The Torridon

By Achnasheen, Highland

Super-smart hotel cradled by mountains on the shore of Loch Torridon - chic rooms, great food and 365 malts wait


18 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Scotland’s west coast is full of wonder and this grand old house is no exception. It sits cradled by mountains in 58 acres of woodland and gardens with lawns that roll down to the shores of Upper Loch Torridon. Red deer roam, eagles soar, highland cattle graze in fields. Inside, sparkling interiors thrill: a roaring fire in the panelled hall, a zodiac ceiling in the chic drawing room and 365 whiskies in the bar, one for each day of the year. Big windows pull in the view, canny walkers pour off the hills to recover in style. Bedrooms are hard to fault, some big, others bigger, all overflowing with contemporary delight. Expect bold colours, padded headboards, exquisite linen, magnificent bathrooms; one room has a shower in a turret. Outside, a stunning two-acre kitchen garden provides much for the table. You feast on ambrosial food in a beautiful dining room, perhaps west coast scallops, home-bred pork, Valrhona chocolate with pistachio and salted caramel. Dan and Rohaise also have the village inn with simpler food and good rooms from £130. Sea kayaking, guided walks, abseiling and mountain biking are all on tap.

Local points of interest from Daniel & Rohaise Rose-Bristow

  • Opportunity to see a Sea Eagle and visit the island of Rhona on the Torridon Sea Tours trip - goes from Shieldaig 5 miles from the hotel - trip included the most amazing seafood lunch.
  • Take a drive over the highest road in Scotland to Applecross. Road climbs 2000 feet and offers amazing views across to Skye and the Outer Hebrides.
  • Take advantage of our complimentary passes to Inverewe Gardens. Run by the National Trust, these immaculate gardens are inspiring from the novice to the expert.
  • Ideally located on the world famous North Coast 500 driving route
