    Torran Cottage reviews
    This is a spacious but basic cottage with an awesome view of Beinn Eighe. You could just live in the kitchen and admire the view. There have been a few recent changes on the estate - two new "run of river" hydro schemes, one near the cottage but so neatly done that it adds to the scene. A great deal of mature timber has been felled, leaving the lower slopes rather barren pending re-planting. Finally, the cottage now has Wi-Fi - you won't be downloading films but it's great for news & weather info.
    Mr Stark - June 2019
    Torran cottage is beautifully maintained and well-appointed - everything you need for comfort and livability. It is situated with the Torridon mountains all around next to the river and loch. Simon made sure we were well-supplied with logs for fuel and that we had all we needed. Good cooker, fridge/freezer, comfortable beds and furniture, serviceable floor coverings including a splendid coconut fibre mat by the back door, drying room, lashings of hot water - and done to a very nice standard. We were last in the Torridons some 11 years ago, so it was nice to see it more lively, with more eateries in the little villages and a good shop in Fasag - with a pleasant coffee shop. Nannies in Shieldaig was good, and we enjoyed a return visit to the Mountain Coffee Shop in Gairloch - try the plum pie!! - with useful shops there and the Steadings coffee shop was good also. Coulin Estate is perfect for walking and wildlife and bird spotting - we had a wonderful two weeks, despite some of the worst weather we ever had in the Highlands - and the snow on the peaks on our last morning was gorgeous. Already booked again for next year. Our dog loved it, too.
    Rev Bartlam - October 2018
    The most idyllic cottage, in the most idyllic location, excellent in every way, as long as you like isolation. It even has a good drying cupboard for when it rains most of the time & an endless supply of logs for a cosy fire. Excellent in every way,
    Mrs Sanger- Davies - September 2018
    Torran Cottage stands on its own three miles up a track used by estate vehicles. From the kitchen you look out onto Loch Clair. From the other windows you look up the wide and open glen. This is the perfect spot to regenerate the energy required to live in the hustle and bustle of our world. We've been coming back for 7 years now, and hope to return many times into the future. There is always something going on, so isolation isn't impacting. Walkers, estate managers, hydro electric folk and forestry folk are frequent visitors. So too are the highland cattle, the grazing herd of cows, the ponies, and, of course, the deer. Our elder daughter joined us for a couple of days this time; she hasn't been before, and fell for the beauty and charm of the cottage, and its surrounding. The cottage is surprising well equipped (surprising because on first acquaintance you may think it a little old fashioned), with everything you need for a relaxing time, including ideas for walks and local attractions. You are not diverted by the TV and the radio isn't great. Wifi, however, has turned up but is best at night, so not a diversion during the day. And don't think about using your mobile - you can't, not until you reach the main road. The place is enhanced by the extraordinarily talented Neil and Simon who do everything for the estate, and are as helpful as anyone can be, shedding light on local flora and fauna. You don't really notice the poor weather as everything else takes your mind away....into a happy place.
    Dr Mowbray - September 2018
    One of the most idyllic cottages in Scotland; Torran Cottage nestles beside Loch Coulin almost at the feet of Beinn Eighe with Liathach looming to the west and surrounded by lower but no less astounding hills and like a fairytale one could almost expect to see a kelpie rising from the waters of the loch. The cottage is clean, comfortable and well provided for especially with lovely dry logs for an open fire. The windows on all four sides reflect the incredible views. The track in, is an adventure that takes 15 to 20 minutes to drive but gives more time to take in the beautiful surroundings. For me the only thing the cottage lacks is a fixed shower which for a disabled person is essential. The Whistle Stop Cafe is only a few miles away in Kinlochewe and is highly recommended. Gairloch and Poolewe with shops and eateries are within easy drives away. This is one of the areas of my country that make me proud to be a Scot.
    Mrs Whyte - July 2018
    Nothing compares to the view and peacefulness of this location. The scenery is show-stopping, and the big picture window in the kitchen/diner means an amazing backdrop for breakfast and dinner. Plenty of visitors - Scottish crossbill, deer in the evening, the cows and the highland ponies. Great walking and running routes right from the front door. Cottage décor was a little dated (hence 4*) but everything was clean and worked. Open fire is an added bonus making for cosy evenings. Overall... we loved it and would be back in a heartbeat.
