The Torridon: Location, location… This Victorian former hunting lodge in the Scottish Highlands certainly has it, sitting in 58 acres of parkland on the edge of a glittering sea loch, encircled by moutains. What's inside isn't bad either, with cosy lounges and bars and exquisite food to suit your mood – fine dining or casual. You won't be short of things to do. The hotel can arrange adventures, such as taking a classic Morgan car for a spin around part of the North Coast

500. It's one of the most spectacula­r driving routes in the world, with sightseein­g enroute, like Dunrobin Castle with its gardens inspired by Versailles, and the woodland waterfalls of the Fairy Glen at Rosemarkie. Other options include munro baggings walks and stargazing with a qualified astronomer.

The night skies here are truly magical. thetorrido­n.com
