Grand Tour Of Scotland: Tomintoul

Day 5: 15 August 2019 – Tomintoul

Tomintoul nestles at a height of 354m or 1,160ft on the northern slopes of the Cairngorm Mountains, and lays claim to the title of the highest village in the Highlands.

Tomintoul today is an attractive stone-built place very much as the Duke of Gordon would have envisaged it. The 40 foot wide main street is part of the original design, as is the grassy Square that forms the focus of the village. The drinking fountain in The Square is a later addition, being placed here in 1915.

Thank you very much for taking the time to join me on my travels through Scotland. I hope you enjoyed it just as much as I did.

Till next time, safe travels and keep dreaming.

Have a fabulous day.
