Experience Hogmanay


Hogmanay in the Highlands

Welcome the new year in true Scottish style with The Torridon’s traditional Hogmanay. Starting on 30 December, the two-night, three-day celebration brings together a selection of indulgent dining experiences and joyous dancing, or ceilidh, all with a bottle of Champagne or a dram of Scotch in hand. Chef’s New Year tasting experience offers a flavour of the Highlands, while a classic afternoon tea is offered every day of the experience, alongside full Scottish breakfasts each morning. Wake up on the 1 January and blow away the cobwebs with a guided walk around the local area, before coming home to The Torridon’s resplendent buffet, filled with local shellfish, carved meats, and other British favourites.

What’s growing?

Our Jerusalem artichokes are harvested in January, persevering through the coldest months to flower, ready for harvest at the end of the month.

A relative of the sunflower, these nutty tubers are grown underground, however also produce tall yellow flowers that can reach up to three metres!

Flavour of the month

Our world-class Scottish Scallops are in their prime in January - harvested fresh from the North-East coast of Scotland in Orkney.

There are a variety of ways to eat and prepare this delicate shellfish, which can be paired with a range of tempting flavours.

We like to serve them baked in their shells, with onion and a sea truffle broth, Look our for them on out Hogmanay menu.
