Inveralligin Youth Hostel and Loch Torridon

This postcard shows the old Inveralligin Youth Hostel looking over Loch Torridon to the Ben Damph Forest. Handwritten notes at the foot of the photograph indicate that the building on the left is the main hostel and the one on the right is dormitories. This hostel has now been closed and there is a new 4-star hostel at the head of Upper Loch Torridon.

Inveralligin is a township on the north shore of Upper Loch Torridon, beneath Beinn Alligin (3230 feet, 985 metres). The river Torridon flows through Glen Torridon into Upper Loch Torridon, which leads in turn into Loch Torridon. The area is one of outstanding scenic beauty and popular with hill walkers, photographers, geologists and naturalists. Much of the land in the area belongs to the National Trust for Scotland which runs a visitor centre at Torridon.
