Tomintoul, Scotland

The quiet village of Tomintoul, the second highest in Scotland is located in the northern sector of the Cairngorms National Park. Situated centrally between Glen Avon, Glen Livet, the Hills of Cromdale and the Ladder Hills it’s an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area. Visitors gain access to an astounding range of walking and cycling and in winter the Lecht ski area provides some snowsport alternatives. The village is in fact the snowiest village in Great Britain.

The resort is also a node on the Speyside Way, one of Scotland’s famous long distance walking routes. It is located at the end of a spur that joins up with the main route at Ballindalloch. Speyside, probably better known for its whiskey than its walking provides an alternative “adventure sport” in visiting its many distilleries. Too many drams and the next day it all seems a wee bit extreme.

The tourist accommodation at Tomintoul comes in the form of two hotels, a handful of bed and breakfasts, a couple of self catering cottages and a youth hostel. And for wining and dining the choices are currently restricted to the two hotels. Another hotel that has been closed for some time and was still at the time of writing may reopen soon. When it does that will undoubtedly add a third restaurant to the existing complement.
