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).
The countryside centre, which is near the village of Torridon, is open seasonally. Here you can pick up information about wildlife, walking routes and coastal paths.
Torridon has some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in Scotland – breathe in those views and vast open spaces. At the foot of the mountains, the upper shore of Loch Torridon is a peaceful spot to rest or picnic, while contemplating the awe-inspiring surroundings.
Torridon’s low-level walks also have much to offer and provide great views of the Highland landscape. The Two Corries walk takes you into a spectacular mountain pass between Liathach, Beinn Alligin, Beinn Dearg and Beinn Eighe.
The village of Torridon has a shop for essential supplies, a campsite and a youth hostel.
There are toilets in the village, 55m from the Countryside Centre.
