The Torridon Mountain & Sea Festival in the Scottish Highlands is back for its third year and is taking place from Thursday 27th to Sunday 30th September.
The festival was established by the owners of The Torridon Resort, Dan & Rohaise Rose-Bristow, with the aim of giving visitors three days of the very best that Scotland can offer.
And with the festival being held in late September, expect to see autumnal colours while you take part in all kinds of adventurous activities and scoff down local produce, Scottish ale while listening to live music.
Try sea kayaking, munro bagging, mountain biking or landscape photography with experts; there are plenty of things to try from this list here.
Or you can have a more relaxed weekend and sample Scottish ales from the Isle of Skye Brewery and dance to the music of the Mystic Shoes, the rhythms of Ho-Ro or rock to the fiery and passionate Schiehallion.
In addition, on the Thursday there will be a seven-course tasting menu to savour from The Torridon Hotel’s restaurant 1887. Dishes such as Highland beef tartare with foraged ransom, Torridon-grown kohlrabi, fermented leek and home-bred cured ham or locally-sourced monkfish with year-old-onion.
On the Saturday you can treat yourself to gin tasting with Persie Distillery, well-known for their scents including zesty citrus, aromatic herbs and vanilla almonds. Or if whisky’s your thing, The Torridon’s whisky connoisseur Piotr can talk you through the many single malts the hotel has on the Sunday.
The Torridon Mountain & Sea Festival package costs £187.50pp (two sharing), £375 total for two people and includes two nights accommodation at The Torridon Inn, daily breakfast, packed lunches and one wilderness activity.
We stayed in The Torridon last year and you can read all about what it’s like here.
