Tomatin House

Tomatin House dates from the mid-17th century when James, Earl of Moray granted a Charter to Bean MacBean. The MacBeans are a sept of the MacKintosh Clan Chattan. It remained the seat of the Tomatin MacBeans until 1928 when it was purchased by Mrs Florence Bulloch. The house was seriously damaged by a fire in 1955 and rebuilt on the original foundations four years later.

The village of Tomatin is fifteen miles south of Inverness. The name is derived from the Gaelic Tom-Aiteann, 'Hill of the Juniper'
