Torridon Cottages

Sitting within the striking landscape of Torridon amidst the enchanting beauty of the Scottish countryside, are these two secluded National Trust for Scotland properties. Boasting glimpses of unique wildlife habitats and offering magical stargazing opportunities in the enchanting dark skies, both of these countryside cottages offer a memorable, remote getaway at any time of the year. This area of the Highlands is an enticing spot for hikers, climbers and nature loves, steeped in history, geology and wildlife throughout mounds of unspoilt scenery and the uncompromising terrain of five of the National Trust for Scotland’s 46 munros, including Beinn Alligin, which translates to ‘jewelled hill’ in Gaelic. The location of the cottages offers pure, idyllic peacefulness, while also being in easy reach from Torridon village, home to a local shop and the Torridon Hotel bar and restaurant. Torridon is the perfect spot for avid adventurers, being right on the staggering North Coast 500 journey, a magnificent 500 mile route covering some of Scotland’s best coastal scenery, sure to offer the road trip of a lifetime. Walking trails and cycling routes encompass the immediate surroundings, with guided paths leading up to Beinn Eighe nature reserve, as well as the Munro summits of Beinn Alligin and Liathach, with more leisurely strolls found amidst lochside tracks. More information can be found at Torridon Countryside Centre, with an insight into a map of the area, historical artifacts and stories, and local businesses around the area. Little ones will delight in the chance to visit the local deer park and museum, or a chance to go crabbing on the rocky shores of Loch Torridon. Inverewe Garden and Estate is another National Trust for Scotland property just a short drive away, home to exotic botanical gardens flourished with rare plants, and a serene pond surrounded by charming scenery for a relaxing day out. More shopping and eateries can be found in the rural village of Shieldaig, scattered with whitewashed cottages, a quaint café, pottery shop and local supermarket. The Torridon Cottages are the ideal choice for an unforgettable experience to a historic part of Scotland, tucked away in a secluded haven for you and your family.
