Loch Torridon, from Inveralligin Youth Hostel

This postcard shows the view from the old Inveralligin Youth Hostel which overlooked Upper Loch Torridon. 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.
