Coulin CorbettsThe mountainous area between Glen Carron and Glen Torridon is known as Coulin Forest. When Torridon's weather is grey and overcast, the tops of the higher peaks in Torridon and Coulin will be sulking in thick mist. Often at this time Sgurr Dubh and Sgorr nan Lochan Uaine on the southern side of Glen Torridon will be cloud free and well worth clambering over.
