Looking towards Torridon

This photograph provides of view across Loch Gairloch towards Loch Shieldaig and the Torridonian mountains beyond. A rugged area of barren, rocky mountains and sea-lochs, it attracts hill walkers and climbers year round.

The mountains at Torridon are all composed primarily from Torridonian red sandstone and the area includes 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 are spaced widely apart and have been likened to castles. Baosbheinn (2917 ft) can be identified on the right hand side of the image, on the far shore of Loch Shieldaig.
