Exquisite cuisine, stunning location, intimate dining experience
1887 restaurant gets it’s name from the year the hotel was built, when it was a shooting lodge to the Earl of Lovelace. Following a redesign in February 2020, 1887 exudes contemporary elegance and is located in the hotel itself. The Scot’s pine panelled dining room and conservatory is the perfect place to enjoy exquisite food in an intimate location.
Chef Paul Green and his team offer innovative British cuisine which is prepared using fresh produce from The Torridon Farm, Kitchen Garden and surrounding land and lochs. Our belief in field to fork is at the heart of everything that we do and working with the seasons means the menu is always changing and evolving.
Paul believes in keeping it simple and letting the flavour and provenance of the food do the talking. It is his appreciation of those ingredients and the larder that Scotland has to offer, that really showcases the passion Paul has for cooking. Our menu changes all the time with the seasons and productivity from our kitchen garden.
Head Chef Paul Green says:
“Throughout the spring and summer months, we use a lot of our own vegetables and local fish, creating a lighter menu. The autumn provides seasonal game in the larder and pickling, smoking and curing techniques to the produce, create a richer dining experience in the winter”
Dinner reservations can be made through our booking pages and all availability is shown online. Please note that 1887 Restaurant is closed on Mondays.

Ben Damph House took 20 years to build, which began in the 1860’s and was finally completed in 1887.
William King-Noel, the first Earl of Lovelace, built this hunting lodge in 1887. Lovelace was an English landowner, Lord Lieutenant of Surrey and a distinguished scientist. He gains a footnote in history for marrying Lord Byron’s only legitimate daughter, Ada, a pioneering ‘poetical scientist’ who assisted Charles Babbage in understanding and writing the first computer program. She also developed a vision on the capability of computers to go beyond mere calculating or number-crunching while others, including Babbage himself, focused only on those capabilities. The Torridon is a good example of the kind of Scottish holiday home that the English nobility enjoyed after Queen Victoria made the Highlands of Scotland “respectable” again.
The original entrance was through the Dining Room until the addition of the clock tower. In order to build the house all materials had to be shipped in by boat and even the soil in the kitchen garden was brought over from Ireland. The house was built during the 50th year of Queen Victoria’s Reign and you will notice that the Hall and Eilean Chasgaig Room (the Dining Room) are dedicated to her. You will see that the Drawing Room has an unusual Zodiac ceiling, again another tribute to Queen Victoria who was fascinated by astrology.
The wilderness surrounding The Torridon is classified as a ‘Bortle 1 or 2 location’.
This means that The Torridon is amongst the darkest locations on earth making rich views of the Milky Way and thousands of stars possible.
