Torridon House was built in 1875, being constructed from the ancient Torridon red sandstone. The house was originally designed for family living, built by Duncan Darroch.
Torridon Estate is made up of 150 acres. The house itself is surrounded by a large garden, with native trees framing the large front lawn. Most of the area consists of native woodland, with the River Corry running through the forrest and passing beside the house. With a stunning waterfall and deeper plunge pools, the river is an eye catching piece of the property.
The river is an important part of the household as it fuels the hydro turbine, which supplies the house with naturally generated electricity. As well as this, it supplies the house with pure water flowing down from the surrounding hills and natural springs.
