- Torridon -trail conditions
Anyone been recently, I’m heading up in a few weeks and my mate has been told that some trails have been washed out by storms? (not sure where/what) guessing the annat and achnashellach descents will be ok, maybe the climb past loch coire fionnaraich?Posted 1 year ago
Also how about the loop round loch/beinn damh loop?
Thanks in advance…
Hey peeps, we’re due to be doing this route
In a couple of weeks. I’m hoping that the conditions are getting better. Any news of wash outs or the like?

.thinking tents now but unsure where.
There’s an unofficial campsite next to the youth hostel. Toilet block with shower available for use. Apart from that it’s a fairly soggy field
It’s early in the year but be warned, the midges could be the worst you’ll ever experience in your life.Posted 1 year agoDickBarton wrote:

We stayed here http://www.torridonestate.com/index.htm website is a bit thin on ground for info presently.
Be very particular about how you leave any cottage if you do stay there as they wanted it immaculate ready for next guest so they dont have to clean it. Withheld my deposit as they claimed that we hadn’t done various things and blocked a toilet. After many emails and lack of proof by them I was refunded, I am now banned from staying or booking any of their cottages 🙄

Gerrys hostel. Achnashellach side of the hills.
Tis a shame that Gerry himself is no longer with us. I’ll leave this blog extract (not mine) in memoriamPosted 1 year ago
The owner Gerry is the rudest man I have ever meet, it is said when he was drinking he would mellow out in the evening but now he has stopped the drink he stays his abusive, arrogant, self. I would say stay there are your peril, if you like to have abuse thrown at you for no good reason then go for it, TGO challengers you talk to who have stay there once never want to stay again would rather walk that bit further and camp I can see why nowstevenmenmuirSubscriber
Used to be a wee campsite in Lochcarron, couple of pubs and a restaurant too I think. We had good food at the smaller pub, can’t remember what it was called. You could also stay at Applecross but that’s not so handy for Torridon but you could do the Kenmore loop which is very good and passes the walled garden cafe.Posted 1 year ago
