Torridon Mountains On Summer Visit To The North West Highlands Of Scotland

Tour Scotland Summer travel video, with Scottish music, of the Torridon Mountains on visit to the North West Highlands. The Gaelic name, Toirbheartan, is usually applied to the mountains to the north of Glen Torridon. They are among the most dramatic and spectacular peaks in the British Isles and made of some of the oldest rocks in the world. Many are over 3,000 feet high, so are considered Munros. The mountains have steep terraced sides, and broken summit crests, riven into many pinnacles. There are numerous steep gullies running down the terraced sides from the peaks. Mountain include; Liathach, Beinn Eighe, Beinn Alligin, Beinn Dearg and Baosbheinn. All photographs are copyright of Sandy Stevenson, Tour Scotland, and may not be used without permission.
