You’ll find some of the best scenery in Scotland at Torridon. Despite being best known for its mountainous landscapes, there are opportunities for walks for all levels of ability, from paths that follow the seashore to upland paths that traverse the airy ridges of the mountains.

At the head of Loch Torridon, in the village of Fasag, a shore path takes you close to the open-air meeting place at Am Ploc. The people of Torridon built this in 1843 after the Disruption when the estate owners refused them permission to build a new church. Continue along the wide sweep of the bay – looking out for otters and other wildlife along the way – and then through Mains Farm. Here you’ll see red deer at close quarters in an enclosure, then carry on along the track to the countryside centre, back at the main road.

There’s also a grassy path through the hill park behind the community centre, which sets off beside the Torridon Mountain Rescue base and visits several sites which once formed part of the old townships that pre-date the present village.

For those feeling fit there are five Munros on the estate (mountains over 3,000ft/914m): two on Beinn Alligin, two on Liathach and one of the two on Beinn Eighe. These are each an adventure in themselves, but make sure you are properly equipped before setting off.
