Scene at Gairloch

This photograph shows a view from Big Sand Beach, near Gairloch, south across Loch Gairloch towards the Torridonian mountains. Gairloch, a village on the north-west coast of Ross and Cromarty, comes from the Gaelic for 'short loch' and is located on Flowerdale Bay, a sheltered inlet on the sea-loch, Loch Gairloch, which has been in the past, and still remains, an important anchorage on the coastline for fishing boats and yachts.

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 they have been likened to castles in appearance.
