Liathach in Torridon

Liathach, "the Grey One", is situated in the heart of the Torridon. The most dramatic of the Torridon Giants, its slopes are composed of terraced sandstone, above which the highest peaks are topped with quartzite blocks. Forboding on first aquantiance, there are however some chinks in Liathach's armour which has allowed rough routes to develop over time.
