Following a trial over winter 2013-14, the Sportscotland Avalanche Information Service will again be issuing avalanche risk forecasts for the Torridon area in the upcoming winter season
A beautiful, cosy cottage with a magical view on the loch. Perfect location to explore the Wester Ross area and for outdoors activities. It was perfect, thank you again.”

We had a wonderful stay at Kathleen’s Cottage. The cottage looks fantastic on the website, but our stay was even better than expected. We have stayed in many holiday cottages over the years and this is one of the very best. Stunning location overlooking the Loch and across to the mountains. We were reciprocating hosting last year’s holiday we had in Germany led by friends of ours and had a lot to live up to. All of Scotland was magnificent, but our time at Kathleen’s Cottage was especially memorable. Everything you would want was available, a superbly stocked kitchen, a range of local guide books and some really tasteful personal touches in its decoration. The local scenery ain’t too bad either! We will be back and I suspect there may be some additional enquiries from Germany when our friends share their photos with their family and friends.”

Four of us stayed at Kathleen's Croft for a week and it was the perfect base for our trip. Amazing access to Munro's and sea kayaking and such a clean and cozy place to come back to with everything we could need for cooking/drying clothes etc. We will definitely be back."

Kathleen’s Croft is a beautiful house, with stunning views of the Torridonian mountains. It’s spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The house was very warm and comfortable. It’s ideal for a dog, with an enclosed garden and internal stair gate. Val and John were easily contactable in the run up to our stay, and very helpful when we forgot the key safe code. They left a welcome pack for our arrival, which was very thoughtful . The house is very well placed for walks in the local area, and is a short walk from the Torridon hotel which we would recommend for drinks and food. We’ll hopefully be back soon!”

Hi Val, Thank you so much for letting us stay in your gorgeous cottage over New Year.We had an excellent time and will certainly be recommending the cottage which we all felt was even nicer than it looked n the website. Once again, thanks for your hospitality, and Happy New Year!”

We had a terrific week at your cottage which is easily the best we’ve stayed at in recent trips to Scotland.”

Hi Val, Kathleen’s Croft was absolutely superb – as was our weather! Thanks very much.”

We really enjoyed our stay at Kathleen's Croft. The cottage is very well equipped, extremely cosy (with plentiful hot water) and has amazing views out onto the loch and the mountains. There is a pub and also a shop close by and lots of walks in the local area. We would definitely love to come back. Thanks."

We have had a lovely stay at Kathleen's Croft. Very cosy and warm. Very grateful for the wonderful Christmas decorations and little treats. We have stayed at other cottages locally but this one is BY FAR the best. Thank you very much, we will definitely be back in the spring/summer."

This was my second trip to Scotland and my very first to the northern highlands. Torridon is a truly, remote and beautiful area surrounded by incredible scenery.
Kathleen's Croft was everything we expected, cosy, warm and tastefully furnished. The welcome gift of wine and biscuits was very much appreciated.
Every window offered views to the Loch and mountains and my son soon occupied the little viewing area upstairs which he called his office. A place to download photos every night.
I was hoping to light the log burners but alas it wasn't cold enough ha ha.
We loved Shieldaig where we enjoyed lunch at Nannys.
This was the area where we saw our only sighting of Sea Eagles as well as seals.
Despite the unpredictable weather we managed to walk everyday. The most memorable walk was to the Triple Buttress, a fine low level walk offering breathtaking views.
Tesco delivered our weekly supplies which was ideal as not everything can be purchased locally. We did however buy a number of items from the Torridon stores whilst enjoying their cafe.
Not too many places to eat locally unless we wanted to drive a few miles so apart from a meal at the Torridon, not the posh restaurant and several lunches taken elsewhere, we ate in the cottage.
Our experiences of this part of Scotland will always remain with us and we hope to come back again in the future despite travelling over 700 miles to get here. It was worth it!!! Thank you Val."

We absolutely loved your cottage....wonderful style, great taste and perfect location.Seeing a stag just outside the front garden in breaking dawn was a highlight...made more exciting when a pine martin ran across your wall...I thought I was dreaming."
Neil and Anne, June 2016
We really enjoyed our stay and the cottage is as always cosy and homely place to stay, what a lovely location and views."
Sara, May 2016
Thank you very much for a fantastic week in your beautiful cottage. We have been to Torridon many times and it was a lovely place to enjoy it from. It was very homely and we were able to totally relax and enjoy this beautiful setting. "

A brief note to say a very large thank you for Kathleen's Croft. A superb cottage and immaculately presented, please pass our thanks to Lisa; and of course in an absolutely brilliant setting with views across the Loch, herons, mountains that beckon - and an easy walk to the pub. We had the full menu (!) of late March weather but still managed 3 mountains days, one coastal bog trot and 2 days as tourists....so back to work for a rest! Many thanks."
Gavin, March 2016
I'm so pleased Kathleen's croft is available. It is by far the best cottage we've stayed in at Torridon. Roll on the summer holidays and thanks Val"
Linzi, April 2016
Returned to this truly idyllic cottage in October - yet again blessed with glorious weather all week. This has become our favourite place to be - the perfect mixture of a wonderful warm and welcoming cottage with stunning scenery, walks, wildlife and food (our christmas smoked trout came from the Applecross Smokery!). We will be back!"
Jonny, November 2015
A very comfortable old and quaint cottage near Torridon village that is very quiet, has all the modern amenities including wi-fi for those of us who want to keep in touch, great self-catering facilities, good eating out restaurants in the area and has loch fishing, both sea and fresh water close by. Superb walks and mountain climbing all around."
Jack, Oct 2015
Once again a wonderful stay. Fantastic walks, fabulous food both at home and out, all in a beautiful location. The weather was on our side and we couldn't have had a better week in which to celebrate our 1st Wedding Anniversary. Thank you"
Beck and Douglas, September 2015
The Cottage was great; a great place to spend the week. The location really suited what we wanted to do on our visit also. We had a fantastic time! Many thanks.
Karla, Sept 2015.
Kathleen's Croft is just perfect. It is a beautifully situated house, tastefully decorated in Val's inimitable style. Fabulous walks, fishing and food all around - what more could we ask for? Cannot wait to return in October.
Charlotte and Jonny, June 2015
Love the cosy warm cottage, great views, great walks, great everything. Can't fault it. We don't want to go home!"
Carol, John, Gareth, and Gemma, April 2015
Just a quick note to let you know we had a wonderful time at Kathleen's Croft. The cottage is beautiful and very comfortable. We both found it very relaxing sitting by the fire with a gin and tonic after walking, exploring or taking a seaplane over Skye! We will definitely be back.
