Hiking in Torridon

Description 

The most remote area of Scotland to climb. The weather is often surprisingly sunny and dry, when more southern areas are dripping wet.


Getting There 

From the south head North up through Glen Coe, and passed Fort William and keep heading North along unforgettable North West coast.
