Bay at Little Sand

This photograph provides a view from the beach of Big Sand, near Gairloch, across to the hills of Torridon.

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 the area includes some of the west coast's highest and most striking mountains, including Liathach (3461 feet), Beinn Eighe (3,367 feet) and Beinn Dearg (2,998 feet). Each of these mountains is spaced widely apart and have been likened to castles. The mountains in the image, seen from left to right, are: Beinn an Eoin; Baosbheinn; Beinn Dearg, beyond; and Beinn Bhreac.
