Gairloch Bay

A dramatic black and white view, looking south across Loch Gairloch towards the Torridonian mountains. Gairloch is a small crofting settlement located on the west coast of Ross and Cromarty. An active fishing community, today it also depends on the tourist trade. Yachts seek anchorage in the bay year round and the beach at Big Sand is one of the coastline's most stunning.

The mountains of Torridon, seen in the background, are primarily composed of 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). These mountains are spaced widely apart and have been likened to castles.
