What our guests have to say ....


The cottage is more than just a holiday let to us, its also our home.. we love spending time there and we take great pleasure when our commitment to this historic property is appreciated by our guests who we greatly enjoy sharing it with.....


"The Brewers Cottage is one of those property's that you hope to be able to rent and when you do, it's just like you wanted. In the property market they say location location location and believe me Brewers Cottage is just that, other cottages may be same but in all honestly Brewers Cottage Tomich in Glen Affric Scotland is something very very special . My wife and I are both in our late 70's and worked & visited many countries and without doubt Brewers Cottage ranks near top of our list. The cottages web site is full of information, you need to read it 2 or 3 times to digest the Information on cottage contents and appliances is extensive. If you are a animal lover - forget the kitchen - view the visitors who arrive, many at night but also day time for there food, so who are these visitors in the night, well for a start there are "Pine Martins" " Badgers" "Foxes " cheeky rooks ( day & night ) at least two types of mice ( pinching) food - now I must make it clear these are not in the cottage but are viewed from lounge window into outside drying area. Pine Martin even eats at the window ( unbelievable ) Then there's deer, eagles, red kite, cuckoo ( calling & flying ) plus other birds in abundance. Did we see all yes except for the eagle - some naturally not in the garden. So the area - if you like walking of cycling - you are in - but ( its not a big but ) all walks seem to start by going uphill, not quite true but it appears that way ( joke ) There was not one place we visited we did not like, traffic - well pretty much non, walking on roads, say every 10 or 15 mins at rush hour. Finally neighbors and local people, they are all helpful and friendly Must end the review, please do not visit Brewers Cottage in Tomich , Glen Affric - we want to keep it a secret."

" My partner and I had a wonderful time at The Brewer's cottage - we stayed for a week in early May 2021 and loved every moment. The cottage is well fitted out (we very much enjoyed the wood burner in the lounge) and sits in a lovely garden with views towards wooded hills. It seems to be a haven for wildlife - dozens of bird species in the garden, and we were visited by two Pine Martens and a badger, with really good views of both courtesy of the feeding station just outside the window. Further afield we saw Ospreys and Golden Eagles. The cottage is really well situated for access not only to Glen Affric but also Glen Cannich and Glen Strathfarrar (we really recommend a trip up the latter if you have time!), though we felt like we could have spent the entire week exploring Glen Affric. Plenty of hillwalking opportunities too. We were originally supposed to have this holiday in May 2020, but the pandemic put paid to that, so it was long awaited and even more appreciated. Worth saying here that I don't think I've ever had such helpful and supportive hosts. Julie and Steve were absolutely fantastic about supporting us to rearrange the trip and keeping us up to date with how changing regulations might affect the booking. They also provided a wealth of information on the wildlife of the cottage. We can't recommend them or The Brewer's Cottage enough! "

"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."

"Beautiful location with walks and wildlife on the doorstep. We were lucky enough to have a visit from a Pine Marten one night, sat on the window sill eating nuts. The cottage offers everything you need and the log fire is perfect for the evening. Highly recommend - 10/10"

"Set in a Superb location for walking and outdoor activities all around the Glen Affric area and further afield, just on the edge of the village of Tomich, within walking distance to the village public house & with so many stunning locations to visit, on foot or by car & all from a cottage that offers everything you need in comfort & With that homely feel. it’s a place we’ve visited twice now & it’s a place we will return too ; we cannot fault the brewers cottage."

"My wife & I have been here before in 2017, there have been improvements made since then but for me there was not much to improve on. It is tucked away just off a dead end country lane in a very sparsely populated place. An abundance of time and space, peace, darkness and lots of walking and yet not far from Inverness, Fort William, Isle of Skye, Oban etc. etc. and a hotel in the village with a local Spar shop & Post office 3 miles away in the next village. Wild life, ancient Caledonian forest all on the doorstep. It's a wonderful place."

"We enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing week in this very comfortable cottage. After a good long walk and there are plenty of excellent routes in the area, we'd come home to light the woodburning stove and relax for the evening .. perfect."

"Lovely comfy cosy cottage, perfect location for our holiday, would defiantly come back"

"We had a lovely week at the Brewer's Cottage celebrating my wife's 60th birthday. The cottage has been modernised and is superbly equipped. The location is very quiet with only the wildlife for company, yet is within easy walking distance of the village centre. Julie and Steve provide lots of walking ideas both from the doorstep and further afield. The drawback of the relatively remote location is that there are no local shops, so provisions have to be planned in advance if the intention is to home cook! In summary, a great base to explore this wonderful area of the Scottish Highlands."

"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."
