Loch Torridon and Alligin

This is a picture of Beinn Alligin, a mountain north of Loch Torridon. The name Beinn Alligin is from the Scottish Gaelic meaning Jewelled Hill.

The mountain has two peaks of Munro status: Tom na Gruagaich (922 m) to the south, and Sgurr Mhòr (986 m) to the north.

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

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.
