About this place

Majestic mountain paradise for hikers, climbers, geologists and nature lovers

  • Calling all Munro-baggers! 5 of the Trust’s 46 Munros are found here.
  • Stop off at the hide by the loch, and maybe spot some otters fishing for their tea.
  • The Trust’s countryside centre is currently closed for a review and development of future plans, but it’s a great place to start a low-level walk around Torridon and the coast.
  • Take in the awe-inspiring landscape of Torridon as part of your North Coast 500 road trip.

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 of Scotland, Torridon is an ancient and enchanting wilderness of water and rock. The rugged mountains are incredibly old – the Torridonian sandstone that forms the bulk of all the mountains dates back 750 million years. On the west side of the estate the hilly and loch-strewn landscape is even older. Composed of Lewisian Gneiss, it’s over 2,600 million years old and it was the erosion of this land that provided the sediment, laid down in shallow seas, for the sandstone we know today.

Part of the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve is on the Torridon estate and, along with other designations, the estate 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’s an amazing choice of walking and climbing routes on the property, with over 18 miles of paths to choose from. Five of the Trust’s Munros are found here, including Liathach, peaking at 1,054m (3,456ft), and Beinn Alligin at 985m (3,230ft). These are each an adventure in themselves, but please make sure you are properly equipped before setting off.
