Torridon Giants Trek

Introduction to the Torridon Giants Trek

The Torridon Giants trekking holiday lets you experience this wild and remote area of North West Scotland from sea level to the highest summits! With guided walking and scrambling on Beinn Allign, Liathach and Beinn Eighe. We give you the opportunity to summit 6 Munros in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK. However, this area can offer even more than these outstanding mountains. So, we will combine these 3 big days of walking with 2 gentle days of exploring the local area. The gentle days include low level trekking, a visit to The Whistle Stop Café and a Shellfish Safari by boat. These days give you the opportunity to relax and recover while ensuring you still have the chance to immerse yourself fully in this special place.

Is the Torridon Giants Trek Right For Me?

The Torridon Giants Trek is an excellent introduction to scrambling and mountaineering in Scotland. The three “Giants” days are demanding and tiring walks, so a reasonable level of fitness will be required. However, since there are gentler days included within the week you will have chance to relax and recover in between the big days of walking. It is designed to be achievable by someone who is of a reasonable level fitness and ready to push themselves. Therefore we would recommend you have at least completed a long distance trek before, and ideally done some mountain walking before. This trek is also an excellent opportunity for the “Munro Baggers” to add 6 munros to their collection. Our schedule gives you the chance to really enjoy them in the way they deserve to be.

Day 1: Arrive in Torridon

This is your chance to get to the start of the holiday by making your way to Torridon. Since Torridon is a remote area, not surprisingly, it is tricky to get to using public transport and so we are offering a free transfer from Inverness to Torridon for anyone who needs it. Whether you are planning to get the bus, train or drive to Inverness you are very welcome to finish the last part of your journey to Torridon with us. Please do note that the transfer will take 1.5 hours and we will be leaving Inverness at 3pm. In the evening you will usually get a chance to meet the rest of your group as well as your guides at a local pub for a drink or two.

Day 2: Beinn Alligin

We will begin The Torridon Giants Trek with Beinn Alligin or “The Mountain of Beauty”. This certainly lives up to its name and this 10 kilometre trek will give you plenty of chance to explore Torridon’s most westerly mountain. This is the easiest of the giant walks, however, do not let that lure you into thinking this will be an easy day. The route goes over not one but two munros; Tom na Gruagaich and Sgurr Mor before a scramble over The Horns of Alligin. The full day has just under 1250m of ascent and will take approximately 6-8 hours. A perfect introduction to The Torridon Giants and a great way to gain some confidence in your scrambling skills.

Day 3: Shellfish Safaris & Beinn Eighe Nature Reserve Woodland Walk

Today is a gentle day where you'll get to enjoy some of the sunning woodland and coast around Torridon. We will begin by heading to the Beinn Eighe Nature Reserve (not to be confused with the day where we climb Beinn Eighe itself). A woodland walk and visitor centre inform and allow you to see one of the last remaining bastions of Scots Pine forest in the UK. These unique trees bring with them some brilliant bird and insect life. After our short walk through the trees we will carry on our journey to Gairloch, a remote fishing village. From here you can join a Shellfish Safari with a local producer who's family have been fishing the coast for generations and who's shellfish grace some of the finest restaurants in the UK. As part of the experience lunch is provided of langoustines, squat lobsters and dressed crab each with fresh bread and salad. To finish with we'll head back to the accommodation with stunning views of Loch Maree considered by some to be the most beautiful in Scotland.

Day 4: Beinn Eighe

Today we will be onto our second day of Torridon Giants and there is no denying that Beinn Eighe really is a giant! However, it is well worth the effort you will put in as you will be rewarded by some of the finest hillwalking in the UK. We will start by following a good path through Coire Dubh Mor to Loch Coire Mhic Fhearchair. This magical area has truly breath-taking scenery. It is perhaps best described as an amphitheatre of rock and a photographers dream. From here we will head up the first of today’s munros; Ruadh-stac Mor, the highest point on Beinn Eighe. Next we will follow the ridge line over to Spidean Coire nan Clach, our second munro of the day. Before descending down back to the road. At just under 12 miles of walking and more than 1100 metres of ascent today will take approximately 9 hours to complete. It is a tough day but the reward is undeniable.

Day 5: Loch Coulin/Loch Clair and The Whistle Stop Cafe

With two of The Torridon Giants behind us, today you have earnt a well-deserved rest. We will have a relaxed and late start before heading off up Glen Torridon to Loch Clair. Here we will do some stunning low level walking around Loch Clair and Loch Coulin. This has fantastic views of Beinn Eighe and Liathach. We will have plenty of time to complete this 9 kilometre trek. It will provide a great opportunity to take many photographs and to simply take in and enjoy this magnificent area. Once the walk is complete we will drive to Kinlochewe to the little gem that is The Whistle Stop Café. Here we will just relax and recover to ensure we can enjoy our final giant tomorrow.

Day 6: Liathachs and The Am Fasarinen Pinnacles

The last of The Torridon Giants will not disappoint. Liathach gives you the opportunity to enjoy the most technical scrambling of the 5 days for those who wish to do it. We will first head up our 5th munro of the week; Spidean a'Choire Leith. This is a somewhat relentless ascent, which should be taken slowly in order to be enjoyed. Once on the ridge, and weather dependant, we will have the opportunity to scramble along the famous Am Fasarinen Pinnacles. Do note, this is the most exposed and technical part of the Torridon Giant’s Trek and so you will be provided with harnesses and helmets and will be kept safe with ropes. Your guides are there to help and encourage you over this section. They fully understand that you may be nervous of this scramble. If the weather doesn’t allow, or some members of the group do not wish to scramble the pinnacles, then an alternative trek can be arranged. Our guides can change the route however they feel best. Therefore there is no pressure and no stress, only encouragement. After the pinnacles we will summit our 6th and final munro, Mullach an Rathain, before heading back down to the road. This day is a little over 7 miles, however with over 1300m of ascent. Much concentration is needed and so expect it to take approximately 10 hours. A fantastic way to end The Torridon Giants Trek!

Where You Will Be Staying

Torridon is a small coastal village in the North West of Scotland, with a magnificent combination of mountain and coastal scenery it is one of the prettiest areas of the UK. This area is incredibly remote and so there are fewer local facilities than you may be used to at home! The village itself has a shop and café that is open everyday except Sunday, but that really is about it. There are no banks, pharmacies, ATMs or other shops here and so try to make sure you bring everything you need with you. Don’t be worried though, while you should plan to bring everything you need if you do forget something extremely important we could take you to Inverness, which is a 2 hour drive away.
