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.
