Description

Starting at the car park, where the Torridon stag can frequently be seen.

It is a long gentle walk through the mountains to Loch Coire.

You then walk around the loch to the far side.

From the loch it is a scramble over the rocks and up a steep and rocky gully.

Once at the top you turn left to summit 1010m, coming back again you carry on along the ridge, with amazing views on a clear day.

Along the ridge you reach the second summit at 993m, coming back on yourself slightly and taking the steep path down the mountainside, this path can have many loose rocks.

Halfway down the mountain you will find a well maintained path which takes you down to the roadside and the second car park.

A gentle mile walk along the road will then take you back to the first car park.

You could extend along the ridgeline to summit 2 more Munros, with the option to go down the NE side, or come back on yourself to go down the South side as described. I saw many Red deer on this hike.
