Torridon, Glen Carron and Applecross

Beinn Alligin

Beinn Alligin probably isn't a mountain that springs to mind when considering skiing, yet with the right conditions, as with any hill, there's something worthwhile to be found.  Beinn Alligin is home to one of the jewels in the crown as far as gully skiing goes in Scotland: Deep South Gully.

Beinn Eighe

From the roadside in Glen Torridon, the long ridge of Beinn Eighe appears as a pleasant looking long ridge.  However, this hides a spectacular North side, and in particular, "Triple Buttress" in Coire Mhic Fearchair, one of the finest corries in the country.  Two very fine ski gullies are found here.  Fuselage gully bounds the West side of "Triple Buttress", and Morrison's Gully splits the North face of Sàil Mhòr, allowing a huge descent prior to your walk back to the car.

Liathach: Coire Dubh Beag and Coire Dubh Mor

Liathach is one of the finest mountains in Scotland.  The south face forms an imposing wall of sandstone tiers and vegetated terraces above the road in Glen Torridon.  After a thaw, it can almost be stripped bare in the sunshine, but the north facing corries can still contain snow and ice, so don't be put off!

Liathach: Coire Na Caime

A vast corrie consisting of several distinct areas, offering a mixture of graded gullies and big steep slopes, on different aspects.

Liathach: Glas-Toll a' Bothain

Located just to the West of Mullach an Rathain, this secluded corrie is not as grand as its Eastern neighbours, but offers more amenable skiing, with the bonus of (maybe) being able to ski of the summit.
