Our postcode is not sufficient to get you to Tomphubil with a Sat Nav - it will get you to Glengoulandie Deer Park about 1.5 miles South. Failing that, here are some good old-fashioned directions.
From the South - Follow A9 towards Inverness. Exit at A827 Ballinluig junction and follow signs to Aberfeldy. At the traffic lights in Aberfeldy, turn right onto the B846 towards Weem and Kinloch Rannoch. Follow this road for 9 miles through Coshieville past Glengoulandie Deer Park - Tomphubil Lodge is on the left just past the junction with the Schiehallion Road. The driveway entrance to Braes Lodge is just after the gate to the main house.
From North - Follow A9 towards Perth. Exit at A827 Ballinluig junction and follow directions above.
