The Torridon  (Shortlist*)

‘A fabulous stay.’ In a ‘wildly beautiful’ location, Rohaise and Daniel Rose-Bristow’s ‘atmospheric’ luxury hotel is at the end of a single-track road, on a wooded estate beside a vast sea loch. The former shooting lodge has ‘lovely’ reception rooms with big open fireplaces, leather sofas, moulded plaster ceilings and panelling. ‘Very comfortable’, well-equipped bedrooms vary in size and style; the best have views of the loch (the rest overlook the mountains or grounds). Chef David Barnett’s French-inspired five-course table d’hôte menus are based on Scottish produce including grouse, fish and seafood and moorland venison; herbs, vegetables and fruit are from the kitchen garden. The informal, family-friendly Torridon Inn is also on the estate. ‘Wonderful’ porridge at breakfast has demerara sugar, cream and whisky. Complimentary activities range from gorge scrambling and archery to ‘excellent’ guided walks at sunrise and sunset. Drawing room, whisky bar (more than 350 malts), dining room (classical background music). Free Wi-Fi. Weddings. 58 acres of parkland; walled garden. Children (2–10s £40) welcomed. 10 miles SW of Kinlochewe. 18 bedrooms (1 on ground floor, suitable for disabled; 1 deluxe suite in adjacent cottage; dogs allowed). Per room B&B £235–£360. Dinner £60. Closed Jan, Mon–Wed Nov–Mar. The Torridon is a member of Pride of Britain hotels.

  • Had a fabulous stay here; climbed our second Munro with the help of one of the excellent guides attached to Hotel - they are keen to expand the activities offered. Food was excellent throughout and met our calorie requirements. Staff were friendly without being overbearing - clearly significant effort goes into trainingworking here must be the equivalent to an Oxbridge education

  • Immaculate throughout. V friendly staff. Excellent service. Rooms equipped with everything from a shoe horn to a clothes brush. Food probably of Michelin star quality but a bit predictable in some respects. We liked the detailed and completely accurate bill.

  • Everything superb, just as we remembered it from our last trip five years ago. We were given a complimentary upgrade (but they didn't know it was my birthday treat from my wife). Expensive but worth it for such special occasions !
