Spring comes late this far north so when The Telegraph Magazine featured The Torridon last weekend as one of the great places to stay for Spring walks, you know you have a few more weeks to enjoy that before Spring has truly slid into Summer.
The writer, Francesca Syz, describes how the resort sweeps down to the loch and how Dan and Rohaise run the hotel
as an elegant, comfortable, classic-contemporary affair, attracting those looking for complete seclusion and whisky drams by an open fire – and also hearty walkers
In truth, we welcome every kind of walker, hearty or not and as Francesca points out, lovely loch-side walks start directly from the house.
As she says, there is more to the Torridon’s activities programme than walking and nature trails, with sea kayaking, canoeing and gorge scrambling also on the menu. Many of them are offered on a complimentary basis with your hotel stay.
Her final recommendation for a great walk though is the Annat Trail

Feel free to book a room today. Those newborn lambs will be popping out and frolicking for a few weeks still to come.
