A 16,000-acre estate including some of Scotland's finest mountain scenery, comprising Liathach (3,456ft), which has seven tops, and Beinn Alligin (3,232ft). The mountains, in addition to their scenic splendour, hold much of interest to geologists and naturalists.

Liathach is of Torridonian sandstone some 750 million years old; the tops, of white quartzite some 150 million years younger. A National Trust for Scotland Countryside Centre, with interpretative display and an audio-visual presentation on wildlife, is at the junction of A896 and the Diabaig road. There is also a Deer Museum located 600 yards down the gravel road leading to The Mains.
