From Camping to Cottages to Luxury: "Torridon Itself" Applecross Hotel Tip by nickandchris
Applecross Hotels: 7 reviews and 22 photos
Torridon village itself is a treat. A few houses and cottages, a basic campsite (away from the loch) a YHA, a Countryside Centre, Deer Museum and a well stocked village shop.
We were suprised on a Saturday morning how quiet the village was. Wonderfully peaceful and such stunning scenery. There are parking places in the village with fantastic views over the loch and picnic tables for when the midges have disappeared.
Accommodation ranges from holiday lets (I would like to know how many houses are actually lived in all year round), a basic, very muddy and midgey campsite, an area where free camping is permitted on the south lochshore, (honesty box pays for local amenities upkeep etc.)a modern Youth Hostel, lodges and the grand Victorian Loch Torridon Hotel, on the south shore of the loch, set in superb grounds.
Unique Qualities: I think the location and scenery make Torridon stand out in my mind more than many places. Our stay on the lochside was great, despite midges. The one morning when we awoke to sun and a beautifully calm loch was memorable. Not often you get moments like those.
Address: Torridon, Wester Ross
Directions: All around the village and loch.
