A trip to Torridon, Friday Feb 19, 2010

A prospect of Loch Maree from the top of Glen Dochart


Ben Eighe above Kinlochewe


Ben Eighe from Glen Torridon


First view of Liathach


Looking west down Glen Torridon


Sgurr Dubh (the Black Peak, but not today) by Loch Clair


Nearing Liathach


Ben Eighe from the south, steaming gently in the shun


Torridon village . . .





. . . on Loch Torridon




A view of Liathach and Torridon Village from the south shore



Ben Alligin next door.


On the road to Sheildaig . . .


. . . the loch is a mirror.


Looking back to Liathach


Sheildaig from the road to Applecross


And a last Loch Torridon panorama . . .







Farewell to Liathach


Climbing the Bealach na Ba (the Pass of the Cattle) out of Applecross


Approaching the summit of the pass at 2000ft . . .


. . . revealing an awesome panorama of the West Highland peaks




From the summit the road switchbacks down to sea level at Loch Kishorn . . .




A final glance over the shoulder at the huge Cioch buttress


Leaving the coast and heading up Glen Carron towards home . . .


. . . in the glen just beyond these hills.