    Mrs Johnstone - July 2017
    Torran Cottage is perfectly situated at a river and surrounded by beautiful mountains. It takes about 20 min to get to the next village and beside a few hikers every day there are no other people. Exactly what we were looking for. And the cottage itself is comfortably and cosy and there is everything you need.
    Ms Werner - May 2017
    This is a repeat visit to a cottage that is truly an oasis - three miles up a track, in a glen with views of mountains and a loch. Tumbling waterfalls are all around as are herds of deer, roaming in the gloaming and wandering in the morning. Whilst the cottage might be regarded as a little old fashioned, it is fully equipped, and totally of its environment. I wouldn't change a thing, although I did take a few extra bits of equipment, such as a radio and some kitchen stuff, but it wasn't necessary - merely a personal indulgence. It is vital to take binoculars to capture all the wild life that is in abudance, if you are patient and can stand still for minutes at a time. Walking is everywhere, from the front door to the tops of the hills and the glen. There is little need to escape the valley; but if you do, then Kinlochewe and Torridon are a few miles either way down the main road - a single track for much of the way. Beyond Torridon is Sheildaig, where you'll find the Coastal Kitchen, and another cafe, both excellent, as is Torridon Inn for meals. Going the other way to Kinlochewe and beyond, you'll find Badachro off the road to Gairloch and there you'll find the Badachro Inn, another excellent hostelry.
    Dr Mowbray - April 2017
    3 étoiles seulement parce que nous n'avions pas compris que cette location était très isolée et très difficile d'accès avec environ 10 minutes de pistes plus ou moins caillouteuses. Il vaut mieux avoir un 4x4 pour espérer ne pas abîmer sa voiture et aussi très peu de passing places pour se croiser , nous avons été deux ou trois fois coincés avec une voiture en face mais comme les Ecossais sont très gentils ils ont reculés pour laisser passer les pauvres français que nous sommes ! Sinon à partir de la location nous sommes allés sur l île de Sky un peu loin , et au Loch Ness. Nous recommandons le restaurant "Ness Deli" où nous avons très bien déjeuné avec des produits frais et maison et aussi un petit-déjeuner délicieux dans un petit café au bord de la route " Whistle stop cafe" vers Torridon TRANSLATION : 3 star only because we did not realize that this location was very isolated and very difficult to access with about 10 minutes of more or less stony slopes. It is better to have a 4x4 to hope not to spoil his car and also very few passing places to cross, we were two or three times stuck with a car in front but as the Scots are very nice they have moved back to let pass The French poor that we are! Otherwise from the hiring we went on Sky Island a little far, and to Loch Ness. We recommend the restaurant "Ness Deli" where we had lunch with fresh and homemade products and also a delicious breakfast in a small café by the road "Whistle stop cafe" towards Torridon
    Mr Benoit - August 2016
    Fantastic cottage in a breathtaking location. It was our first time to Torran cottage, but not our last we have booked again for next year for 2 weeks. Highly recommended it!!
    Mrs Stevens - August 2016
    Lovely cottage in a great location. Planned works in area hardly noticeable over course of day. Equipped adequately and great to have a decent freezer as we took food to last us the week. Only improvements we would suggest - two new armchairs as one was really wobbly and neither were comfortable to sit in for any length of time, the sofa could do with being changed too as a bit sagging. The location is excellent for dog walking but be aware of livestock in area as there were cows with youngsters while we were there so gave them a wide berth and obviously don't let your dog be a nuisance in any way to livestock. If you don't like ferocious midgies and horse flies this cottage is probably not for you! You really do need good protection some days if you want to stand a chance of being in the garden and not bitten continuously. However when you see the beautiful landscape around you and enjoy the quiet it's worth it! The road to the cottage is "interesting", slow down and take care and it's fine. We have a Renault Scenic but probably wouldn't have wanted much lower ground clearance. The walks in the area are great and there is an easy circular walk right from the cottage. Didn't miss having a TV and a pay phone gives reassurance in event of emergencies as there is absolutely no phone signal. It's blissful to be cut off from the mad world outside the estate. We would return in a heart beat to this lovely property.
