Scottish Natural Heritage has just published a map showing where Scotland’s wild land is. And you may not be surprised to learn a large part of it surrounds us here in Torridon.
It may seem strange that wild land needs a map but otherwise how else can we protect it? And how can we help people find it when they want to get away from it all?
These wild parts of Scotland around us are the natural playground of our Torridon Activities Team. They take guests almost daily to explore the high mountain ranges, their heather clad slopes, the sea lochs and rivers and gentler walks along their banks.
As Stuart Brooks, chief executive of the John Muir Trust says, our wild places are a nationally important asset that need to be safeguarded.
At The Torridon, we always do our best to protect them while we also promote them as unique and precious environments.
