Liathach, Beinn Eighe and Glen Torridon

This photograph shows the Torridon mountains, Liathach on the left and the massive bulk of Beinn Eighe on the right. The western half of Beinn Eighe’s ridge contains both of its classified Munro peaks. The mountains are primarily composed from Torridonian sandstone and are some of the west coast's most striking peaks.

In 1951, the Beinn Eighe range became Britain’s first National Nature Reserve (NNR). It was created primarily to preserve ancient Caledonian pinewood and extended over 48 square kilometres. In April 2014 Scottish Natural Heritage merged the Beinn Eighe Reserve and the Loch Maree Islands Reserve to form the Beinn Eighe and Loch Maree Islands National Nature Reserve.
