glass of wine yourself at the patio furniture, taking in the lovely country views surrounding you.

Discover a range of whisky tours within easy reach, including all the famous Speyside distilleries where you can sample some of the finest tasting whisky in the whole of the country. This rural location has lots to offer if you enjoy spectacular scenery, walks and Cairngorm wildlife.

The Glenlivet Mountain Bike Trails and the Lecht Ski slopes are ideal for those keen sporty types and if it's history you're interested in, venture towards the wonderful Ballindalloch Castle and Drumin Castle, dating back hundreds of years.

The Old Smiddy, 107 Main Street is a delightful choice for a countryside retreat to the heart of Scotland within reach of Royal Deeside, Cairngorm Mountains and the sandy beaches of Moray.
