Once a Victorian shooting lodge, it is now home to 18 individually designed rooms and suites that marry these Victorian-era features with Scottish heritage.

The hotel has an old-world charm with modern flair, and many of the rooms offer beguiling views across Loch Torridon and the majestic mountains beyond. For a special occasion, stay in one of the luxurious bedrooms in the main hotel, or opt for The Stables for something family-friendly. For something secluded, the private luxury cottage Boathouse is set on the edge of the loch and is the perfect romantic retreat.


Dining at The Torridon is a culinary experience like no other. Blending tradition with innovation, guests can savour the finest Scottish ingredients transformed into exquisite dishes that celebrate the region’s rich culinary heritage. Whether enjoying a sumptuous meal in the elegant surroundings of the 1887 restaurant or opting for a more relaxed atmosphere at Bo & Muc, the emphasis on locally sourced, seasonal ingredients shines through. With its picturesque views and a menu that pays homage to Scotland’s culinary treasures, dining at The Torridon is a feast for the senses.


Make the most of your locale and head out into the great outdoors to explore. From mountain biking and coasteering to sea kayaking and gorge scrambling, The Torridon is ideally situated for adventure. Spend an afternoon hiking up a munro to be rewarded with the most magnificent sunsets, before stargazing with an expert astronomer. There’s also a myriad of wildlife to be spotted (think otters, seals, and sea eagles) and, come October, you can expect to hear the bellows of stags embroiled in their annual rut from afar.


The Torridon employs biomass energy derived from local timber to ensure biodiversity preservation, with on-site chipping for generating fuel used in the estate's heating and water systems. A flexible forestry plan is implemented, allowing the team to harvest and plant new trees throughout the year, while water, including drinking water bottled in reusable containers on-site, is sourced from a borehole. The elimination of single-use plastics, utilization of food waste as feed for the Torridon Farm's cows and pigs, and recycling or composting of the majority of waste, including glass, coffee grinds, and shreddings, reflect the commitment to sustainable practices. The Torridon's sustainability initiatives have gained recognition from the Carbon Trust, Green Tourism Business Scheme, NOW Force for Good Alliance, and Earthcheck.
