National Walking Month


For hiking in the highlands

May is National Walking Month, and we can't think of a better way to spend it than by conquering the mountains of Wester Ross. 

The rugged wilderness that surrounds us is the ultimate counterpoint to city living, offering an antidote to the pressures of the daily grind.

It's the perfect time to leave your cares at home and hit the Torridon Trails

Bag a Munro

To 'bag' a Munro means you simply have to reach the summit of any Scottish peak over 3,000 feat. And fortunately, we have plenty to choose from!

The Torridon is surrounded by four great mountain ranges, or Munros - Beinn Alligin, Liathach, Coulin Forest and Beinn Eighe.

This offers no fewer than nine different ways to explore the beguiling landscape, with options for every ability and skill level. 

Our team of expert mountain guides will take you to the top, helping you to pus your limits before reaching the summit, where you will take in spectacular panoramic views of the sweeping Highlands. 

What's growing?

A smaller variation of Lovage, Scots lovage, is ready to be picked in May, This perennial plant, commonly known as Scottish liquorice root, grows on the rocky coasts of northern Britain and thrive in The Torridon soil. 

You'll find the mild, sweet leaves on our menu in 1887, and often served with fish like cured sea trout. 

Colourful flowers continue to bloom in our gardens in May, with apple blossom, rhododendrons and azaleas coming out. The beautiful pink and purple flowers serve as an ethereal addition to the resort. 

Flavour of the month

Asparagus season is in full swing, and this chef favourite is served simply but deliciously at 1887 with beef rib reared from out own Highland cows and foraged wild garlic to complement its fresh flavours.
