Torridon - punches above its weight. Jul 28, 2010
Torridon is a very small village. Yet it has given its name to Torridonian sandstone, a rock that gives rise to the most wonderful scenery in mountains, cliffs and islands. I personally reckon the Torridonian Mountains come first equal with the Coolin of the Isle of Skye for beauty and grandeur in the UK. No doubt most people reading this will find the height of UK mountains unimpressive but, believe me, many, many people from countries with far higher mountains have been impressed by the scenery here.

The village lies to the north of Inner Loch Torridon but the name is often understood to cover Annat on the south side as well. The scenic mountain of Lathach with a wonderful (bu walkable) ridge towers above the village and Bein Alligin and Beinn Eigh are also close on one side of Glen Torridon with Beinn Damph and Bein na ha Eaglaise on the other.
