Plodda Falls Lodge, Tomich, Sleeps 6, Pets Welcome

Wood Burner

Plodda Falls Lodge is in a truly unique location.

Two miles further on from the Victorian Conservation village of Tomich, and along a mile of forestry track Plodda Falls Lodge is set in seclusion, close to the spectacular Plodda Falls, amidst some of the most stunning scenery in the Highlands.

The Lodge and location are unsurpassed. You can walk in total peace, uninterrupted by roads, in any direction, through forests, glens and mountains, as far as thirty miles of unspoilt wilderness, through Glen Affric and toward the West Coast of Scotland.

Plodda Falls Lodge once formed part of the historic Guisachan Estate and the model village of Tomich, that was created by the innovative Victorian Lord Tweedmouth. He also built Plodda Falls Lodge as the laundry to the now ruinious main Guisachan House. With high ceilings, massive douglas fir beams and magnificent features it truly reflects this era in the Highlands. The wonderful reception rooms with window seats overlooking the beautiful cottage garden are part of making it the perfect place to relax.

The old estate was planted with specimen trees and frequented by many of the rich, famous and royalty, including Winston Churchill who it is believed learnt to drive on the estate.

At Plodda Falls Lodge, nature and wildlife are abundant with majestic golden eagles, buzzards, osprey, red and roe deer, red squirrels, badgers, otters, pine martin and more, making it a true haven for animal and nature lovers and those wishing to stay away from it all.

In Tomich there is a small seasonal country house hotel with bar and dining, and further choice is available at Beauly together with a wide range of shops and other places of interest including the ruins of Beauly Priory that date back to 1230AD.  Drumnadrochit, 16 miles away and on the shores of Loch Ness, also offers a good choice of dining, tourist information, shops and places of interest including 13th century Urquhart Castle and Divach Falls with superb views across Loch Ness. 

For those wishing to travel further afield, the West Coast of Scotland, Isle of Skye and Glen Coe, to name but a few, make a wonderful day out.  Either river or loch fishing for wild brown trout or salmon can also be organised for you locally as can pony trekking and golf. The fantastic Glens of Affric, Cannich and Strathfarrar are all close by and offer superb sightseeing, nature watching, walking or mountain climbing.

If Plodda Falls Lodge is booked for the week you require, you may be interested in Guisachan Lodge (Saturday - Saturday bookings) or Erchless Cottage (Sunday - Sunday bookings)

We've stayed in many cottages in Scotland and we reckon this is perhaps the best we've stayed at. This was our home for two weeks and from the moment you drop your bags and shut the door you're immersed in the atmosphere and history of this beautiful house. Immaculately furnished, spacious yet cosy and filled with a sense of calm and tranquillity that could only arise from owners who love the place. And Jenny makes it all seem effortless, the house is maintained to the highest standards totally in keeping with the history and tradition of the old laundry house. It's a brilliant place to explore Glen Affric and beyond. You can walk, or cycle, or go for a run on silent, fragrant forest paths that draw you on past eerie, broken mansions and waterfalls, watch the clouds slowly envelope the massive fir trees, count the bats flitting silently around the house on moonlit nights, take midnight walks up the many forest trails looking for nocturnal wildlife, or swim in crystal clear lochs. We loved this house! We loved the area! Thanks to the lovely Jenny for cakes, veg and local information.

We had a wonderful stay at Plodda Falls Lodge which is beautiful, very comfortable, clean, spacious and well equipped. The surrounding area is amazing and we enjoyed taking advantage of the many local walks in an unspoilt area of natural beauty. We were visited during the day by Chaffinches, Blue Tits, Robins and Siskins, a constant presence at the bird table. By night our son was overjoyed to see, for the first time, badgers and a fox. Jenny provided us with a warm welcome (including cake) and was very helpful in providing information about the local area. We enjoyed our stay so much that we are returning next year.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Honeymoon at Plodda Falls Lodge. The cottage is delightful with everything you could possible need, including the very romantic wood stove in the lounge. We loved watching the birds from the kitchen window, and enjoyed the walks to Plodda Falls and the 'secret' Guisachan Falls. Plodda Falls Lodge is a lovely quiet place to stay, and we found it wasn't difficult to get around from here to visit the local attractions. The road is a little nightmarish, but is easily managed if you take it slowly. The food available at the Grouse and Claret Restaurant (Tomich Hotel) is divine and we would recommend to anyone. Jenny is really lovely and ensured we were happy with everything during our stay, including the wonderful lemon drizzle cake she make for our arrival!

An exceptionally well appointed and well maintained lodge: you will need for nothing here! The lodge was delightfully furnished and comfortable and Jenny, the owner, was careful to ensure we had everything we wanted. Best of all, however, is the setting...the smell of green, the quiet, the beautiful woods, parkland and burn. We swam in pools and under waterfalls most days, and were able to walk on the high hills of Glen Affric, arguably, Scotland's most beautiful glen.

We had a lovely week in a beautiful, peaceful location. The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. It is extremely dog friendly with our dog, Harris, needing a rest when we got home from all the terrific walks we enjoyed right from the doorstep, Harris loved snoozing in front of the log burner in the afternoon after a long morning walk and so did we! The garden is great for dogs and would be fantastic for children too. There were lots of things to do in the local area and slightly further afield especially if you like wildlife and the outdoors. Jenny was a great hostess, ensuring we were settled in well and was very generous with her local knowledge of the estate which enhanced our stay. We will be recommending the cottage to our friends and family and will be back in the future.

What can we say about Plodda Falls Lodge ... quiet, pristine, comfortable, cosy, amazing. 3 adults, 2 kids under 2 and 2 dogs and we absolutely loved it. Fresh air, peace & quiet and plenty of room for the kids in the garden. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the cake Jenny made for us and our daughter loved watching the birds on the birdtable. The rooms are immaculate and the main bedroom bed was fantastic, the carving on it is 1st class. Loved it so much we've booked for next year.

What a wonderful cottage. It has everything you need and the location is remote which suited us. The log burner is a treat on chilly nights and the bed is so comfortable you will never want to leave. The owner Jenny's own house is about a mile down the road - close if you need help with something but never obtrusive. The bird table has lots of visitors and you can walk/bike straight from your front door. Booked again to visit in October.

A little piece of Heaven on Earth! From the moment of our arrival, to be greeted by a lovely, homebaked, Lemon drizzle cake, we knew this stay would be special! The Lodge is so comfortable, the log burner is superb, and the beds are bliss! Best of all is Jenny, the owner, what a wonderful warm person. Jenny obviously adores this place, and this fills the house with such a lovely warm energy! We are booked to return in the spring and are so looking forward to our next visit.
