One of the first things you will notice when visiting Torridon is the scale and grandeur of the mountains surrounding you. Look a little further though and you’ll spot hidden valleys, a gentle coastal path, distant islands and lots of wildlife.
The mountains of Liathach, Beinn Alligin and Beiinn Eighe dominate the skyline of Torridon’s landscape, but there are other Munros with dramatic appeal including Slioch (The Spear) which sits like a fortress towering over the Fisherfield wilderness. A summit walk that is hard fought, but always memorable.
Our stunning coastal path is also worthy of the spotlight providing views across to Raasay, Rona, Skye, and even the Outer Hebrides on a clear day. Look down from the cliffs or out from a secluded beach to see the rich tidal waters which attract seals, porpoise, otters and a variety of sea birds.
There is also an opportunity to see Torridon’s coast from a different perspective, by taking a boat trip across the Inner Sound to visit Rona. With only three habitations you will be able to relax in the solitude of this small island.
