Scrambled eggs with Isle of Ewe smoked salmon, eggs benedict with smoked ham, grilled Summer Isles kippers with lemon butter. CNN travel has just ranked The Torridon as offering one of the world’s most Sumptuous Hotel Breakfasts in their Out of The Office section.
Jessica Coley, New York-based travel correspondent writes:
Indulgence varies according to destination, and in Scotland, it translates to a full Scottish breakfast with maybe a wee dram of whiskey on the side. This loch-side luxury property sets the table for a leisurely breakfast of free-range highland eggs, potato scones, Cumberland sausages, highland back bacon, grilled tomatoes and more.
We will forgive her foreign spelling of whisky but it’s true, a drop of The Torridon malt is always an optional addition to your homemade porridge and cream.
While there are plenty of light and fruity options, the full Scottish breakfast is the big draw, particularly for those about to take part in any of our activities. Cumberland sausage, Highland back bacon, black pudding, haggis, grilled tomatoes and mushrooms, potato scone and a choice of eggs, set you up nicely for a day on the hills.
A big cup of creamy hot chocolate with homemade croissants and jam, on the other hand, prepares you for a cosy day in front of the fire in the drawing room.
