Lochan Torr – by River Garry, near Tomdoun
Lochan Torr is a self catering holiday cottage near the tiny settlement of Tomdoun. It sits 11 miles from Invergarry on the road to Kinloch Hourn, gateway to Knoydart. Lochan Tor is separate from the Highland Club complex and does not include access to the Highland Club facilities.
Close to the Great Glen, the A82 to Fort William, Fort Augustus and Inverness and the A87 to Skye, provides an ideal base for day trips around the Highlands during your holiday. Lochan Torr has many family attractions within easy travelling distance. The journey time by car to Nevis Range gondola and ski and mountain biking centre is approximately 45 minutes.
The sparsely populated region between Invergarry and Kincloch Hourn has some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery; woodlands with native Scots pine, Lochs Garry, Poulary and Quoich, wild moorland, hills and mountains, including the Munros Gairich, Gleouraich, Spidean Mialach and Sgurr Mhaoraich.
At the western end is fjord-like sea Loch Hourn and Kinloch Hourn, gateway to the “wild bounds” of Knoydart, one of Britain’s last wilderness areas. The diverse and largely uninhabited landscape of the glen also attracts a great variety of wildlife. Additionally,you can on occasion spot osprey on Loch Garry.
The cottage was built as a light and airy Scandinavian-style timber house, which has since been refurbished. It is situated just under half a mile up the estate’s private track, near the centre of Lochan Torr Woodlands; and yet only a short walk from Lochan Torr a’Garbh-uillt itself.
