Green Awareness 

The Brewers Cottage is keen to work towards a greener future and preserve the location for forthcoming generations. 

The conservation of the Scottish Highlands especially the Glen Affric area is paramount for us, and we would like you to join us in doing our bit towards a greener future.  

When we took over the cottage in 2012 the cottage had a very natural cosy feel and without loosing the character of the cottage we have undertaken a great deal of refurbishment. Much of the work we have undertaken goes unnoticed with wall and roof insulation. New doors, windows and energy efficient heaters have been added throughout, along with a walk in wet room with underfloor heating and a power shower.  

Outside in the garden we have worked hard towards creating a wildlife friendly environment with the addition of more bird boxes, bat boxes, and bird and mammal feeding stations. 

We whole heartedly encourage all our guests to feed the wildlife during their stay, the interaction with nature is the reason many of guests return to stay at The Brewers Cottage year upon year

We have added numerous fruit trees and bushes and a herb barrel which we invite guests to use  during the fruiting season.

We understand that many guests will have travelled a long way to reach the cottage, there are numerous lovely walks from the cottage and we would encourage leaving the car and explore on foot, alternately cycles can be hired from the campsite in Cannich. 

A safe storage area for bikes can be found at the rear of the property. 

We can highly recommend the riding stables in Cougie for those who prefer four legs to two wheels(Booking is essential)  

There is a bus service from Tomich into Inverness several times per day. 

And lastly guests can take home more than just photos and memories by getting involved. There are many organisations and charities working hard to secure the long-term future of the Scottish Highlands – they all appreciate support.

The Brewers Cottage currently supports the work of a number of charities: Scottish Wildlife Trust, Scottish Wildcat Action, The Mammal Society and Trees for Life.


The Brewers Cottage Trees for Life Grove

Est. 2021

The Brewers Cottage would like to offer you the chance to do something to ensure that The Glen Affric region of the Scottish Highlands is just as outstanding or even better for our future generations.

To show our support (and we hope that you will join us) for the future of this area of outstanding natural beauty we have now purchased a grove with the charity Trees for Life.

A grove is a collection of trees planted on our behalf by the charity in selected areas of the Scottish Highlands in and around the Glen Affric National Nature Reserve.

You may wish to plant a tree in memory of your visit, in memory of a loved one, or you may wish to plant as a gesture in off-setting your carbon footprint for the journey you made in reaching Tomich.

‘The Brewers Cottage Grove’ can be added too at any time and by anyone. The cost of the tree which you purchase online is added to our grove at the cost of £6.00, you can add as many trees as you wish – there’s no limit.

We would be delighted if you join us in growing The Brewers Cottage Grove, thus securing the growth and restoration of this unique and special area for those who follow in our footsteps.
