Ross & Cromarty – Offering some of the oldest rock formations in Europe
Ross & Cromarty is located in the northern area of Scotland and has coasts on the North Sea and Atlantic.
The western area of the county, known as Wester Ross, is famous for its mountainous scenery. The region has some of the oldest rock formations in Europe. The Torridon Hills are composed of Precambrian Torridonian sandstone over Lewisian gneiss and capped by Cambrian quartzite (which can sometimes give the appearance of a snow topping on certain peaks).
Reasons to visit Ross & Cromarty
If you are going for the scenery (and most would), you may be interested in the Attadale Gardens in Strathcarron, Wester Ross which are well liked, or perhaps the Corrieshalloch Gorge which you can walk along the edge of, or see the waterfall and suspension bridge. Then of course you can visit Glen Torridon.
The Falls of Rogie are said to be spectacular, but if you don’t fancy the walks and climbs, you can view the falls from the swing bridge. If you have the energy, you could take on the Beinn Eighe Mountain Trail, or explore the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve.
Other places of interest include: EcoVentures, Plockton Seal Trips, Torridon Sea Tours, Torridon Activities (offering Archery, Kayaking, Walking, Mountain guiding, Mountain Bike Hire, Clay Pigeon shooting and more), Glenmorangie Distillery and the Tarbat Discovery Centre.
