Stag Weekends: Red Deer Drama on the Torridon Hills

Red Deer StagThe rugged glory of Torridon is enhanced in autumn by the roaring of red deer stags on the mountainsides. September and October offer among the best times of year to visit this part of the Highlands and to get a real feeling for nature at its wildness, in the landscape and in its wildlife.

The excitement is played out on the slopes of Liathach, above Torridon village, as the stags let each other know they have established their territory. Farther afield, in the corries and glens of the mountain ranges, this contest is acted out with fervour, for the next generation of red deer is in the making.

There is even evidence of our stag drama on the flatlands at Torridon Mains, where you can walk along the shoreline with good views to the hills and view the red deer in the National Trust deer park.
