North-west Highlands Walking Tour
Hiking tour to Torridon and Sutherland, very remote and scenic parts of the Highlands of Scotland with many secret places undiscovered by most tourists.
If you love remote places, open moorland, spectacular mountains and a long coastline, this walking tour has it all. You'll walk in Wester Ross and Sutherland with three nights in Torridon and four nights in Scourie.Torridon and Applecross, Wester Ross
Torridon is a mecca for lovers of wild places. The sandstone mountains that give this district its reputation, are huge, brooding monoliths. The impressively gouged glacial trench Glen Torridon and Loch Torridon runs between these magnificent peaks, bordered by pinewoods and beautiful vistas, offering great coastal and mountain walks.
The Applecross peninsula is famous for Britain's most spectacular pass, the Bealach Na Ba. To the east of the pass are a series of dramatic ice-scraped corries while to the west the mountains gently slope down to the coast with both coral white and red sand beaches.
Northwest Sutherland is one of the most sparsely populated and yet hauntingly beautiful landscapes in Britain. It has a stark, eerie landscape and strange isolated mountains and deserted sparkling sandy beaches. The vast, undulating moorland on Lewisian Gneiss that could be three billion years old, is studded with a maze of a thousand fresh-water lochans. Up from this rise a series of remarkable mountains. These peaks are very steep and completely separate from one another. They are eroded into fantastic, individual shapes, making this one of the most memorable landscapes in Scotland. According to Norse legend, this was where the gods practised mountain building. They did it on a grand scale. Each hill is a set piece, a stand-alone, an island amongst islands.
The moorland, mountains and coast support a large variation of wild flowers, birds and mammals to enjoy during the walks. It is a stronghold for white-tailed and golden eagles with golden plovers and deer on the moors and during our coastal walks there is a chance to see dolphins and even whales.
