The latest edition of National Geographic Magazine features a Long Weekend in the Scottish Highlands and lands at The Torridon which the writer describes as arguably one of the most desirable properties on the planet.
Sophie Dening goes on to describe the hotel as:
an 1880s hunting lodge whose rooms and suites have been updated with boutique-hotel appeal: bold stripes, feature wallpaper, and REN bathroom products
It is funny when she suggests the setting and the property are so wonderful that:
the owners could run it Basil Fawlty-style and you’d still want to hang out here
Fortunately, as she points out, we don’t. Instead:
they lay on an army of helpful staff, a gastronomic dining room, upper-crust sitting room and snug library, and whisky a-go-go
I think she means the Whisky Bar. Cheers National Geographic.
