Reasons to visit

Occupying a hidden corner of the North West Highlands and sitting on the famous North Coast 500, Torridon boasts some of the finest scenery in Europe and is a haven for hillwalkers and mountain bikers. Whether you're scaling the heights, biking the trails or walking the coastal paths, the Torridon area has something for everyone.

We're on the North Coast 500 driving route! Say goodbye to piles of leaflets by downloading the NC500 App or find out more about the local area with this handy PDF guide to Wester Ross.

Head off the well-beaten track of the NC500 and discover a true taste of Scotland's North West Coast. For many visitors to Wester Ross, Torridon and Sheildaig are as far as they get. The road from Torridon to Diabaig, though less travelled, is definitely one not to be missed. The single track road is only a few miles long but it's almost traffic free and offers some of the most stunning views in Scotland.

Discover the local wildlife on the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve and National Trust for Scotland Estate or sample freshly caught local seafood while sitting back and soaking in the stunning scenery.

With so much to discover in the area our team will be happy to share their local knowledge, making sure you get the most out of your trip to this relaxing corner of Scotland's North West Highlands.
