Key Places - The Wild West
10 Day: Guided: Road Bike
The area of Torridon encompasses Upper Loch Torridon, and regions to the west and north towards Kinlochewe where you will find some of Scotland's most magnificent mountains. On the north eastern shore of the upper loch the village of Torridon sprawls along the shoreline. Until the 1950s it was known as Fasag. In the 19th Century the tenants of these communities were badly affected by the clearances at the hands of landowner Colonel McBarnet who’d made his fortune on plantations in the West Indies. In the village you can visit the National Trust for Scotland's Torridon Countryside Centre and Deer Museum.
Beinn Allign, Liathach and Beinn Eighe mountains - the Torridon Giants - rise around 1,000 metres from sea level to their peaks amongst a scenery of glens and lochs. There are as many as 46 munros in the area. Highland cattle and red deer graze the moors. Pine martens or otters can be spotted at the loch side or on the water. These ancient sandstone peaks and lochs create a rugged, raw scenery that is a delight for nature lovers, offering challenging terrain biking and breath-taking scenery.
