Scotland’s west coast is full of wonder and this grand old house is no exception. It sits cradled by mountains in 58 acres of woodland and gardens with lawns that roll down to the shores of Upper Loch Torridon. Red deer roam, eagles soar, highland cattle graze in fields. Inside, sparkling interiors thrill: a roaring fire in the panelled hall, a zodiac ceiling in the chic drawing room and 365 whiskies in the bar, one for each day of the year. Big windows pull in the view, canny walkers pour off the hills to recover in style. Bedrooms are hard to fault, some big, others bigger, all overflowing with contemporary delight. Expect bold colours, padded headboards, exquisite linen, magnificent bathrooms; one room has a shower in a turret. Outside, a stunning two-acre kitchen garden provides much for the table. You feast on ambrosial food in a beautiful dining room, perhaps west coast scallops, home-bred pork, Valrhona chocolate with pistachio and salted caramel. Dan and Rohaise also have the village inn with simpler food and good rooms from £130. Sea kayaking, guided walks, abseiling and mountain biking are all on tap.
