Hill track from Achnashellach to the Ling Hut Torridon

By Julian Paren

There are a number of ways to walk from Achnashellach to Glen Torridon. This route joins two marked hill tracks to make a through route from Achnashellach to the Ling Hut in the middle of Glen Torridon. The highest point is a bealach at around 650 m at the head of Glen Lair.

The trackless middle kilometre of the walk has no hazards; the stream crossing is easy. On this occasion a detour was made to follow a short way the track to Annat from the col. Future walkers can omit this, and make a more direct route.

With a lunch by the unnamed lochan below the col, this 9.4 mile walk took seven hours with numerous stops to study the local ecology (particularly at the unnamed lochan) and a raft of images for the Geograph project. You can see this trip plotted on a map on the Geo-trips page Link .
