“Lovely Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

The setting for here is lovely as is the building. I have stayed in the converted stables before and found them very comfortable. The meal served was very nice indeed as was the atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

“Torridon Inn: good accommodation and food in a marvellous location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

I've been going to Loch Torridon since I was a teenager, and that moment when it heaves into sight as you drive along the single-track road from Kinlochewe is always magical. The Torridon Hotel is a wonderful old Victorian pile, very swish but quite expensive. Right next door is the Inn, in the converted stables, and owned by the same couple, which is very good value for money. The rooms are decent sized and well furnished, although only a couple of them have views of the Loch. The restaurant is very informal, but the food is surprisingly good and inexpensive. And the bar has a wonderful array of single malts. The staff are unfailingly helpful and friendly. The location, on the south east corner of the Loch, is perfect, and there are walks spreading in out in all directions, and of varying degrees of difficulty -- I recommend the walk along the western shore of the Loch as far as the Falls of Balgy, where a small stream cascades down from Loch Damh (or Damph, as it is sometimes written). The road to Shieldaig has wonderful views of the Loch and the Torridon Hills beyond, and it you're feeling especially brave you can drive on to the Applecross peninsula via the Biallach na Baa, the highest pass in the UK (and a truly scary road) which gives magnificent views over Loch Carron and eventually over the Minch to Skye and the Cuillins. The Torridon also provides many adventure services - hill walking, fishing, kayaking, etc. All in all, a jewel of a property in one of the most isolated and beautiful places on the West Coast -- isolated but well worth the effort to get there (you can get to Achnasheen by rail, or it's a 70 mile road trip west from Inverness).

“Great food and friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

After a long day walking up Ben Alligin we thought we would go to the Torridon Inn. We had a table in the conservatory restaurant and the meal was delicious. There was a good wine list and selection of draught ales. The service was friendly and efficient. Would highly recommend.

“How does a seahorse get from one place to another? >> He scallops”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

And the Scallops were delicious.
All the food in this restaurant were fresh and delicious. I personally started with the Haggis which was not as traditional as expected but was tasty none the less. The peppery flavours were strong and worked well with the parsnips and mash potatoes.
For the main course I shared with another to create a surf and turf. We had the Scallops with bacon which were as fresh, meaty and delicate as could be. I would go as far as to say they were the best damn scallops I have had, and the sauce worked well for the rice and the chips. Staff were friendly and coped well in organising and bringing food out for a table of 16-20. In addition we ordered the venison and black pudding burger which was again super tasty. Although large in size it was not the best burger of the trip the one we had at the Gille Brighde cafe was firstly cooked better and a fat to meat ratio.

After the meal there was no room for dessert but plently of room for whisky. Large Selection and relatively good price.


Be warned although the bar is of a good price the restaurant is expensive.

“Average in quality and value for a casual lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

We stopped her for a bar lunch and were disappointed with the small range of sandwiches and casual meals on offer - we did not want the restaurant menu of full meals. There was only one soup available (lentil) which we had and to be fair, it was very pleasant. the accompanying cheese sandwich was very disappointing - one small piece of sliced cheese on sliced bread with a bit of pickle. It was not at all good value for the price paid. Maybe the full restaurant meals are of better quality but the Inn should ensure that all meals are of high quality and good value for money.
