Torridon has some of the most challenging, remote and exhilarating Munros in Scotland.

Our expert guides can offer you an adventure to test your skills or something a little more relaxed; all with fantastic views of the glen. We aim to send you away from the weekend having had an experience to remember as well as giving you further knowledge and skills for you to put into use on your next day out.

Friday 28th September

Beinn Eighe (or Coire Mhic Fhearchair) – This is a challenging, long walk along a fantastic Torridon ridge. Known as ‘ice mountain’ in gaelic. Less technical that Liathach or Beinn Alligin but some fantastic views as well as descending through Coire Mhic Fhearchair and past the remains of a Lancaster Bomber that crashed into the rock in 1951. A long but rewarding walk with 2 munros.
7-9 hours
Fitness – 3+ Technical – 3

Beinn Damh (or Beinn Damh Loop) – The closest Corbett to The Torridon, this hill is great for those who want a slightly shorter, less exposed walk without sacrificing the scenery. There are also options to extend the walk by exploring the other tops along from the saddle. 4.5-6 hours

Beinn Alligin (Or Liathach Circular) – Meaning ‘mountain of beauty’ in Gaelic. This ridge walk has a steep start, but your efforts are rewarded by some amazing views across the glen and over to Skye. There is also the option of scrambling over the Horns of Alligin which although can feel relatively exposed, can be a great first scramble to the experienced walker. 5-7 hours Fitness – 3+, Technical – 3 (4 with Horns)

Maol Chean Dearg – Named ‘bald red head’ due to the red sandstone boulder on the summit this is another great walk that can be started either from The Torridon or from the other side near Achnashellach. As the walk ascends along the Coulags path from The Torridon, don’t forget to look behind for some fantastic views of Upper Loch Torridon. 5-7 hours. Fitness – 3, Technical – 3
