The latest wellness buzzword ‘coorie’ sounds like it was tailor made for a break at The Torridon.
Coorie is a Scottish term traditionally meaning ‘to snuggle or cuddle’ but it has taken on a different meaning over the years. The ‘new coorie’ means to take appreciation in nature, your surroundings and the little things that make you happy. You can find out more about coorie in the book The Art Of Coorie by Gabriella Bennett.
Our guests love to visit The Torridon and switch off from the daily grind and we cater to this by offering bespoke activities that give the option to customise your stay with multiple options on offer. Whatever variant of coorie appeals to you, we have them all covered.
Coorie at The Torridon could mean cosying up with a partner or family in front of a log fire, feeling invigorated during a bracing walk in the clean mountain air or enjoying good food.
Indulge in a gin afternoon tea, after an exhilarating walk in the Highlands and sit by the fire in the cosy and luxurious lounge with beautiful views of the loch, green hills and big skies. Later, dine on locally-sourced food in our 1887 restaurant, from fresh scallops, dived for that morning, and radishes picked from The Torridon’s Kitchen Garden that afternoon, to The Torridon’s Highland beef.
You can even book a stargazing package with local astronomer Stephen Mackintosh who will take you for an evening excursion where you will learn about the night sky around Torridon. Or you can spend the evening sampling one of the 365 whiskies or 120 gins available in the Whisky and Gin bar, including our very own gin Arcturus, made from local botanicals and inspired by the surroundings.
