August may not be scorching in the Highlands, but the month brings long days beaming with morning rays, golden evening hours, and perhaps a welcome light shower or two. The summer Bank Holiday is a great time for a Scottish adventure at The Torridon, enjoying the rolling hills and the array of activities that explore them.
Experience The Torridon on two wheels
Hire a Saracen XC mountain bike and pedal along winding wooded paths, discovering lesser-known corners at a leisurely pace, or simply step out into the wilderness and explore by foot, breathing in fresh air, connecting with nature and clearing the mind.
Our Kitchen Garden will have a bounty of beans and peas, packed full of nutrients from our enriched Highland soil, and are the perfect base for our refreshing summer dishes. The herbaceous borders are in full bloom, so expect to find a delightful sprig of rosemary in your gin or chopped dill in your salad.
Flavour of the month
Strawberries are now at the height of their ripeness. A beautifully bold shade of red and bursting with sweet juice, you’ll find them on our 1887 menu, complementing a smooth Glenmorangie baba and a light crème fraiche from the Black Isle.