    Mrs Paton - June 2016
    Torran Cottage lies about three miles off the main road near Torridon on the Coulin Estate. It is up a glen and it's nearest neighbour is about half a mile across the glen. It is the place to go to completely relax, as the only signal is a particular spot in the kitchen that catches radio 4, and all other noises are normally wind, wildlife and the crackle of the logs on the fire. This is a single storey cottage of traditional croft design extended to include a kitchen/eating area with panoramic views across to Loch Clair. Everything you need is there, plenty of hot water, cozy fire, all the equipment to cook anything. It is a place to make you feel blistfully happy and relaxed, with two double bedrooms, a single room, two bathrooms and reception room, all with views of the Red Deer when they descend at night, and walkers as they go on the path around the Loch and up into the hills. We try to go to Torran Cottage at least each year and would buy it if we could. It is an oasis away from a busy life, providing another kind of busyness - walking, exercising dogs, looking at the cattle, watching for birds, photographing the deer, reading, taking in the view, catching up with gossip, almost everything that is squeezed out of normal working life. It's a restorative cottage, with magical charms all of its own! Locally, there is everything to enjoy, from brilliant food in Sheldaig (Coastal Kitchen), at Badachro ( Badachro Inn) at Torridon (Torridon Inn and Hotel) and lots more, to brilliant walks. Never a dull moment.
    Dr Mowbray - October 2015
    As always a very comfortable cottage with friendly people in an amazing location
    Mrs Sanger- Davies - October 2015
    5star excellent!
    Mrs Sanger- Davies - September 2015
    I can't complain about the surroundings within which Torran is set. The wildlife and scenery were amazing. A great place to "get away from it all" boasting neither TV nor mobile phone signal; a refreshing change in modern society. The staff were utterly delightful and so willing to help and pass on their local knowledge. The cottage itself is cosy but dated. It lacks for nothing in terms of utensils but the cooker really could do with being updated.
    Mrs Cormell - July 2015
    Fabulous setting, Cottage very comfortable and log fire very welcome.
    Mrs Richards - May 2015
    This was our sixth visit to the Coulin estate and once again we were not disappointed. The cottage offers tranquility and a space to recharge the batteries, the views are quite simply stunning and the whole ambiance of the setting is superb.
    Mrs Morrison - April 2015
    Although the weather required protective clothing, Torran is the most fabulous retreat. Tranquil, yet full of tame and wild life, with hikers braving the elements and herds of deer arriving at night. It's such a cozy place too, with an open fire, augmenting efficient heating. Such a delightful place to stay and recuperated from a more hectic life elsewhere.
    Dr Mowbray - October 2014
    We've walked past Torran Cottage many times over the years, and this was our second opportunity to stay. We simply love the location, the cottage and the guys who run the Estate. Everything is perfectly set up for tranquillity mixed with adventure. WE know the Torridon and Gairloch area well, and each year there are new places to eat, and new places to explore. The standard of restaurants and cafe's has risen year on year, with many winning national awards in the hospitality business. This part of Scotland can expect mixed weather as well as the extremes, all within hours of each other. Our week was a mixture, but it doesn't stop the adventures. Returning to the Cottage after a day out is magic. Settling in front of the fire for a good read is heaven. Looking out and seeing the deer arriving for their evening stroll is wonderful. We'd stay much longer if we could.
    Dr Mowbray - June 2014
    Can never tire of staying here. So comfortable and relaxing, fabulous views, wildlife right outside the door (golden eagle one evening!)
    Mrs Richards - May 2014
    Our 7th stay at Toran Cottage, and had a fantastic time as ever.
    Mr Hudson - May 2014
    It was our seventh visit and it never disappoints . We had fab weather and did a lot of walking. It is such a friendly place with Simon and Neil always ready for a chat . And that's makes a big difference when you don't see anyone else.
    Mrs Mccluskey - October 2013
    We've stayed at Torran cottage on a number of occasions but this as our first visit for about three years and it really was a pleasure to be back. Very comfortable accomodation, a fabulous location and lots to do in the great outdoors.
    Mr Ripley - August 2013
    We feel we have been searching for this cottage all our lives. It encapsulates all we need for perfect restoration from a busy professional life. Perfect location, easy to get to, well designed cottage, plenty of space, well equipped if dated. All excellent.
