keep fitTuesdays, during the winter months, Strathdearn Hall 11am -12.

£2 per session.

We would love to see new members come along. It's a simple format - a tape of music plays for half and hour, starting slowly and getting faster and we each do whatever exercises we feel like doing, according to our fitness levels. And we chat ;) After the music, there's about 20 minutes of stretches and yoga-type moves.

Strathdearn Football Club was formed in the early 90's by Jimmy Irvine and managed by him until 2005. Club Captain Kenny Macdonald has been with the Club since it was formed. The current squad comes from Tomatin and Strathnairn and plays in the Strathspey and Badenoch Welfare League.

Strathdearn football TeamThis winters weather has played havoc with the Inverness League programme due to end in February. As at date of writing, Tomatin have played just 8 of their 16 scheduled league games and currently lie in second position in the league. However, in view of the varying number of games played by different teams, a true position is difficult to establish at present. Hopefully the weather will improve and allow more matches to take place.

The present team comprises of a squad of 20 players. The team strip is maroon with yellow flashes. League matches are played on Tuesday nights and Cup matches on Friday nights both at 7pm.

StepItUpHighlandTomatin has a very active Step It Up Highland Walking Group. SIUH is not a rambling club, but aims to encourage community walking for health. The aims of SIUH are given in

We are a walking group for health, but this needs clarifying. No one thinking of joining us needs to feel that they should already be fit. The whole point is to encourage all of us to take more exercise, and with that aim in mind, we run two walks simultaneously: one for those who are able to walk for up to one and a half hours, and one for those who can manage up to half an hour, which might include those with disabilities. On our walks we also enjoy observing wildlife, flora, landscapes and geological points of interest, as well as our many archaeological sites in Strathdearn.
The Group has three leaders. We finish our walks with refreshments in Strathdearn Hall, which promotes a very friendly and co-operative group, where each individual helps and considers all other members.

Tomatin and District Gardening Club meets at 7:30PM on the third Monday of each month at Strathdearn Community Hall. The aims of the Club are to improve our enjoyment and understanding of gardening under the rather special conditions prevailing in Strathdearn.
The Gardening Club is the organising body for the annual Strathdearn Flower Show.


Gardening in Strathdearn is constrained by climate (frost and wind rather than rainfall), acid soils and the ravages of rabbits and roe deer. Nevertheless gardeners in Strathdearn manage to create a variety of gardens, from alpine, through woodland, with some, in the more favoured, sheltered spots even aspiring to the cottage garden. Some manage high class fruit and vegetables which leave the majority of us perplexed and full of envy.
