Torridon Luxury Boathouse
Torridon luxury Boathouse is a perfect romantic hideaway on the remote shores of Loch Torridon in the Highlands of Scotland. This is a luxury top of the range two bed conversion of an old boathouse on stunning Loch Torridon in the North West Highlands.
Surrounded by the soaring Torridon peaks, this secluded and peaceful spot is ideal for relaxing and spoiling yourself, wildlife watching, paddling, fishing or even climbing a few of the famous Torridon ridges such as the ‘Horns of Alligin’ or mighty Liathach.
Torridon is a magnificent corner of the North Western Highlands with some of the finest mountain scenery in Europe. Steep rocky ramparts carved out of Torridonian sandstone capped with quartzite are typical characteristics of these unique peaks.
inside the Boathouse, the facilities are top notch, including really comfy lounge with woodburning stove. It has two good sized bedrooms up a spiral staircase and a bathroom beneath the eaves. The highlight is the amazing conservatory which puts the loch on your lap. You can spend hours here watching the wildlife and the clouds come and go across the ever changing mountain and water vistas.
The Boathouse is run by the famous Torridon (Hotel), so you can pop up for a drink or two from extensive whisky bar on enjoy a flash meal from their acclaimed chef. The food with an emphasis on fresh local produce is very good, if rather pricey. Great for a last night holiday blowout.
For experienced hillwalkers with a good head for heights a traverse of the spectacular ridge of Liathach is second to none. This route involves exposed scrambling especially over the pinnacles of Am Fasarinen and offers wonderful views in every direction.
Check out the local wildlife including the Golden eagle (and if your very lucky) Ospreys or Sea Eagles, Crossbill, Pine Martins, Otters Red and Roe deer and an unusual number and range of dragonflies!
Torridon Activities offer a programme of outdoor activities including archery, low level guided walks, sea kayaking and guided cycling.
A superb lower level walk which gives you an insight into the wild beauty and character of the Torridon peaks is a visit to the mighty Coire Mhic Fhearchair (distance 13km time 5 hours) This route is on good paths and takes you into the heart of the Torridon mountains to view one of the most impressive corries in Scotland at a height of some 590m. The huge cliffs of the Triple Buttress of Beinn Eighe are spectacular and the views to the remote Flowerdale peaks are stunning.
Follow the road west along the northern shore of Loch Torridon to Lower Diabeg, an idyllic spot with wonderful sea views. There are no shops or tourist facilities. The traditional red telephone box next to a white building adds the “Local Hero” touch.
Take a scenic drive along single track roads to the famous Kishorn Seafood bar. Legendary prawns, scallops and mussels and views to die for!
