Post Office, Tomatin

A village of the Inverness district of Highland Council, Tomatin lies in Strath Dearn on the north bank of the River Findhorn, 14 miles (22 km) southeast of Inverness. Tomatin lies in an exposed location at over 305m (1000 feet) dominated by the Monadhliath Mountains to the southwest.

A former railway halt, the mainline railway to Inverness still runs to the east of the village and crosses the river over the grand Findhorn Viaduct (1897). The A9 trunk road, which now bypasses Tomatin to the east, is conveyed over the river by a modern bridge. The old road, which still services the village, crosses the river a half-mile (1 km) to the south using a rather more modest concrete bridge (1926), which replaced one built by Thomas Telford in 1833.

Strathdearn Primary School opened in the village in 2002, with a roll of approximately 40 pupils. The Tomatin Distillery, the largest in Scotland, lies to the northwest of the village.
