Best time to Visit

Average time to visit

It is very difficult to predict the weather in the United Kingdom - in the summer from May to late September is generally seen as the most pleasant time to visit. Rainfall is difficult to predict - but the UK does not receive as much as many are led to believe! In the winters, temperatures do fall, but there is nothing better than finding a remote pub with a roaring fire to sit beside after a long walk in the country.

Description

The Torridon is a luxury Scottish country house hotel located in one of the most spectacular corners of Scotland. Offering fantastic food and an array of activities to you get out and about, the Torridon is the quintessential Scottish Highland retreat.

The Torridon is located in 58 acres of parkland at the foot of Liathach and the shores of Loch Torridon on Scotland's north-west coast. You can easily access it from Inverness to the east, or Fort William and Skye to the south (you can stop at Eilean Donan Castle en route). The views are spell-binding, and this area of the Highlands simply has it all - its isolated location is in itself its major draw, far away from the madding crowd and having this little patch of Scotland all to yourself. That said, the hotel is also wonderfully run and extremely comfortable, focusing on attentive personal service to ensure all those little touches exceed your expectations (for instance we love the hot-water bottles put in the beds whilst you are at dinner).

The hotel itself is sublime, blending old-world Scottish charm with a modern flare. There are just 18 bedrooms, all with amazing views, each one cleverly furnished with vibrant colors set against traditional fixtures and fittings. Expect free-standing roll top bathtubs in classic Victorian-style bathrooms, luxury Egyptian cottons, and modern iPod docking stations.

The Torridon prides itself on its fantastic culinary offering. Sit down to a gourmet 5-course dinner in the evening using the freshest of ingredients (amazing after a good walk in the Highlands). They use beef from their own Highland cattle and fish caught from the Loch Torridon. Vegetables are grown in their own kitchen garden and its all brought together by David Barnett, their superb Head Chef, with immense skill and execution.

Getting out and about by day is what the Torridon is all about, and from walks, clay pigeon shooting, sea kayaking, canoeing and biking there is much on offer to ensure you make the most of this amazing corner of Scotland. Breath in the Scottish air and just let your jaw-drop at just how beautiful this corner of the world actually is.

There is also the Torridon Inn located within the grounds where you can pop along to for a local beer and traditional Scottish food.

Gwen Nicol (Staff)

The Torridon is a luxury boutique hotel located in one of the most remote and beautiful parts of Northwest Scotland. Set in 58 acres of parkland at the end of a sea loch, this hotel offers luxurious accommodation in the heart of the highlands. The 18 rooms are modern and many offer fantastic views of the mountains and the loch. 1887 is the 3 rosette fine dining restaurant and it offers 4 and 7 course tasting menus of contemporary Scottish cuisine. The Torridon also operates a more casual inn next door and the pub here is not to be missed. It is cosy and full of locals and our food was superb. There are many activities on offer at the hotel and you will find that you might need an extra day to fit it all in. The Torridon Hotel should be on everyone's list of places to stay in the Scottish highlands.
