I am going to the hotel in April 2014 and will be travelling by train from Queen Street Glasgow, can anyone advise the best way to get to the hotel.

Thanks very much

Hi. To be honest, you need a car. You can get the train to Inverness and then take the Kyle of Lochalsh service to Strathcarron. From there it is approx 45 minute drive. There is a very sporadic local post bus service. I would contact the Torridon - as a luxury establishment fry may be able to help you out with station pick-up.

I was going to suggest something similar.....train to Achnasheen and then contact the hotel. Or go for a car hire from Inverness.

p.s. Fabulous hotel in a stunning location :-)

Holy COW that hotel is expensive, and even worse with the USD to pound conversion. But it looks beautiful.

They also own The Inn right next door which caters for a different budget http://www.thetorridon.com/inn/ :-)

My friend (who is a life long lover and mountaineer of Torridon) is arranging to visit this spring and is splitting his stay - 3 nights in the Inn and 2 nights in the hotel which seems a good compromise to me.

Haven't stayed ourselves but called in late one night last Christmas while staying in Diabaig in the forlorn hope of getting something to eat. The staff were brilliant, we were too late for a meal at the hotel (and the Inn had already closed for the winter period) but they phoned around Shieldaig and Gairloch for us to check whether anywhere was still serving and then rustled up sandwiches and soup for us. Stunning hotel, beautiful area.

You could walk from Achnasheen. I once met a couple of retired postmen doing that, and retracing old postal routes.

But a car would give more mobility......

Many thanks for your helpful replies, I will get in touch with the hotel.

I stayed there in 2003, we hired the hotel for the weekend for my daughters wedding, we had an amazing time, because it was only our family there so relaxed service was 1st class, so looking forward to going back.

Thanks again.

Achnasheen to Torridon is about 20 miles and Attadale to Torridon just under 30 miles
