Hills of Torridon from Gairloch

This photograph provides of view of the hills of Torridon as seen from the Gairloch area, in Wester Ross. A rugged area of barren, rocky mountains and sea-lochs, it attracts hill walkers and climbers year round.

The mountains of Torridon are primarily composed from Torridonian red sandstone and include some of the west coast's highest and most striking mountains, including Liathach (3461 ft), Beinn Aighe (3,367 ft) and Beinn Dearg (2,998 ft). Each of these mountains is spaced widely apart and has been likened to castles in appearance. The mountains seen in the photograph, from left to right, are: Baosbheinn; Beinn Dearg, beyond; and Beinn Bhreac.
