Top ten reasons to visit The Torridon in Autumn


Escape to The Torridon this autumn, where stunning scenery, rugged wilderness and quality experiences offer the ultimate in Scottish hospitality:

1. Scenery

Climb hills ablaze with colour, spotting native flora and fauna while you explore the epic landscape including the majestic Munros and calming lochs that surround our Highland retreat.

2. Stargazing

As the nights draw in, take advantage of our Bortle 1 location and immerse yourself in spectacular celestial experiences with our partner astronomer Stephen Mackintosh.

3. Food

Dine in the relaxed setting of 1887, with refined dishes created by head chef Paul Green. Quality produce is sourced from our Torridon Farm and two-acre Kitchen Garden, alongside world-class local suppliers.

4. Farm

Meet our friendly Highland coos and mixed breed pigs and try your hand at feeding them with leftover vegetables from our garden.

5. Whisky

Sip on a selection of 365 whiskies to warm your heart in the oak-panelled Whisky & Gin bar and delve deep into the origins and history of your drams, led by one of our expert bar team.

6. Wildlife

Spot red deer stags and pine martens whilst traversing the hills, or amble down to the shore to observe otters and herons. Kayak through Loch Torridon and Loch Shieldaig and potentially find playful seals, or sea eagles soaring overhead at Shieldaig Island.

7. Adventure

Be free in the great outdoors and learn new skills from our qualified Torridon Outdoors team, from aquatic activities including kayaking and wild swimming to terra firma-based Munro bagging, mountain biking and bouldering.

8. Kitchen and Gin Garden

For moments of peace and mindfulness, relax in the Kitchen Garden with a myriad of flowers, vegetables and fruit to discover, lovingly tended by our resort team in all seasons. Our recently created Gin Garden showcases the botanicals used in Arcturus, our very own gin.

9. Escape

Set on a 58-acre resort against the awe-inspiring backdrop of Wester Ross, there’s an abundance of open space to roam, release your mind from everyday worries and reconnect with nature, yourself and your loved ones.
