This area (the whole Torridon mountains area) is perhaps my favourite place on earth. It is glorious, and I go several times a year and never tire of it! The drive through Glen Torridon, then over to Shieldaig, or round through Torridon village and on to Diabaig, or back to Kinlochewe and up to Gairloch..... oh just everything! (And the... More

Torridon has some of the most amazing scenery at high and low level. Whether you are walking in the valley (with your dog) or climbing Sgurr Dubh or whatever, there is something for all tastes.

A walkers/mountaineers paradise with some of Scotland's most impressive scenery. Remote but unforgettable.

An absolutely stunning drive, well worth a visit. Beautiful views over the lochs and mountains with lots of places to stop and take pictures. We were blessed with the weather but even in bad weather it is worth a visit.

This is a mystical and wondrous location. The magic of the Highland starts ever so slowly upon you and soon you find yourself rapt. It was never on my list. I am about ready to throw my list away.

Just what we expected and hoped for in the Scottish Highlands - imposing mountains, huge lochs dotted with little islands, occasional forests, all observed from a single track road with passing places and courteous fellow motorists. Heavenly!

The last time we visited Scotland we only drove through Glen Torridon - and took plenty of pictures. This time we stayed a while longer and went up Ben Eighe (Ruadh-Stac Mor & Spidean Coire nan Clach). It is without a doubt one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever done. The views from Ben Eighe are absolutely amazing.... More

In my opinion, this the most stunning landscape on the Scottish mainland. Also best observed when the weather is changing and there is a storm on the rise. Just stop, listen, watch and enjoy it.

The mountains are big here rising up some 3500 feet straight from sea level. The grandeur and scale is beyond compare. A drive through the glen is a must if you are in this neck of the woods, both ways up and down. Regardless of the weather it is an impressive place.

I have travelled through this area a few times, and it never disappoints, its stunning in all weather, very dramatic, I hope to spend longer this year, a great place for mountain climbing and photography.
