From the summit of the island of Inchcailloch to Torrinch, Creinch, Inchmurrin and Ben Bowie.

Torrinch or Inchtore (Scottish Gaelic: Torr-Innis) is an island in Loch Lomond in Scotland. The name Torremach is also recorded for it.[1] It is wooded.[2]

Geography[edit]

It is one of the smaller islands in the loch. Torrinch, along with Inchmurrin, Creinch, and Inchcailloch, forms part of the Highland Boundary Fault.[3] In the 1800s it was covered with oaks.[4]

It lies just to the south-west of the larger island of Inchcailloch, and north-east of Creinch.
