Tomich (village)

Tomich is a Victorian model conservation village situated in the Scottish Highlands at the western end of Strathglass, approximately 30 miles from Inverness. The Village of Tomich is part of the Guisachan Estate and was created to serve Guisachan House, which is now derelict and lies a further 1.5 miles to the west of the village and was the home of Lord and Lady Tweedmouth. Much of the history and rare flora and fauna remains and is enjoyed still today.

The golden retriever was first bred in Tomich by Dudley Marjoribanks, 1st Baron Tweedmouth. A statue to commemorate the breed's founding was erected in August 2014 by Friends of Guisichan, a US-based organisation of golden retriever lovers. Reaction in the village has been mixed.

Its picturesque beauty means that Tomich is now a popular holiday destination for those looking for fishing and walking holidays in the central highland area. Amenities in Tomich include a small country house hotel, a post office, bike hire and a swimming pool.

The local landowner has applied to build 6 x 119m high turbines to be erected near to the Tweedmouth Memorial on Beinn Mhor, 1800 metres to the south of the village.
