Loch Torridon shore path

Loch Torridon splits into two sea lochs, Upper Loch Torridon and Loch Shieldaig.

Torridon (Scottish Gaelic: Toirbheartan) is a small village in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland. However the name is also applied to the area surrounding the village, particularly the Torridon Hills, mountains to the north of Glen Torridon.

Torridon is on the west coast of Scotland, 100+ miles north of Fort William and 80 miles west of Inverness. Situated in an area well known to climbers, photographers, wildlife enthusiasts, hikers, and countless visitors from around the world, the surrounding mountains rise almost vertically to 3500 feet from the deep sea lochs.

The loch is a glacial sea loch around 15 miles long. To the north are the villages of Red Point, Craig, Diabaig (Where the film Loch Ness was filmed), Wester Alligin and Alligin Shuas. To the south is Shieldaig. Loch Torridon is an important prawn and shellfish fishery and the Loch itself is also home to several Salmon farms and industrial mussel production.
