Discover Scotland’s highest mountain ranges and magnificent hill summits offering dramatic landscapes and some of the most spectacular sights in the world. A “Munro” refers to any mountain over 3,000ft (917m) high in Scotland, taking their name from the person that compiled the original list – Hugh Munro, back in 1891. “Munro bagging” is a popular trekking activity in Scotland as the area creates an ideal playground for walking enthusiasts. Torridon is the most westerly mountain range of the Scottish Highlands with 282 Munros. On our trip, we will summit some of the most memorable, such as Beinn Alligin – meaning Jewelled Hill, one of the most rewarding peaks of the Torridon Munros.
