Extra info
Torridon is a small village ...

Torridon is a small village in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland. However the name is also applied to the area surrounding the village, particularly the Torridon Hills, mountains to the north of Glen Torridon. It lies on the shore of Loch Torridon.

John Brenchley named this dance after Torridon Street in Perth, Western Australia, in an area where names of Scottish origin abound.
