What's new in the Torridon area
Check back here regularly for news and events from the Torridon area.
The Rechullin Golf Course
Golf course may be a bit of an exaggeration , i like to call it a "pitch and pitch" as the greens are not really putting quality. It's quite a tough little course, but it's probably the most scenic 9 hole course in Scotland. Expect to lose a few balls in the many burns!
A scorecard and course map , with local rules can be found in the photo gallery and pro-tips , how to best play the course are available. Free use for guests at Rechullin, non residents can send a text to arrange to play if they agree to make a donation towards the upkeep of the course.
The current course record is 5 over par for 18 holes.
Not usually playable during winter months.
The Fisherman's Bothy
The old boathouse on the shore is being upgraded and may be available to rent at some point in the future - check here for the latest news or on Airbnb under "Fisherman's Bothy, Rechullin".
Photo's of the Bothy can be viewed in the phtoto gallery.
The Diamond Bothy
An old byre near the upper house is currently being converted for bothy use. It's not quite ready for letting yet (although i have been using it!) , but we are excited about it's potential. Progress will be documented here and photo's will be added to the gallery in due course.
Walk HIghlands website
Lower Rechullin is normally listed on Walk Highlands, but for an experiment we are not listed at the moment.
Lower Rechullin is available to book via Airbnb, where you can see the dates available online, but Airbnb do take a sizeable commission, so prices are more expensive but you have the convenience of instant book and paying by credit card.

This annual Event takes place every year in mid June. June can be a busy time for bookings. The Celtman is usually on a Saturday which is normally changeover day for most holiday lets. Be prepared to book early to avoid disappointment. It may not be possible to accommodate dates that straddle that weekend, to allow longer lets.
The 2023 Celtman is currently scheduled to run on the 17th June and the house is usually booked a year in advance for this event.
The NC500 Coastal route passes by Torridon and as a result short term bookings are very popular in the area. Increased visitors to the area and Covid restrictions means that you must book if you plan to eat out to avoid disappointment. We will try our best to accommodate any short stays of 5 days or more, or try and find you alternate B & B accommodation.
