Meet the Torridon Team – Ben Sharp

Ben Sharp - Senior Activities Instructor

What brought you to the job/area?

The opportunity looked good to progress my career in a beautiful part of the world and work on my sea kayaking

What does your job entail on a day to day basis?

Advising guests on their own activities, dealing with bookings and enquires, running all the behind the scenes admin and staff training for Torridon Outdoors and running various activity sessions

What is your favourite thing about the job?

The daily change – no two days are the same so it keeps the job varied. I also get to meet people from all over the world, all with differing abilities so every activity I run will be different.

Are there any ‘must sees’ for visitors to the area?

The view of the Cullins on Skye from Applecross area

Do you have any advice for someone coming to work at The Torridon?

Bring a car, be prepared to be remote and make the most of the opportunities you get to come out with qualified guides on activities on your days off!
