Winter

Tombain has been described by guests as “the perfect ski chalet” in the Cairngorms. Located at almost 1,300ft, from its lofty perch it surveys the valley below and the Cairngorm Mountains beyond. Located within easy driving distance of both the Cairngorms and the Lecht Snowsport areas, and with a great sledging hill right in front, you can even see the Cairngorm Funicular Top Station and the Ptarmigan Restaurant from the Cottage!

With all modern conveniences of a warm and cosy cottage, with central heating and a wood burning stove, Tombain is a great place to be when the temperature drops and the snow comes in. Do come prepared though, as while the road up the hill may be cleared by the Council snowploughs, it is not unknown for guests to be snowed in for a day or two! Snow shovels are provided! When it snows, it can be a challenging drive up the last stretch of road to Tombain, and a capable vehicle with either 4 wheel drive, snow tyres or snow chains is strongly recommended for winter visits.
