Janny's Cottage, in the tiny hamlet of Tomacharich, enjoys outstanding views of the magnificent north face of Ben Nevis and Nevis Range Ski Centre.

It is situated in the middle of film locations for Harry Potter, Braveheart, Rob Roy and the BBC TV programme 'Rockface'. It is also only about 35 miles from 'Monarch of the Glen' country.

Why Janny's Cottage?

Janny's Cottage
The cottage stands adjacent to the former village schoolhouse. The school buildings would have been in the care of the caretaker or janitor - or the 'janny', as we called him when we were schoolchildren.
