Torridon, Fisherfield & Gairloch

Torridon is one of the UK’s premier outdoor areas, being home to several of the British mainland’s finest peaks; Liathach, Beinn Eighe and Beinn Alligin in particular. The quiet village of Torridon itself is nestled at the base of Liathach and the head of Loch Torridon, but the name also applies to the wider area and the lovely coarse red/brown sandstone that is such a feature of the mountains, Torridonian sandstone.

The Fisherfield area is north of Torridon and to the north of Loch Maree and is one of the most wild and remote areas of Britain with high mountains, deep glens and straths, lochs, rivers and few paths. An Teallach, on Fisherfield’s northern edge, is the most well known peak here. Gairloch and Poolewe are villages that form the heart of a string of coastal communities around Loch Gairloch, Loch Ewe and Gruinard Bay. There are beautiful beaches and coastal scenary here.
