Inver Alligin and Liathach from Culdarroch

This postcard shows Inver Alligin, a township on the north shore of Upper Loch Torridon, with the Liathach mountain ridge at the head of the loch. Culdarroch is a part of Inver Alligin. The area is one of outstanding scenic beauty and popular with hill walkers, photographers, geologists and naturalists.

The Liathach ridge rises to a height of 1,054m (3,456ft) at its highest point. It belongs to the Torridon group of mountains, one of the highest ranges in Britain and reputed to be among the oldest in Europe. The hills are formed mainly of Torridonian sandstone, with some exhibiting a topping of white quartzite and boulders of Lewisian Gneiss at the base. Other mountains in the range are Beinn Alligin (985 metres, 3,230 feet) and the nine peaks of Beinn Eighe, which rises to 1010 metres (3,313 feet) at Ruadh-stac Mor. Much of the land in the area belongs to the National Trust for Scotland which runs a visitor centre at Torridon.
