Hello and a very warm welcome to The Brewers Cottage Holiday Let

From the moment we stepped inside this historic cottage in the summer of 2012,the former home of infamous illicit distiller John Fraser we fell in love with its peaceful and historic energy. 

We hope that you may consider a stay at our homely cottage for your holiday in the Highlands of Scotland, and that you will love both this old world cottage and the locality as much as we do...

The cottage is set in a tranquil rural location on the edge of the historic village of Tomich in one of the Highlands most outstandingly beautiful glens – Glen Affric....'The Glen of A Thousand Whispers'. Glen Affric lies south west of the nearby village of Cannich, its unique landscape of lochs, mountains, pine, oak and birch which collectively form the Caledonian Forest have been deemed a National Nature Reserve and a National Scenic Area. 

The Affric area is abound with a wide variety of wildlife including Red, Roe and Sika deer, Red Squirrels, badger. foxes and Pine Martins plus a unique and diverse variety of bird life including Black Grouse, Golden Eagles, Ospreys, Crested Tits and the Scottish Crossbill.

The Victorian model village of Tomich forms part of the Guisachan Estate the former home of Lord and Lady Tweedmouth. 

Guisachan House 1.5 miles west of the village unfortunately fell into a state of disrepair and is now derelict.

The cottage itself comes with its own tales of illicit distilling which can be read about on our cottage history page.

We are thrilled to announce that thanks to ongoing feeding and habitat improvement the list of wildlife now coming out of the wild and visiting the cottage garden is somewhat unique and extensive.

More information can be found on our wildlife page and footage of our garden visitors is posted regular to our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.

We consider the cottage to be in the perfect location for those seeking peace and tranquillity with the option to enjoy the extensive wildlife quiet literally on the doorstep and outdoor activities on offer in this beautiful area of the Scottish Highlands.

We regard the cottage a place to escape from the pressures and constrains of the outside world we hope that you will join us and embrace the cottage for what it is...a place to relax, recharge and simply connect with nature.
