Planning your visit

The road through Torridon is several miles long and there are designated car parks as well as many smaller places to stop and enjoy the views. Torridon is also on the North Coast 500 – one of the best road trip routes in the world.

Please be aware that the sections of single track road contain passing places to allow vehicles to pass, whether they are on-coming or from behind you if they are travelling faster. Stay on the left-hand side of the road and either go into the passing place if it’s also on the left, or stop opposite it, so that traffic can pass safely by.

The Countryside Centre is open from Easter until the end of September, six days a week (closed on a Saturday). Here, gifts, books and maps are on sale, and DVDs may be watched about the wildlife of the estate and loch.

The village of Torridon, also known as Fasag, has a community centre with arts and crafts on display and for sale.

The Torridon shop and café is a great place to relax with a coffee and snack.

Facilities & access

We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development. Detailed accessibility guides for the most visited Trust places are available on our Accessibility pages as well as links to useful resources.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.

Bike route

Well-behaved dogs are welcome everywhere on the estate, but please take care when other animals such as sheep and farm stock are encountered. Also, please be aware when walking along the seashore that birds could be nesting from early to late summer.
