Head to the wild west for day out

Home > Explore > Torridon

Torridon is a village in the west Highlands that also gives its name to the loch and the area.

It’s a small village typical of those on the west coast, that doesn’t have much in the way of shops or activities, but acts as a great destination for exploring the wilderness of the west.

To the south is the Applecross peninsula, to the north is the wilderness of the Beinn Eighe Nature reserve, Loch Maree and Gairloch.

The Torridon area is a substantial drive from Forres, but the journey though Garve, Achnasheen and Kinlochewe is an experience in itself, weaving through mountains and glens, eventually reaching the western shore.

Top tip: Look out for Callum the friendly stag who has taken up residence in a walkers car park.
