For road trips and rhubarb

In April, The Torridon is officially open for the high-season, and we welcome guests every day of the week.

Why not join us for an Easter celebration this year, or dine on some chocolates delicacies from our afternoon tea menu.

The finer weather also means that you can now get outside in the spring air with confidence, with an abundance of thrilling activities on offer including gorge scrambling, coasteering, mountain biking and guided walks. 

Experience the NC500

Looking for adventure? The North Coast 500 beckons.

Often compared to the famous Route 66 in the UK, this incredible road trip takes in some of Scotland's most dramatic and inspiring landscapes - including that of Wester Ross. 

And of course, because The Torridon is located on the North Coast 500, you can plan a stay with us as one of the highlights of your drive through the Highlands. 

What's growing?

The classic British ingredient rhubarb is now in season, and the natural form of the vegetable appears in a more greenish hue than the forced variation, which is pink.

Tulips are also blossoming in the gin garden, with a wide range of varieties adding an array of colours to the surroundings.

Flavour of the month

Chef Alex uses our rhubarb to create homely, warming desserts, Its tangy, sweet flavour profile is best served with a gingerbread cheesecake and a tipple of our own Arcturus Gin. 

Arcturus is handcrafted with local botanicals and flavours including Scots lovage, bilberries and kelp seaweed.

We also source forced rhubarb from Yorkshire's 'rhubarb triangle' where it is grown by candlelight!"
