View to Upper Loch Torridon

A grand westward view from one of the lower hills across the glen from Liathach. I was walking along the high ground back towards our base at Torridon YHA after work and was treated to this fine view and interesting optical effect. A small cairn in the foreground and a map consultation of my old  OS OL Sheet 8 and my memory makes me think this was taken from the western end of Seana Mheallan. However, it is a long time ago and I may be mistaken. I also found, when searching for images of Seana Mheallan that the hill is the title of a folk song by Andrew Cronshaw. His notes about the song indicate his dog thought considerably less of the hill than either of us!


Looking west onto Upper Loch Torridon

The view along the glen to Upper Loch Torridon


The flat-topped hill on the right of shot is, I think, Beinn Alligin and the body of water is Upper Loch Torridon, the upper part of the sea loch that was gouged out by glaciers flowing down from the surrounding hills.

I am a palaeobiologist in my early 40's carrying out research work. I am based in Scotland.
