The village of Torridon sits on the shore of Upper Loch Torridon, at the foot of Liathach. The mountains of Beinn Alligin, Beinn Damph and the Beinn Eighe nature reserve are all within easy reach.

"Beautiful place, beautiful vieuw, beautiful cottage"

Really nice, the landscape is amazing, but it could be cleaner there is a lots of dust and spiderweb.… More

Thanks for your review Marie. We're pleased that you loved the view as much as we do but very sorry to hear that you thought the cottage could have been cleaner. We hear that the spiders have been enjoying the unusually dry weather so we've invested in an extendable feather duster to make sure we can reach any out of reach cobwebs. We're at a loss to explain where any dust might have come from but Sheila who looks after the cottage takes great pride in keeping it spotless and will always pop round to make things right if guests let her know that they're not happy.
