Dear Guest 

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Torridon Estate. If you have any questions please contact us anytime. See below for some extra information that may come in useful for your stay. 

 

Main House:Check-in is open from 5 pm – 8 pm.

Important: The GPS can lead you in the wrong direction since we are on a private road, please follow the instructions below :

We’re easy to find - simply drive west through the village of Torridon and follow the road along the coast. After about two miles you’ll see our private access road and the sign "Torridon Estate" to your left. Please follow this road (take it slow as it’s a bit bumpy – apologies) until you reach the main house about 300 m beyond Lochside Cottage and the pier.

We very much recommend booking a restaurant in advance and also check opening times since they can change. 

The Torridon Cafe and Shop in Torridon  (open Mon-Sat 10:00-17:00 - off-season times can vary) www.torridonstoresandcafe.co.uk

They serve wonderful coffees, cakes, lunches, etc.. (the carrot cake is a particular highlight) and stock everything you may need (groceries, dairy, wines, beers, spirits, fruit, and veg, etc.)

The nearest Supermarkets are in Inverness (1,5hrs drive ) Dingwall  ( 1h drive) or smaller supermarkets / larger shops in Gairloch (40 min )  Loch Carron ( 40 min ) 

Tesco does deliver to the Village hall twice a week but you have to book a slot.
