Torridon is on the west coast of Scotland, 100+ miles north of Fort William and 80 miles west of Inverness. Situated in an area well known to climbers, photographers, wildlife enthusiasts, hikers, and countless visitors from around the world, the surrounding mountains rise almost vertically to 3500 feet from the deep sea lochs.
The loch is surrounded by numerous mountains to the north, including Liathach, Beinn Alligen and Beinn Eighe, all of which are over 3000 feet in height. Specifically, they are:
  • Liathach
  • Beinn Eighe
  • Beinn Alligin
  • Beinn Dearg

Hills between Glen Torridon and Strath Carron share much of the splendour and character of the main hills, although perhaps less of the drama:

  • Beinn Liath Mhòr
  • Sgorr Ruadh
  • Maol Cheann-dearg
  • Beinn Damh
  • An Ruadh-stac
  • Fuar Tholl
