Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The Torridon has a stunning setting, surrounded by towering mountains and glassy lochs - relax, unwind, breathe in the fresh air and take in the glorious views. 

Rooms at The Torridon

The rooms and suites in the Main House are each individually designed and have their own character - they are unique, quirky and colourful. They combine Scottish heritage with Victorian-era features, bespoke furnishings and modern, flamboyant touches. The beds come with Egyptian cotton sheets, duck down feature duvets and cosy tartan bedspreads, and the deluxe bathrooms come with Cowshed toiletries. Many have panoramic views over Loch Torridon and the towering mountains from large windows.

The Stables, housed in the former inn, offers cosy and comfortable rooms, set around a courtyard, some of which overlook the cows on the farm. There are options to suit everyone including double rooms, twin rooms and family rooms with bunk beds sleeping up to four or six people. They are perfect for adventurous types who don't want to worry about their muddy boots. 

There is also the Boathouse, a private waterfront retreat with panoramic views over the mountains and the loch. It has two bedrooms, a kitchen and a lovely lounge with a wood-burning stove and a wide window framing the vistas. The romantic Boathouse is perfect for cosying up, enjoying the tranquillity and watching the birds and nature around the water - see herons hunting for their breakfast in the mornings. You have the freedom to make your own meals, but if you don't feel like it there are plenty of dining options at the hotel. 

Food & Drink

Tuck into hearty gourmet meals that make the most of the fresh produce and flavours of the Highlands, including from Torridon’s farm and grown in the hotel’s gardens. There’s a fine dining restaurant, 1887 (named after the year the original house was built), or you can choose the casual setting of Bo & Muc, housed in the former stables, for classics such as fish and chips and macaroni cheese. Those with a sweet tooth shouldn’t miss the chance to have an irresistible afternoon tea while savouring the views.

Sample a dram or two in the Whisky Bar, which stocks hundreds of whiskies and gins, including the hotel’s own Arcturus gin, while the Beinn Bar serves up a range of other tempting drinks, alongside live music. 


It couldn't really get any more local here: The Torridon grows most of its delicious ingredients, from apples and carrots to a range of herbs, in its two-acre gardens and vegetable farm, and Highland cattle, chickens and Tamworth pigs are reared on the farmland. The flowers that you see everywhere around the hotel are also grown in the gardens. Sustainability is a key part of the hotel's ethos and infuses everything it does, and guests are welcome to get involved and find out more. 

Activities at The Torridon

Explore the wilderness on the doorstep on a scenic guided walk, or go mountain biking, canoeing or sea kayaking. If you're feeling brave, put on a helmet and wetsuit and try your hand at gorge scrambling or coasteering, or take a refreshing dip in the crystal-clear but icy waters of the loch! All around there are great wildlife spotting opportunities: look out for deer, otters, seals and the wide variety of birdlife too - you may be lucky enough to see a white-tailed eagle. Head out on the water on a yacht to explore the loch and islands further afield.
