What's near Torridon and Beinn Eighe?

The answer is  - plenty! Certainly more than enough to occupy several days, and to persuade you to stay for a while!

In the immediate area, of course, there's the village of Kinlochewe - this has local accommodation, walks, hotel, shop, and garage. For those that want some peace and quiet - Kinlochewe can provide that!

Torridon itself has a Countryside Visitor Centre, an excellent village shop, and the Torridon Inn. The Inn does a full range of meals, plus real ales, and has its own Walking festival and Real Ale festival towards Autumn time. For a dramatic drive, try the road to the small fishing community of Diabaig - single track all the way, but terrific scenery!

Heading North, Gairloch is an important centre for the area. It has a stunning sandy beach, a wide variety of boat trips available from the harbour, and an award winning Heritage Museum aimed at helping you understand the backgound to life along the seaboard.
There is so much to see around this area that there's a regular Wild About Nature week, and for 2013, this is taking place in the first week of September followed by a Food Weekend at the end of September boasting a wealth of local food experiences!

You’ll also find golf and angling opportunities, while yet another of those tempting little roads lead you round to Badachro and beyond, with fine coastal views again and fabulous clean sandy beaches. To the north of the loch, travel out towards Rua Reidh Lighthouse along a (very small) single track road, with amazing views out towards the islands of Skye, Lewis, Harris, and several others. Parking available about a half mile before the lighthouse.
