Torridon has long been a magnet for hikers and climbers, a place of majestic beauty and uncompromising terrain.

Considered by many to embody the North Highland landscape, Torridon is an ancient and enchanting wilderness of water and rock. The rugged mountains are incredibly old – the Torridonian sandstone on Beinn Alligin dates back 750 million years.

The Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve is part of the Torridon estate, which is highly designated and supports an impressive variety of flora and fauna, including important plant colonies, rare mosses and lichens, and the elusive pine marten and golden eagle.

There is an amazing choice of walking and climbing routes in this estate. Five of the Trust’s Munros are found here, including Liathach, peaking at 1,054m (3,456ft), and Beinn Alligin at 985m (3,230ft).
