In her round-up of favourite hotels of the Noughties (2000 to 2009), Guardian travel writer Sally Shalam heaps praise on The Torridon and specifically the Boat House, our self-catering cottage on the banks of the loch, which she describes as one of her seminal stays of the last decade.
“Remote, romantic, but most importantly, proof that style and a stunning setting can be enjoyed in winter in the middle of nowhere. It was a wrench (after two short midwinter days) to turn my back on the 180-degree view of Loch Torridon beyond the terrace of this two-bedroom cottage on the Torridon Resort. Contemporary open-plan living, two bedrooms (only one has Loch views) and a bathroom. The kitchen was a joy, but the resort’s former hunting lodge is now a hotel. Which meant a bar and restaurant were on tap for loch lobster, truffle-glazed Highland beef fillet, Scottish cheeses, homemade oatcakes and a whisky selection running into the hundreds – chuck in Berocca with the thermals.”
