Welcome to Tornashean
The Edwardian lodge of Tornashean, Strathdon is set in a very secluded and tranquil location overlooking the river Don and within its own private valley and beautiful grounds of 65 acres. The house offers very comfortable and spacious accommodation for up 14 people and comprises four double rooms, two twin rooms and a bunk room with four beds. Four of the rooms have en suite bathrooms. The house has a large well equipped kitchen with kitchen table. The dining room with an open fire has a table to seat 20 people, large sitting room with open fire, a galleried hall stairs and landing, tv room and snug with a wood burning stove and a billiards room with a full size antique billiards table. The house now has a broadband internet connection. There is a very well stocked local Spar shop less than half a mile away.
Tornashean is perfectly located a few miles within the Cairngorms National Park, and is a great base for hill walking, fishing on the Don and surrounding rivers, or simply relaxing amongst the beautiful landscapes of the Eastern Highlands. For those who enjoy a dram, Tornashean is close to all the famous distilleries of Speyside, and is also near to many ancient castles.
For those who book well in advance, we can organise fishing tuition & courses on our own beat of the Don and on various famous beats on the Dee with Mr Ian Murray, who is an author and fishing & wilderness guide. He is very happy to teach beginners or those with more experience. Guided walks into the Cairngorms may also be arranged with prior notice.
Walking in the Cairngorms
Bring your four legged friends along too, not only is Tornashean a large and welcoming house, but we have heated kennels for up to 3 dogs too. Common starting points for walks are villages like Braemar, Aviemore & Tomintoul.
Fishing in Scotland
Tornashean is conveniently placed as a base for fishing on the Dee, Deveron, Spey & Avon. We also have our own fishing (1.1 miles of double bank) which holds some very good wild Brown Trout & Salmon later in the season.
