To See And Do
Sample The Stunning Scenery Of The Highlands
Our hotel in Torridon is situated in the rugged terrain of the Western Highlands, which has so much to offer for every visitor. Many of our guests come to walk and climb the many munros and corbetts that are the main feature of the area. There are also countless stunning lochs, forests and rivers that provide a haven for the multitude of different species of flora and fauna that are found here. Needless to say, the area is a paradise for the photographer - both professional and amateur.
The village of Kinlochewe lies on the south-eastern shore of Loch Maree and at the junction of three majestic glens: Glen Torridon, Glen Docherty and Glen Cruaidh Choillie.
Kinlochewe sits at the foot of Beinn Eighe which offers seasoned walkers and novices alike the only way-marked mountain trails in Britain. The Beinn Eighe Visitor Centre is on the edge of the village and the peaks of Slioch, Beinn Alligin, Liathach and Beinn Damh are all close by.
Loch Maree is home to one of Scotland's rarest birds; the black-throated diver. As a national nature reserve the area is important for the preservation of the largest remaining vestiges of ancient Scots pinewoods in the Western Highlands.
With an array of wildlife that includes red deer, pine marten, otters and the mighty golden eagle, the lochs, mountains and glens surrounding Kinlochewe, provide a unique opportunity to explore the wild side of Scotland.
