From Sea to Peak


From sea level on Upper Loch Torridon, and its village of the same name, to the 4000ft summits of the Torridon Range and the slopes of Liathach.

It is wild and magical location.  Often a wonderful place to see Golden Eagles soaring above the peaks. Sadly, not showing on the day we last visited.  Also, a memorable place for me. It was my first introduction, at 17, to climbing in “real” Mountains…rather overwhelming.  Thankfully, I had two experienced friends to provide support and advice.  4 days later the three of us were on the Cuillin Ridge on Skye, another extremely dramatic first.

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
