Our Purpose & Our Pledge
The Torridon is set within a 58-acre estate at the head of a magnificent sea loch and at the foot of majestic munros, on the West coast of the Scottish Highlands. It includes a two-acre Kitchen Garden, where produce for the hotel’s 1887 restaurant is grown, and its own Torridon Farm where Highland coos and Tamworth pigs are reared.
Families, friends and lovers retreat to The Torridon for the ultimate Highland experience, from guided mountain biking and sea kayaking to tastings in oak-panelled Whisky & Gin bar, choosing from the 365 malts and over 120 gins available, including the hotel’s own Arcturus Gin. The hotel is situated within a Bortle 1 location, ensuring stargazing aficionados can spot celestial wonders with the hotel’s partner astronomer, or keen drivers can explore Scotland’s version of Route 66, the North Coast 500, before stopping to top up their electric car at one of the hotel’s Tesla charging points.
Originally built as a hunting lodge for the Earl of Lovelace in 1887, The Torridon is now run by husband and wife team Dan and Rohaise Rose-Bristow, who took over from Rohaise’s parents in 2004.
Individually-designed rooms are created by Rohaise blending quirky details with bespoke pieces from locally sourced designers and artisans. In addition to extra insulation in the roof and energy-saving LED bulbs to reduce energy usage, the resort runs on biomass energy that is created onsite from local woodchip and timber, and pure water is extracted from a bore hole on the estate.
