Torridon wildlife & scenery

Discover the wildlife and scenery of Torridon…

There truly is an abundance of wildlife to be found in the Scottish Highalnds. The majestic red deer, with their haunting roars, roam freely across the area. Sea otters are commonplace with sightings made regularly in Torridon, Diabaig, Shieldaig and Gairloch, and the area is a vital refuge for the rare and secretive pine marten. The bird life is amazing. The beautiful islands of Loch Maree and Shieldaig are home to sea eagles and black throated divers, and the area’s many lochans echo to the boom of the red throated divers. Golden eagles, ptarmigans, plovers, eider ducks, great northern divers, mergansers, gannets, puffins, guillemots – the list of Torridon wildlife is endless, and all can be seen in this very special area on the west coast of Scotland.
