The Torridon area in the north west of Scotland has some of the most spectacular scenery with a number of stunning mountains. The mountain in the image above is Liathach with Beinn Eighe seen partially on the right.
Liathach is one of the most famous of the Torridon Hills. It lies to the north of the A896 road and has two peaks of Munro status: Spidean a’ Choire Leith at the east of the main ridge, and Mullach an Rathain at the western end of the mountain. The name Liathach means ‘The grey one’. Liathach conveys an aura of impregnability when seen from the roadside below, as the slopes appear to rise up in a series of near vertical rocky terraces
