Apprentice Level 2 Winner & Scottish Apprentice of the Year, Scottish Apprenticeship Awards 2017
Throughout the year we’ll be introducing you to our incredible team at The Torridon. They’ll be sharing their experiences of working at a luxurious resort, imparting local knowledge and telling us how life is in the glorious Highlands.
How long have you been at The Torridon?
I’ve been working at The Torridon for two and a half years.
What is your favourite part about your job?
I love to meet all of our guests and ensure that we are going the extra mile to make their stay an unforgettable experience.
You are a double apprentice award winner – how does it feel?
I feel very proud of what I have achieved, and I am so grateful that I was given the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing apprenticeship scheme.
What do you do when you have time off?
I like to see more of the area and spend time with other members of staff. I also like to take a trip to Inverness and do some shopping.
Can you recommend a local(ish) bar or pub? (apart from the Inn!).
I would recommend the Shieldaig Bar & Coastal Kitchen, everyone there is so friendly. They have a pizza oven and the seafood pizza, served with a whole langoustine on top, is amazing. There is a pool table and dart board, so it’s a nice place to spend the evening with a group of friends. Plus, it’s only a 10-minute drive away!
What do you think is the most romantic element of The Torridon resort?
I would say that the most romantic element is the seclusion, it is somewhere that you can just get lost. You can forget about everything when you are in Torridon and just be completely in the moment.
