Things to do in the area

Experience the wonder of Scotland’s outdoors, heritage and history

With the rugged Scottish Highlands on our doorstep, you’ll want to experience the best of what nature has to offer. Scotland’s natural beauty is what’s been bringing visitors to this part of the world for centuries. The hotel sits on the edge of Loch Torridon with Beinn Alligin — the mountain of beauty — beyond.

But there’s more than great views to enjoy. Even on short walks it’s possible to spot deer and pine martens, and seals and otters around the shore. Birdwatchers will be spoiled for choice with the diversity of birdlife in the area; if you’re lucky you might catch a glimpse of a white-tailed eagle.
