About the Estate

A lovely spacious garden of lawns and flowerbeds, which is secure for both children and dogs, with a beautiful and secluded estate of about 65 acres with the river Don running through the haugh (low lying meadow next to the river), make Tornashean a perfect place for family holidays, family gatherings, celebrations, reunions and wedding parties.

Local Area

Situated in Strathdon which incorporates most of upper Donside, home to the famous Lonach Highlanders. Tornashean is a large family house perfect as a base for exploring the land of rich heritage and history and spectacular landscapes.

Walking in the Cairngorms

Tornashean is an ideal base for walking in the Cairngorms and climbing five of the the six highest mountains (Munros) in Scotland. Braemar (25 miles) and Tomintoul (17 miles) are ideal starting points.

Fly Fishing at Tornashean

Our own beat on the river Don of 1.1 miles of double bank is ideal for fishing for wild brown trout and also salmon later in the season.
Tornashean is also ldeal as a base for fishing on the rivers Dee and Spey. I have good contacts at both Ballindalloch Estate on the Spey and Invercauld Fishings on the Dee as well as Kildrummy fishings further down the Don. Fishing can be organised given plenty of notice and fly fishing tuition is also available if required. All fly fishing is catch and release and we take the conservation of the fish and the river habitat very seriously.


Guest Reviews

It is lovely having the estate to wander around, & the river is idyllic. The house is very well appointed, we especially enjoyed the billiards table.

Mrs Walker

Fantastic spot, totally tranquil & relaxing, the sun shone & could not have had a better week!

The Naismith Family

Tornashean is lovely & peaceful – the best place in the World to unwind & chill out. I had a few good wild brownies on the dry fly, but put them all back. Would definitely like to return & fish some other local rivers for salmon.
