Nollaig Chridheil – Merry Christmas
Daniel and Rohaise welcome you to join the Christmas festivities at The Torridon. Our Victorian house is the perfect place to spend Christmas.
Roaring log fires. Woodland walks. Fine dining. Luxurious, comfortable surroundings. It’s a traditional Christmas, with bags of style. The relaxed atmosphere means you’ll feel at home, away from home. Have a look at our programme of events below, then look forward to spending this special time with us.
Traditional afternoon tea and welcome dram? Christmas at The Torridon starts with our traditional full afternoon tea. Our famous Christmas tea is served from 2.30pm until 4.30pm and includes scones, Christmas cake, mince pies, sandwiches and chocolate treats. It’s an ideal opportunity to meet other guests and the Torridon team who’ll look after you, and to relax and enjoy your Christmas at The Torridon.

Top it off with freshly brewed coffee and a glass of freshly-squeezed orange juice, not forgetting toast and Geraldine’s famous home-made marmalade.
