Up north, the offer of luxurious hotels is scarce. Not loads of options besides The Torridon. When we booked for one night, we were refused to stay because of the 2-night policy on week-ends. Too bad. So we booked at The Inn instead, putting a note : if you have anything vacant in the main house, whatever that might be, that's where we want to stay. We were delighted to treceive an email 2 weeks prior to our stay, offering us a selection of available accomodation; we went for a Deluxe.
You have to deserve The Torridon. It is a long drive away from everything. Not that anything is close in Scotland, but The Torridon litterally sits at the end single track roads, crossing breathtakingly picturesque scenery. This is Scotland at its best.
Service is second to none. Bellmand runs out to hel us with your luggage, and because it is raining (or perhaps not) goes park the car. You step in the hall, understand lobby, with a roaring fire. Check-in a breeze. Beautiful views out on the loch and mountains. Overheated rooms, as always. Totally redecorated room was modern, with a nice flask of whisky especially distilled for the hotel, for us to drink. Excellent bed. Bland lighting in the bathroom would be the only minus.
After checking, your are treated to teau and carrot cake in the lounge, by the fireplace. Lovely time.
Dinner at The Inn, pub style, just what we wanted to get.
Nice breakfast. Could have eaten more, though.
We walked the grounds. Not down to the loch, as we did not feel like crossing the field. Lovely walled garden. Had the occasion to steal a glimpse on the main suite : not worth the expense in my view. Tiny Bedroom with a side view, and probably not the best view in the house, out from the living room.
