An Tochailt has become our home from home. It is a beautiful house — a mini castle paradise. Both in winter, when its warmth, coziness and roaring log fires offer shelter from the snow and gales, or in summer, when the endless days allow for glorious and breathtaking views down Loch Ericht, it is a simply magical spot. The furnishings are comfortable, the towels and linens excellent quality, the unlimited hot water and huge bathtubs much needed after a day’s fishing or walking. The dining room is magnificent and a perfect place to enjoy eating our daily catch or Christmas feast! (The kitchen is disproportionately small for the size of the house, but it suits the 3 of us perfectly, although it might be snug for larger groups.). With a drying room/boot room and lovely scullery, the house is very well equipped for those who enjoy outdoor living. And there are books, games, dvds and the all-important Wi-fi for those who prefer to stay at home.  The house is a haven of tranquility and seclusion, yet the excellent, friendly and efficient team on the Ben Alder Estate are just a phone call away. We always hate to leave and we look forward to each return visit.
