This linear walk heads into the wild country immediately north of Torridon, passing round the hidden side of Liathach. This side of the mountain has great character and spectacular corries unseen from the road, making the through route a memorable one. There is no public transport linking the start and end of the walk so private arrangements need to be made.


Clear path throughout, though boggy and very rough in the central section.

Public Transport



Car park just west of the bridge over the Allt a Choire Dhuibh Mhòir. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
