Activities

The Torrin area is in many ways a hidden gem with a diversity of habitat, e.g. mountain, moorland, sea-shore, sea marsh, sea cliffs, and beach.

With much to see, from otters to the iconic golden eagle, our local area is a paradise for photographers.

Many other interests including geological, caving, archaeological and historical, can be pursued in this locality.

Elgol (8 miles from Torrin) boat trips are strongly recommended as an excellent day out, visit Loch Coruisk deep in the Cuillin Mountains or some of the islands of the Inner Hebrides, with the possibility of sightings of dolphins, porpoises, whales or basking sharks amid dramatic scenery.
