Torridon is one of the most spectacular areas in Scotland, whether you are viewing it from the car, or walking the unique mountains. It is characterised by the 1bn year old red Torridonian sandstone rock, which on the main hills is capped with Cambrian quarzite that appears almost snowlike in sunshine.
There is excellent walking right from the doorstep, or a few minutes drive if you want to climb one of the big Torridon Munros. The area is also renowned for its challenging mountain bike routes, road riding, sea kayaking and wild swimming. We are more than happy to advise on any of these activities as we have first hand experience of all of them.
A little further away is the stunning little village of Lower Diabeg by the head of Loch Torridon. In the other direction is Shieldaig beyond which are the roads over to Applecross including the famous Bealach na Ba, the steepest road in the UK. A little further away is Gairloch from where boats are available for trips to see seals, dolphins, whales and the seabird colonies of the Shiant Islands.