    Dr Mowbray - April 2013
    Stayed in the farmhouse in May/June this year so I knew what I was coming to. Not disappointed - the cottage is really comfortable with all you would need. Pity about the road to it,but it does guarantee seclusion! Some dog owners should be a bit more careful - I have the flea bites to prove it. My weather for the week was not very good with a couple of days of heavy rain but the cottage made up for it and the open fire was a blessing - had it on every night1. .Great place to be!!
    Mr Anderson - September 2012
    Five stars for tranquility and peace, and a wonderfull cottage, but - it's 2012 - we realy missed internet connection as we had no mobil service. So we end up with four stars.
    Mr Toustrup - August 2012
    Torran cottage is in a remote highland location that ensures spectacular scenery that is constantly changing. Without TV or mobile phone coverage it may be the definition of hell for some, but for the rest of us Torran Cottage is the perfect "get it away from it all" location to spend with family and pets. Simon and Neil from the Estate are the perfect hosts, always around if you need them, but always in the background. Carron Restaurant at Strathcarron and The Bistro at Lochcarron are great places to eat, either for a snack, lunch or an evening meal. Plockton, Inverewe Gardens and Applecross are all fantastic days out.
    Mr Englefield - June 2012
    My Dutch best friend and I had a fantastic week at Torran ...the weather ,the scenery, the majesty of the Coulin Estate were just fantastic and what a contrast to the landscape of her native Holland. Hundreds of photographs and Videos to keep the memories to the fore. Neil and Simon were great in ensuring that were were happy in the cottage and were very enthusiastic about answering our many questions about managing the estate. The whole week was just bliss and such a wonderful ambasador for our Beautiful Scotland.Truely a Scottish holiday-Perfection.!!!
    Mrs Walczynska - April 2012
    Lovely cottage but didn't like the track to the cottage
    Mrs Carey - April 2012
    Torran Cottage continues to be one of our favorite places to stay despite the midges, the landscape and remoteness make it a wonderful location.
    Mr Hoskins - September 2011
    We had a week in this charming cottage. Beautiful everchanging views and weather. Relaxing and comforting. Would go back tomorrow if we could.
    Mr Wex - August 2011
    An amazing spot and a lovely little cottage. Everything we needed was there, with plenty of firewood and lots of little attention to detail like spare washing up gloves etc. The estate manager was very helpful indeed and quick to respond. There were some signs of a mouse problem so the use of mouse detterents of some sort might be an idea, although we didn't see anything.
    Mrs Hobbs - August 2011
    Fantastic. Clean. Lots of fuel supplied for the open fire. Breathtaking views in surrounding mountains. Be aware that it can rain a lot. Midges can be nasty but only if no wind. Very welcoming and caring housekeeper. TV not needed at all! Please leave it TV-free!
    Mr Priesemann - August 2011
    We have stayed at Torran cottage three times and love its peaceful location and stunning views. It is a real get away from it all place and there are great walks from the doorstep and a short drive away.
    Mrs Lang - July 2011
    Heavenly, We all agreed that Torran Cottage was the best rented accomodation we have ever had. Lovely, comfortable cottage with a homely feel- and what a view. We were blessed with the best weather we have ever had in Scotland. We both work in nature conservation and it was fantastic to see all the work that the landowners are doing to look after their estate. Simon, Neil and Gillian were brilliant. I hope we'll be back sometime. Thank you.
    Mr Jones - April 2011
    We have beeen going to Torran for close on 40 years. We took our first child aged one in 1973 and last year 2010 our first grandchild at the age of one and been most years in between. We love the place the cottage, the setting the hills, lochs and sea. The Estate is a great example of private stewardship of some of Scotland's most valuable environment by the owner and his staff who by their progressive approach keep this place special yet accessible. If you love the outdoors and a quiet place to read when not out and about Torran fits the bill. On a practical note the chairs in the sitting room are pretty but uncomfortable. They are of the "sit up and beg" design not at all comfortable after half an hour and a days walking. We have mentioned this before but nothing has beeen done. We would love it if these chairs could be replaced with something a bit easier.
