Loch Torridon Hotel walk

All of these landscapes are from a walk beginning at Loch Torridon Hotel that heads towards Balgy. The route is easy going following a track, and on good day you will get decent views of Beinn Alligin and Liathach across upper Loch Torridon. The day of this walk wasn’t a day for clear views, though the weather resulted in some interesting low cloud formations. Right at the beginning of the walk you can take a small divergence...

This set of pictures are from the Beinn Eighe woodland walk and part of the mountain trail walk which are accessible from the Coille na Glas-Leitir car park on the shores of Loch Maree.

Poolewe walk round Loch Kernsary

The Poolewe walk round Loch Kernsary is simple to follow and reasonably easy, a few short inclines and boggy in places.

You can park in a lay-by on the opposite side of the road that is very close to the footpath. Once you reach the other end of Loch Kernsary you...

Ardessie Falls & Gruinard Bay

Both Ardessie Falls and Gruinard Bay are located along the A832 (between Gairloch and Ullapool) in the Torridon region. The walk to the Ardessie Falls is reasonably easy, a short, sometimes boggy and steep walk. I discovered 3 waterfalls of which 2 of them are shown here. You may also be lucky enough to get a good view across Loch Broom on a fine day (not in my case). Olympus OM4ti & Zuiko Olympus 24mm F2 lens at F16. Fuji Velvia...

Ardheslaig & Ob Chuaig walks

This set of landscape shots are from a couple of walks last year found on the Applecross Peninsula in the Torridon region. The Ardheslaig walk will take to you Kenmore and back, however the weather turned very wet just after taking this panorama of Ardheslaig, which was only a short climb from the start. Olympus OM-D EM-5 DSLR & Zuiko Olympus 35-80mm F2.8 at F11. The decision was made to return to the car before getting too...
