The space

The Richmond Arms Hotel, is situated on the SE corner of the main village square. Built around 1898 as a fishing lodge, it has always remained a firm favorite of the fishing community. In recent years the hotel has had a troubled history, and has been closed since 2009, but after 6 months hard work to meet current fire and safety regulations we are now fully open.
Tomintoul is famous for being the highest village in the Scottish highlands standing at an elevation of over 1100 ft, Lies within the Cairngorm National park, and is on the GlenLivet estate, one of the Crown Estates in the area.
The village is flanked on the West and East sides by rivers. The Lecht Ski centre lies 6 miles to the south.
The area has lots to offer for all visitors, from Whisky Distillaries, Castles, Dramatic scenery and Walks. Tomintoul makes a perfect base to explore this part of Scotland.
Opening this year are Mountain bike trails around the village which have been specially commissioned by the Crown Estate, and can cater for all levels of experience.
Hidden to the South West of the village, from the Hamlet of Delnabo is the stunning Ailnack Gorge, a truly amazing natural feature, and a must see for all.
At the Richmond Arms we offer rooms on a Bed and Breakfast basis, lunches and evening meals can be purchased across the Bar. Our rooms comes with towels and bedding as well as Tea and Coffee making facilities. Dogs are more than welcome at a small extra charge per-night.
